CdG & Yohji Yamamoto : pre-1981
does anybody know where there are images of rei kawakubo's and yohji yamamoto's work before 1981? their debut paris shows that year were watershed moments in fashion but it would be interesting to see the evolution of their work up to that point.

^^ is that really Joseph Beuys suit in Atelier shop ?
I know the Tate has one in their collection ...
and I know he did some multiples ...
BUT
is that a 'real' Beuys piece ?
or just a felt tailored suit and hung like Beuys ?

- i never seen the collar like this ! -

ok finally found a piece of early yohji yamamoto... this top. old, old Y's label (it still said "a division of Y's company ltd"); before his revolutionary paris runway debut, before he started using "yohji yamamoto" as his label. in this garment i can see the stirrings of that watershed paris debut--it is very japanese (kimono-inspired) and also there is some asymmetry. i suspect this is from 1980 or 1981... on the eve of his first paris show.
