Words are very important to Yohji Yamamoto. Not the endless flood of words used to fill silences, but only those words that seek out the silence, that go for depth, ask questions, listen, look, confirm, words that give warmth, words that sing.
Similarly, every new magazine in our series starts with a conversation. Words that capture the essence of that conversation are used to sketch the rough outlines of the concept. These words are written onto a white sheet. Every time we start with a blank page. Every magazine is a new story.
And so this has become a magazine of many words. About friendships, about collaborations, about admiration. Conversations with 20th century icons and the young turks of today. Words of and about ‘soulmates’, who share the same fascinations, strive for the same quality, travel the same roads, seek the same silences.
