【ISSEY MIYAKE RECORD】 ISSEY MIYAKE will launch a new range of accessories for the 2015 holiday season. Made from textiles with colors inspired by photographs of quintessential everyday scenes in some of world's most distinctive cities—Tokyo, Paris, London, and New York—these accessories are not only a statement of chromatic beauty but are also imbued with memories of daily life in each of these cities. ISSEY MIYAKE will also launch a special RECORD themed website, where visitors can enjoy a virtual trip to each of these cities through original music and video footage, overlaid with typical everyday sounds from each metropolis.
