In A NOTEBOOK ON CITIES AND CLOTHES, Wim Wenders offers a handsome, clever portrait of revered Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto.In this film, the director has taken on the subject of Japanese designer as he prepares to debut his designs for another season in Paris
Along with his countrymen Issey Miyake and Rei Kawakubo, Yamamoto is one of the few modern designers who can truly be called an artist. His clothes combine function with breathtaking beauty, incorporating a purity of line, a sensual correctness of fabric and a compelling rigor of color–primarily black, white, navy and red–which make them instantly identifiable as his, as well as a sublime luxury to wear.

The documentary is as much a meditation by the director on the meaning of documenatries and information in the age of electronic data and computerized images as it is about the skill, dedication, philosophy and work of the fashion designer.
