A-POC ABLE ISSEY MIYAKE / KYOTO

PLACEText: Amelia Ijiri

A-POC ABLE ISSEY MIYAKE / KYOTO is A-POC ABLE ISSEY MIYAKE’s new store in Kyoto, open in September 2021. Currently featured are blousons fashioned in collaboration with Tatsuo Miyajima. Miyajima’s concept of time and life, change, connection, and continuation, is expressed with a digital number 0-9 motif. Each piece is cut from a single roll of fabric; sections are divided into blocks and cut to make into a blouson.

A-POC ABLE ISSEY MIYAKE is a brand led by Yoshiyuki Miyamae, which has a concept that reflects the value of the relationship between creators and wearers, hoping it creates a dialogue. Evolving over time, A-POC created in 1998, has revolutionized the process of clothes-making:bringing out different ideas and relationships within a piece of cloth, respecting the relationship with the wearers of different professions and industries.

The machiya-style building was designed by Tokujin Yoshioka two months ago. Overhead, the sunlight opens the space to highlight the texture of this collection. A-POC continues to fuse the traditional with the innovative.
