1982-4 Issey Miyake Ensemble

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This phenomenal ensemble was purchased in Italy from the estate of a prominent art dealer from the early 1980s. She adored Issey and we are currently listing numerous pieces from her important collection. Several of the pieces we are listing are featured in the iconic Irving Penn books on his work. This rare ensemble is not, and thus this is a rare opportunity to own an undocumented piece of historic fashion. Miyake has always pushed himself as a designer to question what is a piece of clothing. It is his work from the early 1980s which invented the idea of soft loose sculptural clothing we know today.
