Issey Miyake / Taschen Book Launch Party
Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm a book enthusiast. Collecting artists monographs has been an ongoing obsession of mine for years. So I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived to cover an event for the Tribeca Issey Miyake store. The event turned out to be an Issey Miyake book launch.
The Taschen tome, weighing in over eight pounds, is considered the definitive history of Issey Miyake clothes, and spans over 40 years of work. It truly is a beautiful book and it's release coincides with a major exhibition at The National Art Center in Tokyo.
It was a well attended and well received affair.
