‘Notebook on Cities and Clothes’ (1989, 81 mins) is a film portrait of Tokyo based fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto. Wim Wenders was commissioned by the Centre Georges Pompidou to make a film about fashion and its place in contemporary society. Moving between Tokyo and Paris, from the creation of one collection to its premiere at a fashion show, the film is an intimate portrait of a consummate professional and an engaging exploration of the visual medium.
