Issey Miyake AW2000 X-Ray Cargo Vest

Issey Miyake AW2000 X-Ray Cargo 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.

Issey’s legendary fall 2000 collection focused critically on the technical functionality of the garments (a simple conceptual leap for Miyake, who has dedicated much of his career to fabric work). The move proved to be quite prophetic, as he explored this landscape nearly a decade before the trend began to purvey mainstream fashion through brands like Acronym. This vest features a soft, cotton outer layer, belied by a Thinsulate lining which provides numerous hidden cargo pockets.
