Since we were first established in 1971, ISSEY MIYAKE INC. has combined traditional Japanese materials and techniques with the latest technology to create innovative new designs.

The world is currently changing at a dizzying pace, developing into a digital society where each region retains its own unique traditions and culture but is also exposed to a variety of information that spreads around the world in the blink of an eye.
In a time like this, we as a company must have a strong sense of who we are.

We do not chase trends or bend to fit the market's needs in our designs. We believe that we need to carry out tireless research and bring the world things that have never been seen before, so that everyone will feel a thrill of excitement when they pick up a product from us. Our products must also be comfortable with quality that people can count on. We can't provide a comfortable lifestyle for many people without achieving that.
We strive every day to make all of these aims a reality.

Our commitment to these design principles has made ISSEY MIYAKE INC. a long-standing favorite for many people around the world. In recent years, we have also been laying the foundations for global expansion of our business itself.

To enter this new stage of growth as an international brand, we plan to open stores in more major cities both in Japan and overseas, so that more people can step into an environment where they can see what our brands and designs are all about.

There is no end to our mission to enrich and invigorate the day-to-day lives of people around the world. No matter what changes the times bring, everyone at ISSEY MIYAKE INC. will work together to bring the world creations that strike a chord with people.
