Kansai Yamamoto dies age 76

Acclaimed Japanese fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto, known for his avant-garde collections and career-defining collaboration with David Bowie, has died aged 76.

Yamamoto was known for creating bold avant-garde pieces that defied gender norms and featured brilliant colours and patterns. Yamamoto's designs often incorporated elements from Japanese culture.

Louis Vuitton’s resort 2018 collection, shown in Kyoto, featured a number of graphic designs created in collaboration with Kansai Yamamoto — including the Petit Malle purse and a dress patterned with a traditional Japanese caricature of a yakko (warrior).
