Single Shot – Yohji Yamamoto

The Talk:  “After 30 years, are people still too stuck up when it comes to what they wear?”
“I simply cannot stand people’s tendency to become conservative.  There’s always a move back to established conventions, otherwise upcoming waves would be soon categorised as common sense.  Even the term avant-garde.  Avant-garde is now just a tiny fashion category.  It became so cheap and pretentious.  I hate it.  But still, I strongly believe in the avant-garde spirit: to voice opposition to traditional values.  It is not just a youthful sentiment; I live my life by it.  Rebellion.  You will only be able to oppose something and find something of your own after travelling the long road to tradition”.
