A special exhibition on the new project “TADANORI YOKOO ISSEY MIYAKE”
Tadanori Yokoo is an artist whose constant embrace of change has made him a driver of our time.
A new project; “TADANORI YOKOO ISSEY MIYAKE” created by Yoshiyuki Miyamae and his team launched this fall, utilizes the A-POC concept together with the overflowing energy of Mr. Yokoo’s works, to pursue the further potential of clothing.
A-POC is a distinctive ISSEY MIYAKE concept of manufacturing things through a unique process which, through an instruction given to each thread in the initial programming stage, completes a design whilst the fabric is created from the thread. The first outcome are blousons in which the latest technology is applied to reconstruct eight of Mr. Yokoo’s iconic works on the back, giving the joy of looking at paintings with the fun of wearing clothes.
We hope our visitors will enjoy the world of A-POC’s making things by taking a look at the movie which shows the history of A-POC, and seeing the woven fabrics which display the individual component parts that make up the blouson.
