In 1989, WIM WENDERS was commissioned by the Centre Georges Pompidou to make a film about fashion and its place in contemporary society. Initially bemused by the offer, the award-winning director chose to focus on a designer whose work he was both familiar with and felt comfortable in, Yohji Yamamoto.
Like Tokyo-Ga, NOTEBOOK ON CITIES AND CLOTHES gradually transforms from a meditation on our relationship with fashion to an exploration of visual representation, creating a dialogue between the language of fashion and that of film. Both are rapidly changing forms of communication, whose progressiveness is often breathtaking. As Yamamoto constantly searches for new modes of expression, Wim Wenders embraces video technology, which offers more flexibility when recording such a fast-paced world.
Moving between Tokyo and Paris, from the creation of one collection to its premiere at a fashion show, NOTEBOOK ON CITIES AND CLOTHES is an intimate portrait of a consummate professional and an engaging exploration of the visual medium.
