This “diary film,” as Wenders calls it, investigates the similarities of the filmmaking craft to that of the Tokyo-based fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto, who, in the early 1980s, shocked and revolutionized the fashion world with his avant-garde designs. Wenders shot the film on his own, without the use of a film crew. During this unusual production, which stretched out over the course of a year, Yamamoto and Wenders became friends. “Fashion. I got nothing to do with that. At least that was my reaction when the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris asked me if I would like to make a short film about a fashion designer . . . The world of fashion. I am interested in the world, not in fashion. But maybe my judgment was premature. Why shouldn’t I try to approach the topic without prejudices? Why not look at fashion like any other industry, the film industry, for example?”—Wim Wenders.
