A short and intimate documentary film directed by Theodore Stanley about the visionary designer Yohji Yamamoto. The extremely private fashion design icon lets the world take a rare peek at his creative process from conception to the runway.

Hailed as a master of modern fashion, Yamamoto is best known for his use of asymmetry and androgyny in his designs. His penchant for structural silhouettes makes his avant-garde designs utterly distinctive. In the film, Yohji Yamamoto opens up about his artistic inspirations and takes the film crew through his entire creative cycle for his collaboration line with adidas, Y-3.

Whether you’re a fan his rigorous aesthetic or not, I think there is something to be gleaned from the quiet dedication evident even in this small clip. The documentary is set to be released to the public in the end of 2011.
