Yohji Yamamoto at the V&A



The Yohji Yamamoto retrospective at the V&A is an exhibition worth visiting if you are a fervent admirer. I'm not someone who is particularly interested in his work but was fascinated by the exhibition and the pieces on show there. A warning, however: don't expect a large show, as it is (just) one room - which could seem strange conisdering the cost - but the neat organisation manages to cram a lot of info and clothes in.
The exhibition itself really seems to respect the spirit of Yamamoto's work, recreating the clean, minimalistic and quasi clinical atmosphere of his shows and creations. The 60 pieces on display trace his career back to the very start in the late 80s and really provide a good starting for those who, like me, don't know much at all about him, just as it offers ample enjoyment for those who are more familiar with his collections.

The exhibition runs until the 12th of July at the V&A.
