    Default Issey Miyake - a question

    Hi all,

    I don't know if this is the right place to post, so please redirect me if needed.

    I have been scouring the internet for information on a brand called Hai Sporting Gear - a lifestyle active brand designed by Issey Miyake in the 90s. There is so little information anywhere online and I was wondering if anyone had more information about the line. Most of my information and introduction to the brand came from stumbling across one of the pieces on Grailed which completely captured my attention. I've started collecting pieces and hope to continue rounding out my collection! (If anyone has any pieces they would like to sell, hit me up!)
    But what do I know.

    Hi Danielle,

    I had a look on google.jp and found some pretty basic info. Basically HAI was launched in 1977 by the lingerie manufacturer Wacoal Holdings Corp. in collaboration with Issey Miyake Design Studio. That's why you always see his name popping up in association with any HAI piece. I'll put the only two articles that I could find mentioning the origins of the brand below:

    https://www.nytimes.com/1985/11/09/b...boutiques.html

    I hope this helps :)
