So last week I was shooting a campaign with my friend Ett Venter, such a rad guy and great photographer.. and I missed three things! So here is this week's.. right on time. ;)
grace and peace
Legendary fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto admits he was tired of making fancy clothing in the new short doc Master of the Shadows. Filmed around Y-3’s AW16 show, the designer is reflecting on his thirteen-year collaboration with adidas and how it revived his love of design at a time he was falling out of love with fashion.
The clothing, Y-3 is incredible, I would kill for those shoes. Here is the thing though, he revamped and revived his entire career at around 60. SIXTY!!! The world has changed most definitely, when many people used to think about where they will retire many now are shining in the last third of their lives, creating their best work.
watch the film below, I recommend putting on the youtube generated subtitles (even though they aren't correct all the time).
This is by me, Pierre, each week I post three things that grabbed my attention, and that I like. You can also sign up for the newsletter version here
