'This is my idea for a woman's body. I like the curve of a woman's back. I always watch her silhouette in the streets'.

One of Yamamoto's most inspiring encounters was with German choreographer Pina Bausch. To Yamamoto, Bausch represented the perfect silhouette. Also, both their work allowed space for the viewer and wearer's interpretation. Yamamoto designed a number of collections in homage to Bausch, including this silhouette.
