Miyake rose to prominence in the 1970s, with his work over the years defined by technology-driven designs, bold, colorful styles and origami-like pleats – the latter of which earned him the title of 'Prince of Pleats'.
The statement issued by Issei Miyake Studio and Issei Miyake Group said that as per Miyake's wishes, there will be no funeral or memorial service.
RIP Issey Miyake. A brilliant, original mind. Lightness, form, movement, tenderness always. A language of their own that felt both simpler and more advanced than any contemporary. A genius of body, colour, motion and nature, a gift to all of us.
