On March 1 (Wed), new BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE items will appear.
Moreover, on March 2 (Thu), new HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE and 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE items will also appear.
【MONTHLY COLOR MARCH】 The Monthly Color series welcomes cool blue-based colors such as ai (indigo) and asagi (light blue) that have been cultivated since ancient times in Japan. A new short gown and cropped straight pants have been added, expanding spring color styling variations.
【TAILORED LINE 2】 Inspired from the patterns and colors of kimonos depicted in ukiyo-e woodblock prints, a new jacket and pants featuring the unique bleed and waver of hand-traced stripes are out. A new no-color short jacket has been added, proposing a light jacket styling.
【SOUL】 The SOUL series featuring bold graphics that collide with vibrant colors. This series offers a capacious tote bag that can fit A3 size documents and a clutch bag with a chain for all occasions.
【SPIRAL ZIP】 The new SPIRAL ZIP series of items that change from a flat form to a three-dimensional, soft-shape items of clothing such as a dress or a jacket when the zipper attached to the single rectangular piece of fabric that makes up each item is zipped shut. The use of a zipper produces a sense of tension that differs from the drape of the fabric, creating an organic silhouette out of a simple structure.
We have released the second volume of the IKKO TANAKA ISSEY MIYAKE collection featuring motifs from the works of Ikko Tanaka, a renowned graphic designer.
Letters are at the heart of Ikko Tanaka's design. In this series they are expressed in drips, flows, and the blurred traces of ink. Buto Kaden #2, which pays homage to traditional calligraphy and Suibokuga (ink painting) and was also used as an expression in a poster, beautifully sublimates Japanese expression as modern design. It fuses the playfulness and joy of seeing traces of ink left from forceful brush strokes, synonymous with the strong and vivid world of graphic design.
【Face】Series The face motif is one of Tanaka's representative themes, making numerous appearances throughout his early to later works. This Face series, created in '90s, comprises extremely simple blocks of color. The subtle curves added to the straight lines construct faces. Coupled with colors reminiscent of Kasanenoirome (combination of colors created by the layering of garments) passed down from the Heian era of the 8th to 12th centuries, they create a highly original and bold graphic expression.
