“Talking to myself” is a two volumes publication that celebrates the first twenty years of activity of Japanese fashion de- signer Yohji Yamamoto.

The great number of original drawings and sketches included shows the creativity of Yamamoto and reveals his unconventional and revolutionary approach to fashion design. The volume is completed with a biographical note by philosopher Kiyokazu Washida and some intriguing con- siderations on fashion by Yohji Yamamoto. The second volume is a complete guide to all his collections from 1982 to 2002, and shows the most representative creations presented during tashion events in Paris.
