About Issey Miyake
Issey Miyake doesn't believe in fashion. He doesn't believe in "gorgeous clothes." Instead, he says, what he believes in is "a human being and a piece of cloth." His first pieces were rooted in his native Japan, including revivals of traditional quilted pieces, such as the shijira-ori, made from scraps, and the sashiko. He began his work with the goal of breathing life back into Japan, which he saw "culturally obliterated" after the atomic bomb was dropped on his hometown of Hiroshima. He focused his designs on bright color, unique texture, and above all, functionality.
After studying in Paris and New York, he began to experiment with pleating, working to twist and stitch in new and innovative ways. His goal was to find a pleat style that wouldn't restrict movement and that would be easy to care for, and that gave birth to the Pleats Please line of apparel. In 1983, he told The New Yorker, "I want to find out what clothing might be.” He has experimented with clothing the customers themselves cut at their preferred length, dresses that resemble paper lanterns, and two pairs of pants sewn together so you and your imaginary friend can be literally joined at the hip. Although his brand has appeared in Vogue and Paris fashion shows every year since 1973, Miyake has always meant to appeal to a wider audience, emphasizing versatility and claiming the motto, "Clothes for everyone, not just a few.”
