Reality Lab, Issey Miyake boutique by Tokujin Yoshioka 「リアリティ・ラボ イッセイ ミヤケ 南青山/ファッションブランド」

The new brand Homme Plisse Issey Miyake was launched with the opening of REALITY LAB, a new store also by Miyake in Omotesando.

The designer behind this amazing boutique is Tokujin Yoshioka (currently holding “Crystallize” a contemporary art exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art).

The store is basically concrete walls interrupted by only two colors: green and blue and it is just breathtaking.
