Yohji Yamamoto at the Victoria and Albert Museum

As one of the world’s most visionary living designers, Yohji Yamamoto has made profound contributions to fashion in the 30 years since his Paris debut. A true vanguard, Yamamoto’s work has been celebrated by discerning editors and arts organisations the world over.

Given Vintage Secret’s own obsession with the avant garde icon, we’re eagerly awaiting Yamamoto’s first solo exhibition in the UK, kicking off on 12 March 2011 at the Victoria and Albert Museum London. His forward-thinking, futuristic garments will be displayed alongside Renaissance sculptures and marble staircases, the exhibition designed by long-time Yamamoto collaborator Masao Nihei. The retrospective will be the first to exhibit items from his menswear collections, in addition to mixed media—from photographs to films—reflecting the depth of Yamamoto’s prolific career.

Tickets to the exhibition are £7, with concessions available. Keep an eye on the V&A website for more information in the new year. V&A members may attend for free.
