    1 thought on “My Dear Bomb”

    1. This is one of those books you do not read at once, you keep it next to you for brief moments of inspiration. It is a sneak peak in the world of a sensitive, complex and talented designer, but above all an artist

    2. This book is beautiful. It gave me a new perspective on making clothes, I particularly love how he described where to put a button hole. I really recommend this book for anyone interested in clothes and the creative process.

    3. Lots of people have reviewed this very well, and I'm glad they enjoyed it. Yamamoto's work in fashion needs none of my plaudits, so I won't wax poetical about the drape of his gabardine pants, for example, or the influence he's had on streetwear. In this volume he comes across as pretentious and not as deep as he thinks. Not to mention, the first page reveals him as a misogynist.

    4. Fascinating and endearingly pretentious free-form sort of memoir that gave me a new appreciation for Yamamoto's designs.

    5. I translated the book. Yamamoto being such a giant in the fashion world, of course they came right to stylish me for the English translation. I am nothing if not a fashion leader. Right?

    6. Really great book on craftsmanship, identity, and the creative process. Definitely provides an interesting perspective on fashion and work.
