VALENTINO SPRING/SUMMER 2023
THE UNBOXING VALENTINO COLLECTION
“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.”

XL Edition of 1,000
Hardcover in a book bag, designed by Issey Miyake, 36 x 36 cm, 8.78 kg, 514 pages
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.
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
