Welcome to the first installment of



THE ISSEY MIYAKE MINUTE








with Issey Miyake. Hi !












As an introduction, today we will examine with the help of archeological visual documents from the 1980s era the deep influence of Miyake's designs on Damir Doma's recent collections.

In-depth analysis and side by side comparisons to follow.

Wow, I do see the similarities there.
Were these magazine covers? Or patterns to make Issey miyake clothing haha?
I love how different the editorial shots are, they've changed so much since the.

In most instances I like the sketch better than the real outfit pic next to it. Hah. A store near me will be carrying Miyake's men's ss13. Very curious to see it.

Also, been practicing sketching. Crazy how much I suck at it. frown.gif

Yeah they're patterns from vogue, mid to late 80s. That stuff is still around on ebay etc.

I'm not sure if those shots are taken from editorials actually. I kinda like 80s editorials, most of them are really corny by today standards but there are some real gems, and visually it's always refreshing ... paradoxically...

That's because you need to look past the gigantic shoulders, stirrup pants and whatnot, the sketches don't have the same vibe, they don't work for my Doma comparison (except pic 2 which has interesting details).

since the what ! i need to know how the sentence ends...

Haha! My bad laugh.gif
I meant then

Wait this is an interesting concept! Why would a designer allow for his/her clothing to be "knocked off"
Does this happen nowadays?

Edit: just checked eBay but there isn't much for men. Bill blass, Ralph Lauren etc..

I'm guessing some of the Issey stuff can be unisex? The coat second from the top and the blazer 5th from the bottom would be awesome to make. 5th from the bottom looks like the blazer damir put out in ss12

Any stockits that are now carrying Peir wu??  Loved that collection you posted.

after seeing those pics, I must say that yang li is becoming one of the most interesting designers. I can see similarity between him and cos. really like some of cos offerings, actually my favorite place to buy affordable but somewhat cool clothes.

+ + + this is just a 2 second sidebar to say how lucky we are to have sipang here + + +

Ditto Parker. Sipang, you da best.

Yang Li is really intriguing. I get the impression that you can't see how cool his stuff is just from pics. The double facing needs to be seen in real life. Wonder where I can do that. Interesting that two of the young designers I find most interesting (Li and Siki Im) reference skate culture and basketball in their work.

^ Agreed. I'm not even sure if I would wear either designer or if they would work for me but I love looking at it.
