Japanese and Vintage – Yohji Yamamoto at the V&A

During an afternoon at Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto’s exhibition in the Victoria and Albert museum I was treated to some stunning garments, not just in Yamamoto’s collection, but also on some rather well turned out museum visitors. Pace and his pal Hsiang let me have a quick snap of them outside the exhibition. I was particularly struck by Hsiang’s fantastic black and cream chunky platforms,¬†ever so slightly reminiscent¬†of morris dancing shoes.
