Since founding his studio in 1970, Miyake’s interests have been always focused on innovative clothing, combined with modern research and development. As an example of this leitmotiv we are going to talk about Issey Miyake’s bomber jacket from his AW 96 collection.
As said in the previous paragraph, this piece was presented by Issey Miyake in his men´s A/W collection from 1996, known for its heavy military influences which translated into the creation of garments with many utilitarian features. Looking at this jacket, all the navy blue details remind us to those SWAT gear look equipments.
The jacket has an oversized fit and includes a concealable hood, numerous cargo pockets and a large back pouch that is able to fit a notebook.
Cav Empt dropped during A/W16 a vest and a jacket inspired by Issey’s work.
Robin Williams wore this iconic jacket during Flubber´s premiere.
A jacket from Issey Miyake AW 00 that is so similar was included in “The Supermodern Wardrobe” by Andrew Bolton (last post picture), a book that focuses on the work of innovative designers whose approach to supermodern clothing fuses high style and 21st-century technology. It shows clothes that are functional and adapted to the public spaces of the supermodern world.
