interview

YOHJI UNPLUGGED: “An Evening with Yohji Yamamoto” at Soho House Berlin, the second installment in the four-part Yohji-thon during Berlin Gallery Weekend, provided another intriguing view of the Japanese designer and his work. Yamamoto bared a great deal in conversation with i-D’s Terry Jones and architectural designer Asif Khan. Among the tidbits Yamamoto served up Friday night:


On how he developed his personal taste: “I’m a big victim of women. I have been controlled by femme fatales for more than 60 years. And even now.”

On the difference between taste and fashion:
“I hate fashion. Or the word fashion, which sounds colorful, extravagant, expensive and gorgeous.…I never wanted to walk the main street of fashion. I have been walking the sidewalks of fashion from the beginning, so I’m a bit dark.”

On explaining his style: “I have no style as Mr. Yohji Yamamoto. I’m working each season against something, always antisomething though I can’t remember it all. Mainly I design clothing as an antitrend, antifashion [so] naturally I’m spending my life in a big paradox….I don’t really trust my point of view always, and sometimes rebel against myself too. I only like it when my work surprises myself. I don’t feel my work has a style. It’s more about the approach I take. It has to make me happy somehow, even though it makes me sad a lot.”

On the real/young Yohji: “I’m from the typical story of WWII, the only son of a WWII war widow. I had no idea of the meaning of family. We were just the two [of us], and she was missing her husband of whom I had no memory. She was expecting two men from me and I feel I’ve been carrying big luggage on my shoulders since I was five years old. Sometimes my mother told me directly ‘Yohji, you are the only reason I live.’ It was terrifying.”

On his clothes always seeming to protect the woman: “I told you already, I’m a victim of women. I naturally love women but at the same time, I hate. I want revenge in some way. The reason I could continue to work till now is revenging.”

On whether women are better clothed or unclothed: “Better clothed. As much as possible!”

On the greatest lesson learned from his mother so far: A long silence…“She was too busy to educate me, she just worked and worked. One day when I was a primary school student, I stole something from a shop. I found a very charming new eraser. The color was sort of pink and pale green. It looked delicious, and I ate it. And then I found out it was an eraser. I know I’d done a wrong, bad thing. One of my ex-ex-ex brothers [friends] told the story to my mother. My mother fell to the floor and started crying. She rolled around and around on the tatami mat, and I felt very sexy. So — I found out my mother is a woman. It was a big education.”

Thanks softgrey for the article. I'm not quite clear on the tone of the above quote, but just reading it sounds like a surreal comedy: "My mom found out I had stolen an eraser that I ate because I thought it looked delicious, and she proceeded to fall to the floor crying and rolling around, which I thought was rather... sexy..." Too (unintentionally) funny! Lost in translation?

^^^Cheeky monkey Yohji.

There's definitely a sly, perverse sense of humor to him. I think most people's perception of Yohji is that he's this pensive, intense, always serious sage of the fashion world. But I'm so glad he's not. The thing is, Asian women of his mom's generation-- in particular Japanese women, are so unintentionally dramatic about the littlest things: tell them that their soup wasn't really good, and they'll likely feel they need to commit ritual suicide. Then to picture a young Yohji seeing his mother spazzing out on the floor just because she found out he stole an eraser, AND he found her dramatics... sexy. It's really comedy gold, at the expense of the poor woman. Love it.
