Issey Miyake Sport Tornado Parka

Issey Miyake Sport Tornado Parka


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.

This intricate parka is made with a handsome deep-blue outer that is both ribbed and perforated. Its adjustable double zip structure allows it to take on several different shapes and silhouettes, and it can additionally be zipped all the way up to create a gimp hood. As was much of Issey's work from this era, it is cut oversized and unstructured.
