It’s hard to enjoy the collection of yoshiyuki miyamae for issey miyake s/s 2015 without remembering about the origami pleats that thirty years ago fascinated the industry due to the passionate mixture of textile technology and tradition, and to the multiple connections of its design starting with the knowledge of the human body.
Since then, the pleated polyester became, among his many contributions, an irrevocable sign of miyake’s spirit. Three decades later, the evolution towards new forms of design and production flowed into this vapor technique that entrusts textured fabric to the maximum relief and minimum density. Its well- rounded volumes are as right as white paper colour, protagonist of the range of ochers, pale yellow, and a subtle stroke of blue. Among the soft curves and the smooth chromaticism, certain checked print sparkles intensely. An extraordinary collection of extensions and connections in the manner of Miyake.
