A Notebook on Cities & Clothes

When I first saw Win Wenders 1989 film, the scenes of Paris rooftops inspired me as much as the hands of Yamamoto. Twenty years later, the director is still shooting underseen projects and Yamamoto has been through bankruptcy. But the film's glimpses of Paris and Tokyo, and of inside the fashion studio, retain the beauty they had at first. Thanks to the Centre Pompidou for supporting this project, for asking the viewer to slow down and watch fashion as a graudal creation, a philosophical process, a memory.
