The Art of Anti-Fashion

Yohji Yamamoto: The fashion designer who redesigned fashion

As one of the most mentally rigorous designers working in fashion, Yohji Yamamoto creates garments that can be intellectual—sometimes even difficult—yet always beautiful. Yamamoto’s free-spirited world is explored here via i-D magazine’s archives starting back in the 1980s, including his adoration for women and the female form, the painful process of creating anti-fashion through fashion and how his timeless utilitarian designs can be both avant-garde and classic at once.

Packed into 120 pages is biographical and personal information as well as imagery from over 30 years of i-D’s history with images from photographers including Paolo Roversi, Max Vadukul, and Nick Knight, plus interviews with Jamie Huckbody, Holly Shackleton, and Terry Jones.
The editor

Founder and editor-in-chief of i-D magazine, Terry Jones started his fashion career in the 1970s as art director of Vanity Fair and Vogue UK. Since 1977 his Instant Design studio has produced catalogues, campaigns, exhibitions, and books, including TASCHEN’s Smile i-D, Fashion Now 1, Fashion Now 2, and Soul i-D.
