Pieces of designer Issey Miyake's collection are displayed at the National Art Center in Tokyo, Japan, Tuesday, May 31, 2016. Although he’s behind one of the biggest fashion brands to come out of Japan, Issey Miyake detests being called a fashion designer. Maybe a designer, even a sculptor, but not of that frivolous, trend-watching, conspicuous consumption known as fashion. What he has pursued since he started in the 1970s is more timeless. His down-to-earth clothing is meant to celebrate the human body. And it’s anyone’s or everyone’s body _ any race, build, size or age. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayashi)
