MAR 12: Yohji Yamamoto
This month the work of Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto will be all over London. From March 12 to July 10, the Victoria and Albert Museum will display Yohji-clad mannequins scattered throughout its nooks and crannies. Meanwhile, across town, the Wapping Project Bankside will present “Yohji’s Women” (March 12 to May 14), a photo exhibit highlighting the designer’s aesthetic relationship with the fairer sex. Finally, the Wapping Project will install a single Yohji piece—a 1998 oversize white silk wedding dress with a bamboo crinoline—in a former hydraulic power station. Closer inspection of the work will be possible from a small wooden skiff rowed by a boatman across an artificial lake to the center of the exhibit space.
