A fifth collection featuring works by graphic designer Ikko Tanaka has been released. 

 

IKKO TANAKA ISSEY MIYAKE was launched in 2016 as an expression of Issey Miyake’s respect for Tanaka’s works and gratitude for all that they have inspired. 

 

By carefully selecting materials suitable for each work and faithfully replicating the motifs and colors, we express the worldview of Tanaka’s works as clothing, and continue to make pieces that highlight the inherent happiness and liveliness of the wearer.

The motifs this time were selected from the Botanical Garden Series. Trying to convey through clothing the free feeling of enjoyment of Tanaka’s works, expressing various imaginative plants, we created coats and dresses not only using pleated material, but also cotton, to express a silhouette that makes the wearer seem as if they were wearing the wind.

 

Tanaka was relentless in his pursuit of new value. By expressing his bold and powerful works in the form of clothing, we strive to communicate how the joys of design should be enjoyed far and wide.

IKKO TANAKA ISSEY MIYAKE is the embodiment of Issey Miyake’s everlasting thoughts such as these.
