TOKYO — In post-March 11 Japan, a new sense of values is taking hold. Behind the country’s archetypal stoicism and resilience, the shock of its biggest-ever earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis has left many seeking a closer affinity with what they hold dear, stripping away veneers of pure presentation.
It’s this kind of motivation that has steered Yoshiyuki Miyamae, newly installed at the head of women’s design at Issey Miyake, as he finalizes preparation for his runway debut on Sunday.
