Bodice
Autumn/Winter 1980
Issey Miyake 
Beautiful woman’s torso becomes a bodice. This super realistic expression was realized by taking a cast of a body with the help of a mannequin manufacturer. Although it covers the body, at the same time it makes us conscious of the body’s existence, and it even stirs a feeling of voluptuousness engendered by the contrast between the inorganic plastic and the suppleness of the wearer’s body. This is one of Miyake’s best-known works. 
This work was shown at the finale of the autumn/winter Paris collection in 1980, marking the start of the body-conscious fashion at that era. Miyake introduced a series of works including a bustier made of rattan and vinyl in 1982 and his “Silicon Body” in 1985. These works were the main exhibits in the “Issey Miyake Bodyworks” exhibition, which toured worldwide from 1983 to 1985.

The fact that in the second opening Mamoru gets to go from standing in the front line with Sailor Moon to being shoved as far back into the background as possible to make room for the lesbians will never not be hilarious and beautiful.
