Issey Miyake is one of the most inventive creators of the late twentieth century. From the 1970s to the present he has searched for different ways by which an article of clothing can be defined. Miyake is first and foremost the originator of an unparalleled design, which lies at the intersection of all media, practices and approaches. It has been almost thirty years since this forerunner to the clothing of today first ushered in a new era, and made available, in street-wear creations, what seemed destined to be for the pleasures of the imagination only. Issey Miyake explores this new approach to clothing, in which imagination and comfort go hand in hand, with the most innovative fashion technology. He calls himself a clothing designer, but his work celebrates a sensibility that perceives form, function and beauty as one.

For ten years Irving Penn - one of the greatest fashion photographers of the post-war era - and Issey Miyake - probably the only designer of the century to take design into the realm of art - have shared an extraordinary collaborative relationship. 'Penn's photographs allow me to see my own designs, ' claims Miyake. This book springs from Penn's huge regard for the Japanese designer -and his recognition that the photographs depict pure, timeless and sculptural designs, designs that run counter to all the eroticism displayed in fashion. The photographs are directly connected to Penn's celebrated ethnographical studies, just as the designs reflect Miyake's interest in a global culture. The collaboration has come to fruition at the end of the century, when the boundaries between East and West, so often challenged by Miyake, are finally being discarded.

Over the past 40 years, Japanese designers have led the way in aligning fashion with art and ideology, as well as addressing identity and social politics through dress. They have demonstrated that both creative and commercial enterprise is possible in today's international fashion industry, and have refused to compromise their ideals, remaining autonomous and independent in their design, business affairs and distribution methods. The inspirational Miyake, Yamamoto and Kawakubo have gained worldwide respect and admiration and have influenced a generation of designers and artists alike. Based on twelve years of research, this book provides a richly detailed and uniquely comprehensive view of the work of these three key designers. It outlines their major contributions and the subsequent impact that their work has had upon the next generation of fashion and textile designers around the world. Designers discussed include: Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, Rei Kawakubo, Naoki Takizawa, Dai Fujiwara, Junya Watanabe, Tao Kurihara, Jun Takahashi, Yoshiki Hishinuma, Junichi Arai, Reiko Sudo & the Nuno Corporation, Makiko Minagawa, Hiroshi Matsushita, Martin Margiela, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, Walter Beirendonck, Dirk Bikkembergs, Alexander McQueen, Hussein Chalayan and Helmut Lang.

With his enthusiasm and vigor, it is impossible topredict just how far he may push himself in the future."Issey Miyake,from Tokujin Yoshioka DesignTokujin Yoshioka (b.1967) is one of the most important young Japanesedesigners working today.Yoshioka's client list includes shop design forIssey Miyake; space design for Nissan, BMW, Shiseido; exhibition design forIssey Miyake, Herm+s, Muji and Peugeot; and product design for Driade. His work ranges from constructing a chair solely out of honeycomb sheets ofpaper to transforming and re-locating a 150-year-old rice barn into hisTokyo studio.Experimenting with a sophisticated interplay of materials,shapes, freshness, and creativity, his approach continually astounds.TOKUJIN YOSHIOKA DESIGN by Ryu Niimi, and with contributing essays by PaolaAntonelli, Elisa Astori, Kozo Fujimoto, Ross Lovegrove, Ingo Maurer, IsseyMiyake and Ryu Niimi, is the first book to present the designer's entirebody of work.From his early projects and well-known designs for the IsseyMiyake shop in Tokyo, and the iconic Honey-pop chair, to his products todayfor Driade, this lush monograph combines a major a survey of his careerwith essays by contemporary designers and critics.The book includes notonly color photographs of the finished product, but sketches and snapshotsof the manufacturing process, showing the processes at work behindYoshioka's design from conception to culmination.After graduating from Kuwasawa Design School in Tokyo, Yoshioka studieddesign under Shiro Kuramata and Issey Miyake.Yoshioka created the hatsand other accessories worn in the Miyake's fashion shows as well asdesigned the boutiques' window displays.The motivation behind all of hiswork focuses on how the act of design is expressed and experienced. Technically excellent with a superb appreciation of light as a designmaterial, his designs use fiber optics, stunning light installations, andreflective-transparent materials in a way that leaves the observer with theimpression that the future has arrived.In 2000 Yoshioka established his own design studio where he produced hismost famous designs including the Honey-pop chair, a chair made completelyout of paper.Flat-packed, until it is opened out into a 3-D form, thechair is custom molded by the weight and body shape of the user. Consistent with Yoshioka's design ethic, the interaction between humanbeings and materials is central.Materials grow, alter, sculpt, and eventransform a chair into an intriguing living system.The Honey-pop chair isin the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and theVitra Design Museum, Berlin, among others. For Tokujin Yoshioka design means communicating something fascinating,surprising, joyful, and unexpected and with the release of this monographwe are now able to witness this exciting dialogue first-hand.
