About the publication

More a designer or maker of clothes than a fashion designer, Issey Miyake is above all the author of unparalleled creations. A true precursor and pioneer of “mixed cultures,” he launched a new era of fashion in the 1970s, bringing within everyone’s reach a clothing language destined to tickle the imagination.
Published by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain on the occasion of the Issey Miyake Making Things exhibition in 1998, this catalog offers a striking vision of Issey Miyake’s creations. It proposes an exceptional number of documents on the clothes, cuts, materials, techniques, and fundamental thought processes put into play by this inventor of fashion.
