In this 22nd year of Heisei, Issey Miyake was decorated with the Order of Culture. The Order was bestowed upon him directly by the Emperor, at the Imperial Palace on Culture Day, November 3rd, 2010.
The Order of Culture is Japan’s highest decoration given only to those who have made remarkable achievements in the development and improvement of science, technology or the arts.
Issey Miyake commented:
I am surprised and very honored to have been selected to receive such a prestigious acknowledgement from my country. I see this decoration as a form of encouragement to all the people with whom I work. This includes not only our young designers but also those in the textile industry: spinners, weavers, knitters and dyers all of whom are still managing to create things of beauty and quality despite very difficult economic and manufacturing conditions in the Japanese countryside. I am especially gratified by this recognition, as I feel that it speaks to their accomplishments and struggles, as well.
The sale of ‘132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE’ will start in Tokyo, Paris, New York, London and Zurich.
