Issey Miyake is one of the most inventive creators of the late twentieth century. From the 1970s to the present he has searched for different ways by which an article of clothing can be defined. Miyake is first and foremost the originator of an unparalleled design, which lies at the intersection of all media, practices and approaches. It has been almost thirty years since this forerunner to the clothing of today first ushered in a new era, and made available, in street-wear creations, what seemed destined to be for the pleasures of the imagination only. Issey Miyake explores this new approach to clothing, in which imagination and comfort go hand in hand, with the most innovative fashion technology. He calls himself a clothing designer, but his work celebrates a sensibility that perceives form, function and beauty as one.
