Uniform For Tech Revolution
Ever wonder how Steve Jobs got his iconic black turtleneck look with jeans?
It was from none other than Issey Misyake, who designed Job’s famous attire that lead to a new revolution in the computer industry with Apple’s personal computer, Macintosh in 1984.
Steve Jobs walked into Sony one day, and was so impressed by the work jackets worn by employees that were designed by Misyake, that he made a failed attempt at getting his employees to wear what Jobs wore each day, but the look never wore off on Steve, wearing it to his dying day.
And it was today that The Verge reported that Issey Misyake, the designer of Steve Jobs attire, plus the man famous for two-dimensional flatness of garments brought together by clothing, art, and technology, died on August 5 at the age of 84.
