'When Yohji Yamamoto wants to convey his ideas to the people he works with he uses words, not drawings.
Each of his collaborations with an artist, a photographer, a scenographer, a filmmaker, a choreographer started with a conversation. Sometimes, as is apparent from interviews within this issue, a few words were enough to realise beautiful projects, develop special friendships, build things that transcend the ordinary.
Words are very important to Yohji. Not the endless flood of words used to fill silences, but only those words that seek out the silence, that go for depth, ask questions, listen, look, confirm, words that give warmth, words that sing.
In between the lines you can read that we were very happy and honoured to welcome Yohji as the curator of this magazine. We invite you to share that happiness, to read this magazine through Yohji's eyes and to listen with him to all those who have inspired, admired and touched him.'
