At first glance, Yohji Yamamoto's latest collection felt like a departure.Towards tattoo and tribal, psychodelia and visual shock. Recurrent motifs: skulls, roses, serpents. In fact, it was not a change of methodology, nor psychology. Instead of covering everything in black dye/ink, the inner essence and tradition of Japanese visual culture was made visible. Yamamoto revealed himself (as friend of Tadanori Yokoo); of course only to those who remember.
