ALL ABOUT YOHJI: London’s Victoria and Albert Museum this coming spring will stage the first British solo exhibition celebrating the work of Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto. The retrospective, which comes on the heels of previous solo shows in Florence, Paris and Antwerp, Belgium, in recent years, will feature for the first time items from Yamamoto’s men’s wear collection. Due to run from March 12 to July 10, the V&A exhibit will coincide with two displays at the Wapping Project, a center for the arts in East London located in a former hydraulic power station. The museum said some 80 pieces spanning Yamamoto’s 30-year career would be spread across spaces including its Renaissance sculpture gallery and an alcove overlooking the John Madejski garden.
