1980s Issey Miyake Woven Chartreuse Unitard


Created with all the dancer's sensibility of a Rudi Gernreich piece, this incredible Issey Miyake unitard would have pleased Gernreich to no end. Clever as the day is long, it is shimmering chameleon skin woven of chartreuse nylon and polyurethane so it isn't constricting or tight but just clings and drapes perfectly. With a stand-up mock turtleneck, when you get to the arced seam that cuts across the chest from under each arm, there is a hidden zipper that unzips around the entire top of the garment so with just a little opening it is a scoopneck unitard with a stylized hood. Zip it farther and you are the symbolic snake shedding its skin. Modified dolman sleeve and a loop for hooking around the foot, with a hole for the heel, this really is a conceptual dance piece along the likes of Mark Morris or Twyla Tharp and one of the most inspired pieces of vintage we have had from an extremely well-respected designer. As makeshift top and slim pants, it comes together well with nothing but a simple Hermes leather wrap skirt from the Fall 2002 collection, fastened only at the waist - merci Margiela. Alternately, if you have the balls, you could wear it with just a long Richard Tyler black velvet robe coat, complete with braided silk belt. Made in Japan, it is an Issey medium, which fits a modern 8 or small 10 and is in excellent condition. $575.00

You are most welcome! ...

For the photographer, no it isn't Penn ...
I have been looking for the photographer, looking at the
credits and couldn't find it, but then this stared in my face! ...

And if I'm not wrong, as in Tyen, Dior's creative director since 1979 ...
But I'm not hundred percent sure! ...

mirra, thanks for posting this images. i wished i would have saved all those first view images to my computer while i had the chance.

on a separate note, i just bought A magazine curated by jun takahashi at the cooper hewitt musuem. i was tempted to buy the comme des garcons book, but it was expensive, and consisted mostly of quotes from admirers and big grainy pictures of past collections.

Tyen

(1953). Vietnamese photographer and specialist in cosmetics. Born in Hanoi. He moved to Paris while still very young, where he attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts, attending courses in interior decoration. But before he could finish his studies, he was summoned by Max Factor to work on the creation of the colors of stage make-up for the Paris Opéra. It was there that Tyen learned the importance of lighting and of the use of make-up. Working in the theater, he also met many photographers, who introduced him into the world of fashion publishing. He worked with Vogue France and Vogue America. Since 1980, he has been the creative director of cosmetic products of Maison Dior. Since 1985 he has been devoting himself chiefly to photography, doing campaigns for Versace, Lacroix, Montana, Valentino, Ferré.
