Designer Profile - Issey Miyake

Issey Miyake has defined fabric technology since the 1980’s, when the brand began experimenting with new methods of permanent pleating that would offer movement and flexibility to the wearer.

Issey Miyake continually blurs the lines between art and fashion. His clothing is at home in both museum collections and personal wardrobes. Often sculptural, the brand’s pieces play with the lines of the body.

With a variety of different lines, from Bao Bao bags to the recent 132 5. Issey Miyake retains a pure philosophy about fashion: “Clothing is the closest thing to all humans.”
