Note: Minor signs of wear.
Miyake's clothes are a revelation and a declaration of independence for the body. His designs challenge so many traditional expectations and break so many rules that they need different sets of standards to be understood or even worn.
His lines, shapes, colours and fabrics, the unstructured and unstrictured social attitudes implicit in both the making of his garments and the wearing of Miyake clothes are, altogether, something rather more than an alternative form of dressing.
And this is an interesting article entitled 'Changing Clothes: Issey Miyake' which dug deeply into his approach to creation.
We love his free spirit, his implacable experimentation and perpetual reinvention of his own work.
