YOHJI YAMAMOTO Autumn Winter 2018-19 Installation

2018/9/12/Wed. 〈 INFORMATION DESK 〉

The photographs are straight-forward. They aim to establish a face-to-face relation between the collection pieces and the audience.
12 of the photographs from the Art Book will be meticulously selected and will be exhibited at the Yohji Yamamoto Aoyama Flagship store.
This is not just¬ a photographic exhibition. It is an installation project that presents the photography in “original prints”, as “real representations” of the printed versions shown in the Art Book. Tangible and real, just like the clothes we are presenting in the store. The photo Art Book is a comprehensive incarnation of the Yohji Yamamoto Autumn/Winter 2018-2019 collection. The original prints will express it as a variety of dynamic and raw cut-scenes. In accordance with the designer’s specific wish to treat the “photographs” as “clothes”, to keep them close to you, like something very personal, we will sell each original print as collection pieces, along with the rest of the ready-to-wear collection. Each print will be an unique piece, executed with the technique of Platinum printing. A very delicate, large tonal range allows a deep expression in color tones and contrasts. It is the most stable material for photo-printing and has a durability for several centuries.
