Issey Miyake Men Fall 2018 Collection.
Yusuke Takahashi was inspired by the whirlwind of urban life for his fall collection for Issey Miyake, with which he set out to create a new work-wear combining functionality and vitality. The designer continued to experiment with fabric techniques, like stitching stretch tape into garments for a fitted design, and reversible materials. No two motifs were the same, thanks to techniques leaving results to chance. That all contributed to the novelty of the line, which was built on layered pieces, plus the juxtaposition of colors and textures. The wide variety of looks mashed together could have been jarring, but Takahashi wove it all together into a harmonic wardrobe for today’s man.

About Issey Miyake Men.
Miyake was born on April 22, 1938 in Hiroshima, Japan. He studied graphic design at the Tama Art University in Tokyo, graduating in 1964. After graduation, he worked in Paris and New York City. Returning to Tokyo in 1970, he founded the Miyake Design Studio, a high-end producer of women's fashion. In the late 1980s, he began to experiment with new methods of pleating that would allow both flexibility of movement for the wearer as well as ease of care and production. The garments are cut and sewn first, then sandwiched between layers of paper and fed into a heat press, where they are pleated. The fabric's 'memory' holds the pleats and when the garments are liberated from their paper cocoon, they are ready-to wear.This collection was launched along with the women's line from 1976, and became a brand of its own in 1978. It has been shown in the Paris Men's Collection since its AUTUMN WINTER 1985 collection. The brand's name was changed to its current name, ISSEY MIYAKE MEN, with the launch of the SPRING SUMMER 2012 collection.The ISSEY MIYAKE MEN team has been led by designer Yusuke Takahashi since the SPRING SUMMER 2014 collection. Carrying on Issey Miyake's design spirit, the team takes the core concepts of functionality and comfort and incorporates traditional techniques, creating global apparel from fresh new perspectives.
