    19 July 2019

    We are pleased to announce that Tokujin Yoshioka designed the HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE's first flagship store newly opened in Minami-Aoyama, Tokyo.

    You can watch the process of the pleats being created in the workshop where the pleating machine sits. In this space that depicts the contrast between the texture steadily being produced and the futuristic machine, we find the reflection of making things of ISSEY MIYAKE, which is a fusion of experimental technology and handcraft.

  • The TOKYO 2020 Olympic Torch

    21 March 2019

    − Design of the Olympic flame −

    I designed the TOKYO 2020 Olympic Torch in the wishes for peace and healing of hearts in the disaster-hit area.

    The cherry blossom emblems I drew with children in the recovering area inspired me. Those cherry blossoms were all vibrant, as if they symbolize the spirit of the people trying to overcome and restart from the disaster. I aimed to convey this power to the world through my design.

    What I designed is not merely the form of the TOKYO 2020 Olympic Torch, but the form of Olympic flame itself. The five flames surrounded by the petals become one Olympic flame to give hope to all the people in the world to live in peace.

    In 2020, the Olympic flame will traverse throughout Japan like cherry blossoms blooming, and lights our way to hope.
