IKKO TANAKA ISSEY MIYAKE No.3:
me ISSEY MIYAKE / AOYAMA GALLERY
A third collection featuring works by graphic designer Ikko Tanaka has been released. This series was first launched in 2016 to express respect for Tanaka's work and gratitude for the inspiration that he has provided for ISSEY MIYAKE's own pieces.
While the series remains faithful to Tanaka's use of color, it does not merely use his works as a pattern. The aim is to create a garments with vibrant energy, whose appeal grows when they take on the three-dimensional shape that occurs during wear. The motifs for this collection were selected from three of Tanaka's series: "Gradation (font)", "Work Q" and "Rope". The focus was on simple designs with the image of "motion" that Tanaka's works exude, and how the fabric flows as the body moves.
Tanaka is constantly seeking to create forms with new value. He aims to create powerful works that will show people how design should be and how much fun design can be. IKKO TANAKA ISSEY MIYAKE is created from that unchanging approach to design.
