Ri­leg­ge­re Is­sey Miya­ke

Rein­ter­pre­ting Is­sey Miya­ke

Abitare - - BOOSTER -

The in­tri­guing, mul­ti-fa­ce­ted gar­men­ts de­si­gned by Is­sey Miya­ke float in spa­ce like ethe­real sculp­tu­res. They ta­ke lit­tle ac­count of the mo­re com­mon con­cerns of fa­shion (sex ap­peal, sta­tus) and aim to do no mo­re than “find an in­te­re­sting re­la­tion­ship bet­ween the hu­man bo­dy and a pie­ce of clo­th”. This un­con­ven­tio­nal fa­shion de­si­gner, born in Hi­ro­shi­ma in 1938, has been ex­pe­ri­men­ting wi­th tech­ni­ques, ma­te­rials and work pro­ces­ses for for­ty years. And not ju­st in the field of clo­thing: he won a Com­pas­so d’Oro award for his poe­tic pa­per lamps (ma­de by Ar­te­mi­de) in 2014, and he will bring a col­lec­tion of ce­ra­mics, glass and fa­brics (de­si­gned for Iit­ta­la) to the 2016 Mi­lan Fur­ni­tu­re Fair. Mea­n­whi­le the Na­tio­nal Art Cen­ter of To­kyo is loo­king back at his work in an ex­hi­bi­tion en­ti­tled The Work of Miya­ke Is­sey (from 16 Mar­ch to 13 Ju­ne).
