'For me, a woman who is absorbed in her work, who does not care about gaining one's favour, strong yet subtle at the same time, is essentially more seductive. The more she hides and abandons her femininity, the more it emerges from the very heart of her existence'.

Yamamoto designs outside gender stereotypes, at times in direct opposition to them. He is particularly known for his white shirts and dark suits, all carefully tailored yet androgynous in shape.
