Tadanori Yokoo x Issey Miyake’s APOC Jackets

For years, the two remarkable Japanese artists closely worked together. Back in the 70’s Yokoo has been designing invitations for several Paris fashion shows of Miyake. At a golden age, both artists are still keen on their creativity. One of their latest works highlights a collection of blousons that translate eight of Yokoo’s paintings. With the help of Miyake Design Studio using A-POC project (A Piece of Cloth)–using computer technology to create clothing from a single piece of thread. This actually became the brand’s trademark manufacturing process that originated in 1998. 

The works being featured include Yokoo’s series of colorful retro-themed pieces like A man yelling: “Tarzan is coming”; A young man shaving “Razor”; A half-dressed woman “, Mona Lina”; and several more. Each work is printed on reversible jackets with changing hues of sleeves and lining.  

Miyake and Yokoo’s ingenuity created a more exciting avenue for each artists’ medium of art. Yokoo particularly was amazed how the project connected art and fashion with urban living. The two-dimensional paintings were transformed into three-dimensional clothing. It somehow augmented physicality and have been modified into art that flows in an urban setting.
