Issey Miyake‘s menswaer output dates back to 1976, back when the Japanese creative first launched his eponymous fashion brand, enduring multiple creative directors and even a rebranding to Issey Miyake Men in 2012. Despite the line’s renown, 2020 marks the final year of its output — Issey Miyake Inc. announced the collection’s discontinuation on July 28.

The company insists that the decision had been made prior to the coronavirus pandemic and the shuttering of Issey Miyake Men will lead to “new possibilities” in Miyake menswear. Six-year creative director Yusuke Takahashi departed Issey Miyake Men in January 2020, leaving the design team to take over for Fall/Winter 2020, the line’s final full collection.

Despite the end of Men, Issey Miyake Inc. will continue to produce the wildly popular HOMME PLISSÉ Issey Miyake menswear collection and various womenswear imprints, including mainline Miyake, PLEATS PLEASE and Haat . Miyake Inc. has not confirmed any changes in production for of the brands that it oversees, like tac:tac.
