To produce his stunning wrist watches, Issey Miyake collaborates with industrial and product designers who share his love for clean lines, subtle elegance, and nature-inspired motifs. Miyake’s Twelve, a sleek design conceptualized by Naoto Fukasawa, forgoes numbers and other markings in favor of a 12-angled watch-face frame that indicates the hour. With three mini-dials embedded in the display, Fukasawa’s Trapezoid style is somewhat busier than the Twelve, yet keeps things relatively straightforward with easy-to-read minute markings and a plain black-and-white or bright salmon. The To, designed by Tokujin Yokiosha, tells time using three shifting concentric rings; his O style captures “the shape of water” with a clear band and an off-center watch face that appears as though it is floating in a clear puddle. With these and other designs, Miyake’s avant-garde timepiece collection — like his shoes, bags, perfumes, and clothing — represents the perfect balance of functionality and artistry.

Nature meets technology in Japanese designer Issey Miyake's distinctive, sculptural designs. Drawing inspiration from both technology and nature, every Miyake collection is imaginative, innovative and as artistic as it is technical. Challenging conventional garment-making ideas and developing new methods and fabrics, Miyake strives to highlight the relationship between the body and the cloth. The result is highly architectural designs that strike a balance between strong and soft, flowing and structural, traditional and avant-garde.
