Eiko Ishioka textile designs for Issey Miyake, 1971
Issey called me from New York the day of the Collections. He thanked me, saying the show had been a huge success, the models were great, and that New Yorkers had warmly welcomed the work. A few hours later I received another call from him, in which he told me that Bloomingdale’s had put up a window display of the dresses, only to take them down immediately. A customer had complained that the prints were vulgar and indecent. Issey and I both were disillusioned by this experience. We were shocked by the conservatism of the city that for us represented all that was new and advanced. - Eiko By Eiko

His Airmail collection appropriates the actual materials of global communication to create a streamlined wardrobe for the future.
