ISSEY MIYAKE is a Japanese fashion designer. He is known for his technology-driven clothing designs, exhibitions and fragrances such as L'eau d'Issey, which became his most well-known product.
"ISSEY MIYAKE is embarking on the ISSEY MIYAKE EYES PROJECT to showcase a new eyewear series. The essential design points are: being basic; paying attention to detail for their quality and dignity, and being loved for years to come. It is these fundamental and evident elements for making products that ISSEY MIYAKE carefully strives to establish the standard for tomorrow. And what is required to achieve it is assured skills and an accumulated experience. We are pleased to announce that a prominent Japanese eyewear manufacturer KANEKO OPTICAL identifies with our vision and has agreed to work with us on the new project. Through this collaboration, the project has evolved and we will present the “beauty of use”, bringing zest and zeal to people’s daily lives."
