Table dressing with Issey Miyake

It's definitely a good year for Issey Miyake fans. On March 16, a major exhibition of the designer's work opens at the National Art Center, Tokyo, while in April, Taschen plans to release a monumental definitive book charting his entire career.

A prelude to this visual flood of fashion and design is the Iittala × Issey Miyake Homeware Collection, which launched globally in February.
