The timepiece pays homage to Miyake’s designs with a ridged polyurethane strap and stripes on the face that catch the light in different directions.
Hours are marked with subtly alternating brushed and polished segments round the rim of the stainless-steel case.
It's fastened with a brushed stainless-steel buckle and is suitable as either a man's watch or a woman's watch.
When designing the watch, Morrison used Irving Penn’s iconic 1994 photographs of Miyake’s collection as a starting point. "I visited the 21-21 Design Site Exhibition of Penn's photos for Miyake and was overwhelmed by how Penn managed to capture the spirit of Miyake's clothes in his photos," said Morrison. "I decided to do my best to capture some of that spirit for this new watch."
Based close to Dezeen's offices in east London, Jasper Morrison is one of the most celebrated British designers. He's famed for his "Super Normal" approach to product design, sensitively paring back objects to their essentials.
