(BBC-US)   Iconic fashion designer Issey Miyake passes at 84. You'd wear a black turtleneck in mourning, except that if you're his fan you're already wearing one   (bbc.com) divider line

Gave all of my turtlenecks to Goodwill. Does a mock turtleneck still respect the dead?

Issey Miyake Pour Homme cologne is awesome. It's not common, and makes people lean in to get a whiff of it.

The small bottle was $80. It lasted about 3 years.

Pretty much this. An ex gf got me a bottle for my birthday many years ago and its one of the 3 scents I can wear without getting an instant migraine (Hugo Boss and Acqua di Geo are the other 2)

Miyake was asked by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs to design his iconic turtle neck jumpers and reportedly made 100 of them, at $175 each.

What do you want to bet he sold that douchebag re-labeled standard Chinese-made generic turtlenecks.

I mean... seriously.  It's a goddamn turtleneck.  What's to "design"?

Yeah, that's where I know him from. Still use that scent today and still get complements about it. Very underrated cologne.

I've been using Issey Miyake Summer Scent for a very long time 2005 maybe? Don't love the new, current scents. Currently using Bois Arctic & the latest Summer Scent - not the same as the "old scents". I like citrus based.

Yuzu & Oceanic Expedition were my fav's & was buying them from Amazon/fragrance sites until recently even though they were "old". Not many left now regardless of where you look.

Lots of women would ask what the scent was but I never told them  😝

Loved the unique scent!

It's too damn hot to wear a turtleneck, so I'm sitting here naked in his honor.

That author uses "iconic" too much.
