After the sudden news of the death of Olivia Newton-John yesterdaytoday we woke up with the fateful confirmation that Issey Miyake, one of the greatest exponents of Japanese fashion in the world, died today at the age of 84.
Considered one of the most international creators of oriental fashion, Miyake managed to be a visionary of the feminine and masculine silhouette in his creations, managing to adapt the Western trends that prevailed in fashion in the eighties and ninetiesto conceptualize an own brand that was one of the most acclaimed at Paris Fashion Week in its debut.
Regarded as the king of pleats, Miyake managed to establish a strong brand among lovers of conceptual fashion, always hitting the balance of color, shape and textures that were evident in all his presentations, in which he combined both the artistic expression of painting and music, as well as dance.
Following the withdrawal of its namesake brand, it was the creative director Satoshi Kondo who took the reins of the firm since 2019in order to keep intact the DNA of a brand that, due to its joviality and expression, will always remind us of the famous founder and his optimistic vision of fashion.
