Legendary fashion empire Issey Miyake recently opened a new London flagship store designed by Japanese artist and long time collaborator Tokujin Yoshioka. Formerly a bank, Yoshioka has transformed the 5,000-square-foot space into a visually striking combination of old and new, using a mix of materials and finishes that are simultaneously surprising and delightful.

Blue aluminum panels are an essential feature of the new location, lining the edges of the store and contrasting with the central concrete columns in an eye-catching burst of color. The smooth floor is composed of poured screed, and hand finished with a bespoke layer of micro-top.
