  • Presented is the magnificent 1980’s Issey Sport “Space” Full Graphic Knitted Sweater. Issey Sport, a departure from Issey Miyake’s main line, has differed the lines between avant-garde and streetwear. The dawn of Issey Sport dates back to 1977, massively accredited to the inception of Japanese designer Chisato Tsumori. Recently graduating from the noteworthy Bunka Fashion School, Tsumori eagerly gripped the Sport line, successfully marketing the Issey Miyake derivative to a select, youthful audience. Employing relaxed silhouettes and ubiquitous motifs, the sub-genre slowly became a self-distinguished phenomenon. Paving the way for high end streetwear labels of the modern age, Sport harboured and redefined social class within fashion.


    However, on occasion the Sport line debuted low quantities of sporadic garments. These pieces subtly paid homage to the avant-garde helm, Issey Miyake, whilst still maintaining the Sport aesthetic. Now rare and sought after, few designs remain intact today, such as the sweater displayed. Featuring a meticulous full print weave, the intergalactic knit displays a variety of stellar imagery. Presented in a pixelated manner, a rocket, American flag, multiple globes and shimmering stars are encapsulated beautifully atop this knitted base. A heavy weave with thick hems to pair, makes for the cozy full print sweater this garment embodies—truly a one of a kind item. Tagged and fitting as a true to size medium, the article is in pristine condition overall, with no apparent flaws whatsoever. Cease the sparse opportunity to purchase a piece of Japanese history, the magnificent 1980’s Issey Sport “Space” Full Graphic Knitted Sweater.
