This is one of those books you do not read at once, you keep it next to you for brief moments of inspiration. It is a sneak peak in the world of a sensitive, complex and talented designer, but above all an artist...

This book is beautiful. It gave me a new perspective on making clothes, I particularly love how he described where to put a button hole. I really recommend this book for anyone interested in clothes and the creative process.

Fascinating and endearingly pretentious free-form sort of memoir that gave me a new appreciation for Yamamoto's designs.

I translated the book. Yamamoto being such a giant in the fashion world, of course they came right to stylish me for the English translation. I am nothing if not a fashion leader. Right?

“I exist here, now. I'm not much interested in the future. Or, more precisely put, I do not believe in the future. To exaggerate a little, I have no faith that I will still exist tomorrow or the day after. What is more, I absolutely detest retrospection. That dislike is balances only by my desire to make my way back home as quickly as possible.” 37 likes
