Pitti Discovery and Pitti Immagine Uomo present
Y'S - Yamamoto
The fashion show at the Stazione Leopolda and the Exhibition at Palazzo Pitti
The clothes displayed in the museum’s 30 rooms were selected on the basis of their ability to interact with the artworks. The exhibition, art directed by Yohji Yamamoto’s long time collaborator Masao Nihei, is characterized by opulent simplicity. A dialogue is created by the placement of the garments and the artwork; hinting at hypothetical encounters; seeking eye contact with the observer. The subtle light dominating the exhibition is broken by sudden, harsh flashes.
Correspondences was the first part of a collaboration between Florence and Paris that was followed by a separate Yohji Yamamoto exhibition at the Musée de la Mode et du Textile of the Louvre from 12 April to 28 August 2005.
The January monograph issue of A Magazine, the six-monthly journal published for the Flanders Fashion Institute of Antwerp, was dedicated to Yohji Yamamoto. The issue included also coverage of the exhibit.
On the afternoon of 12 January, Yohji Yamamoto presented also his fashion show at the Stazione Leopolda featuring the 2005/2006 fall-winter collection of his Y’s line.
