The Issey Miyake pins and needles display is certainly innovative. The designer's newest stores in Tokyo feature displays that are created by needles, which are meant to highlight a particular Issey Miyake bag. The displays "are designed to show off Miyake's Bilbao bad, an unstructured little confection that doesn't hang so much as it settles into place."

The Issey Miyake pins and needles display is designed to capitalize on the bag's unique structure, or rather un-structure, and create a different shopping experience. The store's pins and needles display is a little daunting at first, but once you look at it from different perspectives, it's actually pretty cool.
