Next up on the list for Designer Hæklet Project is Issey Miyake. Lad os finde ud af, hvem han er, hvis han har gjort noget med hækling og hvad hækling-elskende fashionistas sat sammen med sine designs.
About Fashion Designer Issey Miyake
Simone Werle s 50 Fashion Designers du bør vide distinctly describes the work of Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake as “origami on the body”. Miyake specializes in designs that fuse art and technology with fashion and offer adjustable options so that the wearer can be creative with how she chooses to implement the designs on her body. He uses really simple fabric shapes that can be folded and bent and re-shaped on the wearer for creative style.
In terms of his business career, Miyake opened his first studio in Tokyo in 1970, did his first show in New York the following year and showed in Paris two years after that. In the late 1980′s he revolutionized the process of pleating which gained him a lot of attention. In the late 90′s he gained attention for a collection called A-POC (A Piece of Cloth) which was a mass produced collection where the final item was actually cut out by the consumer, a new version of his idea that the woman wearing the clothes makes the style of the piece in the end. Miyake officially retired from fashion in 1997 although he reportedly continues to oversea the Issey Miyake brand. His current big endeavor is that he is one of the three directors of the 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT museum, Japan’s first design museum which opened in 2007.
Issey Miyake Crochet
Issey Miyake Spring 2010 saw some designs on the runway that were either crochet or crochet-inspired.

A 1988 udstedelse af Vogue Knitting med et maritimt tema sigende har designs i det fra Issey Miyake. Jeg antager det er en strik design, men da den nuværende hækling problemet ved Vogue Knitting er så hot lige nu jeg troede, jeg ville nævne det.

Det interessante ved Miyake tøj er, at de har meget enkel konstruktion, baseret på nemme geometriske figurer som cirkler og rektangler, og er ofte enkelt stor skår af stof foldet origami-stil til at skabe unikke udseende på kroppen. This has the potential to lend itself well to crochet so even though Miyake himself hasn’t done a lot of crochet work I think there is a ton of potential for his work to be reinvented in crochet. Here are some examples of what I think would work if re-worked in crochet:
Issey Miyake is all about voluminous shape!

This totem face knit dress would lend itself well to reinvention in amigurumi-inspired crochet, Jeg tror,.
