New Book: Where Did Issey Come From? The Work Of Issey Miyake

Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake was born in Hiroshima and studied graphic design at the Tama Art University in Tokyo, graduating in 1964. Following that, he spent time in Paris and New York City before returning to Tokyo in 1970, where he founded the Miyake Design Studio, a high-end producer of women’s fashion. Today he has become the kind of person who makes one wonder, “What kind of place could he possibly come from?” His creative energy seems like something from science fiction, perhaps even extraterrestrial. Part biography, part monograph, this volume dives into Miyake’s extraordinary world of design, tracing his roots through the years.

In this book, essays by Koike, who has known Miyake since school days and has observed Miyake’s activities since then, wittily describes Miyake’s outstanding achievements and creations in the context of the time background. Written from Koike’s unique point of view as a creator herself underpinning the creative culture of the same generation, this can be enjoyed as an interesting documentary of the times.

The book is out now and can be shopped here.
