Issey Miyake Opens Its First-Ever Store In Malaysia

The groundbreaking Japanese designer Issey Miyake founded Miyake Design Studio in 1970, with all of his designs firmly rooted in his concept of clothing made from a single thread of cloth. Marrying elements of eastern and western in his work, Miyake went on to be the first Japanese designer to showcase his talent in Paris.

Throughout his career, Miyake worked closely with his teams, creating new designs and supervising all collections under the various Issey Miyake labels. Continuing to produce stand-out collections that have stayed true to the founder’s roots, Issey Miyake has progressed tremendously including opening over 270 stores worldwide. The designer opened his first store in Paris in 1975 and now the brand has made its debut in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
