Edited by Yayoi Motohashi
This impressive volume is part of an exhibition at the National Art Center, Tokyo, in 2016, the first full-scale retrospective to showcase the myriad ideas that have emerged over the course of the designer’s career, from his earliest activities to current projects. Widely recognised for his technology-driven clothing designs, exhibitions, and fragrances, Miyake Issey has been stimulating the world of culture and fashion for almost half a century with his organic and skilfully articulated repertoire, fuelled by boundless curiosity and love of experimentation. The catalogue explores the main themes of his innovative drive, complemented by Hiroshi Iwasaki’s expert photography.
