Did you know?

Issey Miyake is a fashion designer born in 1938 who founded the brand named after him. His style is considered rather technological and futuristic; besides wristwatches and men’s and women’s clothing, he also produces accessories such as the perfume line named after him. His career in the industry reaches much further than Japan. After studying at and graduating from a school of art and design in Japan, he migrated to Paris, there working for Givenchy and Guy Laroche, before moving to New York and founding his first company in 1970.

Modern style and unique fragrance

The modern and optimistic style that Issey Miyake embodies in his fashion collections is transported to his fragrances. The perfume Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey is one of his most famous creations. It was specially developed for women and uses different fine woods, combining them with rose, lily, and the very delicate lotus. The perfume has a very feminine signature and a friendly, open-hearted effect. Both are qualities of Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey, which the designer wanted to maintain in all of his creations as a reaction to the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima - his birthplace.

Inspired by sorrow, strengthened by creativity

Miyake, who was 7 years old at the time, has frequently cited this devastation as his inspiration. As a response, he wanted to create something completely positive and beautiful with Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme. He succeeded in doing this, not just with Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme but also with its women’s counterpart.
