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 8 of Mr. Yokoo’s iconic works on the back, giving both 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 production process movie, and seeing the woven fabrics which display the individual component parts that make up the blouson.
