ISSEY MIYAKE has regularly participated in Paris Fashion Week since 1973. The design concept challenges the conventional idea of garment making and strives to highlight the relationship between body and cloth.
Issey Miyake is an internationally renowned designer. Inheriting his spirit of innovative product creation with the goal of enhancing people’s daily lives, Miyake staff constantly search for ways to incorporate the joy of life into the company’s creations.
Sun, moon, stars. The Issey Miyake’s basic philosophy is the continuing focus on both the importance of imagination and the development of new technology in which to make clothing. Spring/Summer 2014 brought the silvery light of the moon and stars to the runway through techniques like steam stretching and grid knitting; techniques that could sound as if they might only be accomplished by an ancient and mysterious order of textile-working monks. And yet the results were simple to behold, though none the less impressive: making something highly complex look beautifully simple is a specialty of the brand, after all.
