Issey Miyake – our fave obsession. The fragrances are fresh, pure and one of a kind. So here’s everything you need to know about the brand, fashion, history and fragrances…
Issey Miyake is born in Hiroshima, Japan.
He studies graphic design at University in Tokyo, where he graduates, then moves to Paris. Miyake trains at an haute couture fashion house, before taking an apprenticeship at Givenchy.
Issey Miyake returns to Japan and opens the Miyake Design Studio, making Japanese fashion.
He shows his first collection in New York. Issey Miyake loves experimenting and exploring with fashion – he makes clothes out of plastic, paper and even woven grass!
The first Issey Miyake store opens in Tokyo.
Of course, the men get a little jealous, so Issey Miyake creates L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme, which smells of mandarin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mmm!
Cauliflower, a fashion collection of one-size-fits-all T-shirts, launches, inspired by mojitos from Cuba.
Issey Miyake Nuit d’Issey for him arrives. It’s a fresh and woody blend of grapefruit, spices and tonka bean, giving an instant energy boost.
Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pure. Enough said. The mix of orange blossom, jasmine and rose is to die for. We love.
Issey Miyake presents his A/W17 collection in Paris. The show, titled Chromatic Fantasia is full of inspiration from the Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights), through woven colours and materials.
Happy summer! Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Summer (for her) leaves women everywhere smelling of lychee, passion fruit and guava, while Pour Homme Summer (for him) oozes grapefruit and pineapple. How tropical!
