SThe theme of the Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is "Wearing Light". For this collection, ISSEY MIYAKE, who has been inspired by natural light from the sun, moon and stars, etc., has teamed up with Kosei Komatsu, who has created works characterized by bird feathers that pay careful consideration to light. ISSEY MIYAKE has produced feathers from an original material and Komatsu has integrated them into a number of works such as "Weathercock" and "Chandelier". Please look forward to viewing the installations produced by these two creators that express light and lightness.

SPRING SUMMER 2014
ISSEY MIYAKE : CONCEPT
Issey Miyake debuted his first collection in New York in 1971 and began participating in Paris Fashion Week from 1973. His unique concept of clothing as A Piece Of Cloth was widely acclaimed throughout the world from the very beginning. An inexhaustible explorer, he has continued to open up new horizons for making clothes through research, experimentation and development while reimagining the relationship between the human body and clothing.
With a resolute determination of moving ever forward, Miyake has brought forth several epoch-making outcomes, including original pleated pieces from 1989, which would later develop into PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE, and the basic idea and process of A-POC in 1997, this time in collaboration with Dai Fujiwara, which would soon evolve into a design solution called A-POC INSIDE which was incorporated into the ISSEY MIYAKE collections as well as in all other brands owned by the ISSEY MIYAKE group.
Placing a high value on fostering various human resources and innovative technologies in the industry since the foundation of the brand, Miyake's spirit of making things has been passed on to a new generation of designers, past and present.
It is Yoshiyuki Miyamae and his team of designers at the helm of the ISSEY MIYAKE Women's collection since the Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.
They are taking on further challenges with fresh eyes and new ideas, while combining the traditional techniques of Japan with new technologies.
