SUMMER 2018 Artist Talk

SUMMER 2018 Artist Talk

Each year, ISSEY MIYAKE PARFUMS brings various guest artists on board to create new visuals with summery designs. This summer's visuals center on the themes of “typography” and “nature”, and were designed in a collaboration between two young French designers. The two artists will come to Japan to work on the summer fragrances and brought the world of the fragrances to life in a new 3D space in Ginza store windows.

 

In their upcoming talk, the artists will tell you about the background of their latest creation, in which they created visuals full of life from a medium - fragrance - that has no shape. Based in Paris and Los Angeles respectively, the two spirited artists will share their perspectives, with journalist Noriko Kawakami as the coordinator.
