“Yes. In the world, in life, 90 percent of people are spending so-called ordinary life. Have a family, have a child, and get educated: ordinary. Grow up: ordinary, and get married: ordinary. And getting a job: ordinary and getting old: ordinary, and getting sick: ordinary, and going to the grave: ordinary. More than 90 percent. This is not my customer.
The people who choose freedom, these are special people, or these are the sad people, you can say. Freedom carries a strong responsibility. If you deny the way of ordinary families, you have to find how you make people sad, how you are hurting people. What you are creating or what you are saying is not understood, so you will always feel isolation. It’s always walking on the edge of life, every day. I call this 'outside of life.'" -Yohji Yamamoto
Yohji Yamamoto is like a sage of all things that are awesome in the universe, not only of style and fashion.
Yes he is.
