Refer to the main aspects in bold, and down left, to the values that no longer exist (amusement, showmanship, artistic mood)
First about present and then past.Again talk about the aspects in bold. trendition: trends+tradition use of traditional elements according to tremd forecasting. The brand must lose this element and go back to tradition.The company should also lose the pragmatic value and replace it with art and imagination within architexture.Reintroduce the brand’s initial values of showmanship, amusement and joy of lifeSimplify it’s complicated conceptsAdd aisthis, which means emotion.Add I(eye)ndividuality it means ego and eyebeautysence
At the moment, Miyake is considered in the area of Thought. He is ‘The architect’, a type of ‘Ruler’, like Zeus. Not an agressive one but rather a silent power. An additional previously neglected emotional element would result in a movement towards Apollo.Apollo is the god of the sun, which gives him characteristics such as handsomeness, happiness, optimism and a fiery temper. Heis also known as the god of oracles (Delphus Oracle), music and poetry. Besides his artistic skills he is also known as the god of moral order and logic. Inspired by his characteristic, the brand should keep its rational and ethical side, but also add some new values such as joy of life, amusement, beauty, aisthisis and ‘poetry’in order to stimulate emotions.

Freedom was to become the studio catchwordMiyake’s A-POC concept garments are installed brilliantly as uncut lengths of fabric perforated and worn by a group of mannequins.Emotionally fulfill
Past: He doesn’t make fashion, he makes clothes that combine non-traditional materials and futuristic techniques with traditional Japanese fabrics to create an artistic interpretation of his country's culture and costumes across the ages.Present: this is done through experimentation with fabric/material to develop both fanatic element and practical “clothe for real life.” “Living clothe” designed for action with pronounced simplicity.
Red: FUTURE recommendationsConcept stores should be increased!!!Flagships: Paris 1979, New York 1987, London 1989 , add more in more cities.
