Issey Miyake SS2002 Monster T-Shirt

Issey Miyake SS2002 Monster T-Shirt


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 top features imagery indicative of the low-budget monster movies Japan became famous for in the decades preceding it. In the bottom corner it displays the address for Miyake’s spring 2002 runway show, alongside screen printing that stretches within the inner lining of the collar.

Condition: 8.5/10. No significant flaws other than a small stain on the back left sleeve.
