Having been collaborators from 1987 – 1999, Issey Miyake and Irving Penn were able to bring out the best in each other’s work. Miyake has a supernatural ability to create pieces of clothing that transform the wearer into exotic and alluring beasts. Penn is a photographer that can tame these beasts into photographable masterpieces. Their work together was a journey into a phantasm, where human and clothing fused together into something far headier.
Design Sight in Tokyo will be putting on a brilliant show of their work together, investigating this unique relationship and the pieces produced during those years. Expect a magical leap into an alien collection of images that will make Avatar seem like child’s play. On from September 16th, 2011, to April 8, 2012.
