From the beginning I thought about working with the body in movement, the space between the body and clothes. I wanted the clothes to move when people moved. The clothes are also for people to dance or laugh.
Issey Miyake   Category:

I have worked with several dance companies.
Issey Miyake   Category:

I sent 200, 300 of the clothes that I had made, and the dancers chose what they liked.

I started to work with cotton fabrics. I used cotton because it's easy to work with, to wash, to take care of, to wear if it's warm or cold. It's great. That was the start.
Issey Miyake   Category:

I very much like dance and dancers.
Issey Miyake   Category:

Many people will say, well, clothes should be worn; but I think people can look at them in public, like seeing a film. I think museum exhibitions are very important.
Issey Miyake   Category:

Of course there are many ways we can reuse something. We can dye it. We can cut it. We can change the buttons. Those are other ways to make it alive. But this is a new step to use anything - hats, socks, shirts. It's the first step in the process.
Issey Miyake   Category:

One of my assistants found this old German machine. It was originally used to make underwear. Like Chanel, who started with underwear fabric - jerseys - we used the machine that made underwear to make something else.
Issey Miyake   Category:

The purpose - where I start - is the idea of use. It is not recycling, it's reuse.
Issey Miyake   Category:

To be honest, I think we should find first the possibility to make it. Research is first - if you're not interested, you never can find something. Many things happen from forgotten machines - ones that are no longer used.
Issey Miyake   Category:

We can also cut by heat - heat punch. And we also can cut by cold - extreme cold. When you cut with heat, it makes a mark. With cold, no mark. It depends on the fabric.
Issey Miyake   Category:

Well, what I'm doing is really clothing. I'm not doing sculpture.
Issey Miyake   Category:

You see it in the many bouncing clothes that are not just pleats. To make them, two or three people twist them - twist, twist, twist the pleats, sometimes three or four persons twist together and put it all in the machine to cook it.
