Fashion & Runway



“I don’t have to tell you things aren’t good.

Everybody knows things aren’t good.

We sit here watching our Idiot box while some Anchorman tells us…

… just leave us alone.”

Pureness as a conscious synthesis, the intentional removal of what exceeds. ​
It is subtraction, not absence.

When having reached their highest level, emotions find ease. ​
Clarity arises from a new consciousness. Nowness takes shape. ​

“…I’m a human being, my life has value.”

Issey Miyake

He was a revolutionary Japanese fashion designer… best known for his innovative style.”

Issey Miyake

XL Edition of 1,000

Hardcover in a book bag, designed by Issey Miyake, 36 x 36 cm, 8.78 kg, 514 pages

£ 750.00

Multilingual Edition: English, Japanese

This limited Collector’s Edition offers a definitive history of Issey Miyake design. Initiated and conceived by Midori Kitamura, the monograph traces Miyake’s material and technical innovations since the earliest days of his career, including the Body Series of the 1980s and such practical, everyday designs as Pleats Please pieces.

Lyrical Life-Wear

The ultimate Issey Miyake monograph

In 1983, Japanese designer Issey Miyake told The New Yorker that he aspired “to forge ahead, to break the mold.” With the boundary-defying fashion lines that followed, he not only broke molds, but recast clothing altogether.

Presented in an original MIYAKE-designed book bag, the book traces Miyake’s texture-driven originality from the earliest days of his career, when he first expressed his commitment to clothing as a field for enduring design rather than changing fashions.

“Stunning photographs by Yuriko Takagi of Miyake’s

groundbreaking designs — including his handkerchief

dress and origami pleats — shot among sublime

natural landscapes.”
