Issey Miyake AW1996 Tactical Vest


Issey Miyake exists as a designer in the most literal interpretation of the word. His clothes do not exist to put forth a narrative as those of Ann or Raf do, but rather to display marvels of technical skill and innovation. His career has been propelled by a desire to explore fabric and construction techniques, and how they interact with their wearer’s body. In recent years, Miyake has completely disassociated himself from the label, choosing to strictly to work on developing new fabrics. His scientific approach to expression of beauty has found him many vaunted kindred spirits, including Steve Jobs, whom he designed his iconic black turtlenecks for.

The tactical cargo vest is unquestionably among his most legendary creations. Futuristic and militant in design, yet surprisingly utilitarian in function. It’s made of a sturdy, waterproof nylon, with thick zippers and a hidden hood in back. It has numerous pockets on the inside and out. Features numerous cargo pockets and a large back pouch.
