Featuring the work of graphic designer Ikko Tanaka, IKKO TANAKA ISSEY MIYAKE is a project that started in 2016, with respect and appreciation to the designer, to explore and further convey the aesthetic of his creative work. This collection goes beyond representing Tanaka’s work to integrate his graphic compositions into the construction of the garments—a product of Tanaka’s graphic design and ISSEY MIYAKE’s design and making. The compelling images and elaborate use of color found in Tanaka’s work bring a sense of joy and wonder and elicit pure curiosity. This collection of IKKO TANAKA ISSEY MIYAKE embraces the timeless beauty of Tanaka’s work like every past collection, as it invigorates people in their everyday living.

The Plant series*

The flowers featured in the collection include those that bear resemblance to the lustrous peonies, as Tanaka explained, “I simply wanted to paint single, large flowers in full bloom,” and the ones on display at Narita Airport: Red and White Camellia and Purple Iris, where the latter suggests the influence of the Rinpa School.

  • Referring to Peony:B and Peony:C (1990), Graphic Design Today (1990), and Red and White Camellia and Purple Iris (1992).
