Yohji Yamamoto at Israel’s Design Museum Holon

The Design Museum Holon in Israel is hosting an exhibition in tribute to famed avant-garde fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto.  The Japanese designer is known for his conceptual, dramatic garments that take on sculptural, unexpected shapes.  Yamamoto created site-specific installations for the exhibition with the intent to create a dialogue between the garments and the museum environment.  80 looks are included in the show, the majority in his preferred color – black – through pops of color intersperse the exhibition.  The show will remain on view through October 20th, and upon seeing a few of the installation images below, it is sure to be an incredible one.
