fashion designer issey miyake has opened a new store in kyoto’s historic district. naoto fukasawa devised a scheme that would embody a great reverence for japanese history, adopting ‘sumi’ paint colors and local architectural details to aide this effect. the first building that connects to the street contains the shop — where issey miyake offers his colorful elegant streetwear collection — which stands out against the dark wooden interior. among the items for sale are various products inspired by transitional japanese customs and styles.

the store is hosted within a renovated 132-year-old machiya (a classic wooden japanese townhouse). in the backyard, a gallery was erected,surrounded by a stone courtyard. here, one can discover traditional craftsmanship and issey miyake’s research on fashion through the various exhibitions. overall the project looks to harmonize the space and the articles of clothing, merging elements from the past and present.

naoto fukasawa‘s use of charcoal gray plaster creates a tranquil and elegant atmosphere that doesn’t belong to one place or time. the gallery is set to offer many special exhibitions — one of the first will be a collaborative exhibit between the late artist and graphic designer ikko tanaka and issey miyake. the space has become a perfect paring for this purpose; just as naoto fukasawa merges tradition and innovation through the space, so too does issey miyake merge fashion and art in the work found inside.
