I said it before-he needs to do athletic wear!

Actually , Travolta , Pleats Please and APOC are the only two lines that Issey himself designs .

Point of interest :-

The Issey line that is sold in plastic tubes is ' Me Issey Miyake ' .

BTW there's not an Antwerp Six thread , per se , but Ann Dem , Dries , and the others have numerous threads .

Monsieur Faust is the recognised expert here .

and i would think that the antwerp six would be part of this discussion since they have all pretty much cited the japanese avant-garde as an influence...

they are the next generation of the avant-garde...

ok...start a new thread for an in-depth analysis of belgian design...
stick to how they were influenced by the japanese avant-garde aesthetic for this thread...please...or who knows where we'll wind up...we've already started talking about the whole flat thing...

thanks...

the pic is from an exhibit which i attended about 5 years ago...

Well, they were definitely sighted as an inspiration to create something different, something else than the accepted Parisian fashions. Especially Rei - she was an example of how you can create something completely rebellious and become a success. I don't have any quotes on hand, but I'll dig around in my books over the weekend.

Such good articles and info on Rei and Miyake, thank you so much:-).

I didn't know much about Miyake, except for a film by BBC about fashion in the 90s, where thet showed Miyake and his fabric experimentation.

Here are some old Comme:-)

CdG 83


Tricot 83




CdG 86




The pics come from various catalogs that Comme used to do in the 80s.
