Yamamoto’s Dream

May 20, 2011

Como parte de uma grandiosa comemoração dos 10 anos de colaboração entre Yohji Yamamoto e Adidas, será lançado um documentário de 30 minutos sobre o homem por trás de uma das mais celebradas linhas de sportswear – a Y-3.

Dirigido por Theo Stanley, o curta entitulado This Is My Dream se concentra nos meses anteriores ao show de Primavera Verão 2010 de Yamamoto em Nova York e inclui algumas gravações de coleções antigas, como sua seminal coleção feminina inaugural de 1981, ano em que a moda japonesa conquistou o mundo com peças amplas em preto-e-branco.

Se inicialmente as criações de Yamamoto possuiam formas masculinas inspiradas pelas roupas de trabalho Japonesas e por aquelas usadas no campo, a maioria pretas e simples, escondendo a complexidade do trabalho, com o tempo evoluiram para peças mais estruturadas e justas ao corpo. Para a coleção de Primavera Verão 2010, a Y-3 se inspirou no amor do designer pelo rock & roll.

This Is My Dream estará disponível para compra em DVD nas lojas da Y-3 globalmente e também pelo website Y-3.com a partir do outono.

As part of a large-scale celebration of the 10th anniversary collaboration between Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas, comes a 30 minute film on the man behind one of sportswear’s most celebrated lines.

Directed by Theo Stanley, the short documentary titled This Is My Dream centres in the months leading up to the showing of his Spring/Summer ’10 show in New York and includes some drool-worthy footage from collections past, as his seminal inaugural 1981 women’s collection, the year that Japanese fashion really took the world by storm with the designers’ black and white outfits in loose-fitting styles.

If initially Yamamoto’s creations had a masculine shape inspired by Japanese workwear and country clothing, most came in black and were simple, hiding the complexity of the work, with time evolving to more structured clothes and fitted to the body. For Spring/Summer 2011, Y-3 is inspired by the designer’s love for rock & roll.

This Is My Dream will become available for purchase on DVD at all Y-3 stores globally as well as on Y-3.com in the fall.
