On March 2018, Issey Miyake Kyoto store open in the evolving historic city of Kyoto. Japanese traditional “Machiya” (townhouse) and ISSEY MIYAKE’s spirit of making things are harmonized together in the space designed by Naoto Fukasawa.

In the “KURA” (storehouse) gallery behind the two-storied main house, a new communication space will be born to connect ISSEY MIYAKE’s making things with cultures and people of the East-West, centering Kyoto. “KURA” will deliver diverse trials, keeping with the changing hues of seasons. During the opening period, a special exhibition of the 3rd series of “IKKO TANAKA ISSEY MIYAKE” will be held.

Space Design
A new “space” is born, where Kyoto’s historic Machiya and ISSEY MIYAKE’s spirit of making things are beautifully coordinated. The charcoal gray plaster creates a tranquil and elegant atmosphere, where the beauty of tradition and innovation meet and become one. The store, a renovated 132-year-old Machiya, holds a gallery in the backyard, where you can discover the Japanese traditional craftsmanship and ISSEY MIYAKE’s research on clothes through various exhibitions.
