To mark the arrival of Yohji Yamamoto’s Men’s and Women’s AW13 collections at LN-CC, the store has curated a retrospective selection of music and books that cover the breadth of the designer’s career. Acknowledging the central importance of music to Yamamoto’s work and especially his runway shows, LN-CC presents an archival selection of the designer’s musical output, ranging from the early ’80s until 2002. Included is the music composed for his Paris runway shows, catalogued as The Show volumes, as well as the varied collaborative work that the designer has released with a range of Japanese music legends such as YMO’s Takahashi Yukihiro and Keiichi Suzuki.
Also presented are a selection of books, including retrospective titles such as REWIND FAST FORWARD and the biographical MY DEAR BOMB. These are offered alongside TALKING TO MYSELF, a book which Yamamoto was involved in at every stage to build a creative and illustrative notebook that gives the reader a sincere and genuine insight into his own private world and key phases in his life.
