Notebook on Cities and Clothes (1989)
Director: Wim Wenders
German director Wim Wender tells the story of a young Yohji Yamamoto. He follows the designer as he prepares to debut another collection in Paris. Perhaps what makes this different from other Yamamoto portraits is that the documentary ends up being much about the skill, aesthetic, and work of the designer as it is about the relations Wender makes between film and fashion.
Certain parts of Yamamoto's scenes are in Japanese, so be sure to look out for a version with subtitles.
