COVERAGE

Kosuke Tsumura designed the prototype of the “FINAL HOME” under the supervision of his mentor Issey Miyake in 1991, which was the title of a long coat that featured zippers running down the silhouette which sealed a series of 42 pockets. A translucent iteration of the coat stuffed with both essential objects and newspaper was first unveiled at an art gallery/fashion show in 1993. Kosuke’s concept behind this piece was that it was to be the “ultimate home” for the people left on our planet post-apocalypse. The nylon materiality of the garment would function as protection from rainy weather, the assemblage of pockets would serve as a mobile storage facility, and by stuffing the respective areas with enough trash the garment would provide warmth and comfort for those sleeping on the street. Before “Issey Miyake Studio” began producing the first Final Home ready-to-wear coats in 1994 Kosuke conducted an experiment with GQ Japan where he tested the coat by sleeping on the street for the night, which sparked the creation of the iconic instructional manual graphic.
