Irving Penn & Issey Miyake Exhibition

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT in Tokyo (Japan) announces a unique exhibition: ‘Irving Penn and Issey Miyake: Visual Dialogue’, celebrating the collaborative work of legendary photographer Irving Penn and renowned designer Issey Miyake.

Taking place from 16th September 2011 – 08th April 2012, the exhibition showcases some of Penn’s iconic photography of Miyake’s collections spanning 13 years from 1987 to 1999.

Issey Miyake’s first met Irving Penn in 1983 whilst on assignment for American Vogue. Their close working relationship began in 1987 and in their 13 years working together Miyake never attended a single photo session, instead trusting Penn to capture the essence of each collection.

Under the direction of Midori Kitamura, Miyake’s trusted colleague, the installation designed by architect Shigeru Ban, features both the individual and collaborative work of Irving Penn and Issey Miyake. In addition to large scale projections of collection photographs by Penn, an animated film by Pascal Roulin with original cartoons by Michael Crawford, and ISSEY MIYAKE collection posters exhibited collectively for the first time, original photographic prints made by Penn will also be on display as well as his preliminary drawings for photographing Miyake’s designs.
