Pleats Please Ikko Tanaka

The series was launched in 2016 as an expression of Issey Miyake’s respect for Tanaka’s works and gratitude for all that they have inspired. Ikko Tanaka is a renowned graphic designer from Japan.

By carefully selecting materials suitable for each work and faithfully replicating the motifs and colors, we express the worldview of Tanaka’s works as clothing, and continue to make pieces that highlight the inherent happiness and liveliness of the wearer.

Tanaka was relentless in his pursuit of new value. By expressing his bold and powerful works in the form of clothing, we strive to communicate how the joys of design should be enjoyed far and wide.
IKKO TANAKA ISSEY MIYAKE is the embodiment of Issey Miyake’s everlasting thoughts such as these.
