Luxurious book specialist Rizzoli has released a 400-plus page "exploration" of fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto's extensive career and body of work, entitled Yamamoto & Yohji. 

Similar to an encyclopaedia in terms of its pages, fans will find within its covers a careful study of an iconic and technical designer who favours using black, and seems only to enhance a limitless ability to be creative.
