Creation and Technology...
ISSEY MIYAKE INC.'s basic philosophy is the continuing focus on both the importance of imagination and the development of new technology in which to make clothing.

MIYAKE DESIGN STUDIO was created by Issey Miyake in 1970. In the next year, ISSEY MIYAKE INC. was founded as a subsidiary to plan and manufacture clothes and related products for domestic and international sales.

ISSEY MIYAKE has regularly participated in Paris Fashion Week since 1973. The design concept challenges the conventional idea of garment making and strives to highlight the relationship between body and cloth.

Issey Miyake is an internationally renowned designer. Inheriting his spirit of innovative product creation with the goal of enhancing people's daily lives, Miyake staff constantly search for ways to incorporate the joy of life into the company's creations.

ISSEY MIYAKE INC. values free thinking that is unconventional - thinking that takes into consideration the spirit of creation, curiosity and love as a universal expression.
