Issey Miyake by Kazuko Koike( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1983, Japanese designer Issey Miyake told The New Yorker that he aspired "to forge ahead, to break the mold." With the boundary-defying fashion lines that followed, he not only broke molds, but recast clothing altogether. With a unique fusion of poetry and practicality, his creations blur the boundaries between tradition, modern technology, and everyday function. This definitive history of Miyake's clothes coincides with a major exhibition at The National Art Center, Tokyo to offer expert insight into the designer's vision and daring. Initiated and conceived by Midori Kitamura, the book looks at the texture-driven originality of Miyake's materials and techniques from the very earliest days of his career, before he had even established the Miyake Design Studio. Drawing on more than 40 years of collaborative work with Miyake, Kitamura creates an encyclopedic reference of his material and technical innovations through the clothes based on A Piece of Cloth concept, Body Series of the 1980s, Miyake Pleats series, and such practical, everyday designs as Pleats Please pieces. Stunning photographs from Miyake's contemporary Yuriko Takagi capture his clothes in their particular quotidian originality, including a breathtaking shoot in Iceland. In her far-reaching essay, meanwhile, leading cultural figure Kazuko Koike offers both a complete chronology of Miyake’s work, and an unprecedented personal profile, looking at the ambition and inspirations that have driven his repertoire from tender teenage years"--Publisher's description

Issey Miyake is regarded as a leading fashion designer. He explores the relationship between body and clothing, sculpting the human frame with new modern day fabrics, creating his trademark dynamic shapes and forms. A-POC (A Piece of Cloth) is the result of the collaboration between Miyake and Dai Fujiwara and their quest to revolutionize the process of clothing production. Together they have completely re-thought the process, from the use of new generation raw materials, to the machines used, to the fitting of the wearer. The "tubes" of fabric produced in the A-POC factories, hold complete clothing ensembles waiting to be cut out, thus literally allowing the fabric to be cut and fitted straight on to the wearer. A new concept of clothing manufacture for the fashion industry in the 21st Century
