Two long white dresses, Yohji Yamamoto, Autumn/Winter 1996-97

'I'm searching for a new proportion. What interests me is the 'space' between the person wearing the clothes and the clothes themselves - the airiness, the movement, the silhouette'.

The space between the garment and the body is of great importance to Yamamoto. It allows the wearer to inhabit the garment naturally, without being constricted by its shape. The structure of these two sculptural white felt pieces, determined partly by the material itself, offers such a space.
