Japanese powerhouse Issey Miyake sits at the churning epicenter of fashion and design. A tribute to Issey Miyake’s iconic Bao Bao bags, the leathery-soft Lucent Pouch is made from flexible polyurethane and finished with the brand’s signature vinyl geometry. There’s a reason these technical, innovative pieces have gone viral, and why they are so fiercely protected by the Issey Miyake brand. Available in very limited quantities.
The grandfather of modern design, progressive Japanese designer Issey Miyake has an infamous preoccupation with geometry and technology. Now 77, Issey Miyake is hailed by artists, designers and fashion houses as one of the most influential creatives of the century, and is perhaps most famous for his eponymous boutique perfume line and lightweight, un-creasable clothing line, ‘Pleats Please’. He’s also the man behind Steve Jobs’ black turtlenecks, the Lithuanian Olympic uniform in 1992, and most recently, the founder of his own design museum in Tokyo. Issey Miyake Bao Bao is one of many pet projects, and was established in 2000.
