Issey Miyake brings clothes to life

Translated by

Once more, Issey Miyake has delighted its aficionados through textile research and technological prowess. For the Spring/Summer 2017 collection, showcased on Friday 30th September in Berçy, Paris, Yoshiyuki Miyamae, in charge of design for the Japanese brand since 2011, has drawn inspiration from geometric shapes to develop a multi-faceted wardrobe.

Bright-coloured trapezia and triangles stretch over floaty, bare-backed jersey cotton dresses. Bracelets are square-shaped, and one of the handbags looks like a double cocoon. Multi-coloured clog sandals seem carved out of a solid block of material… leaving the heels suspended.

Lightweight trench coats in muted hues are built as an assemblage of lozenges, recalling Miyake's famous Bao Bao handbag.

The triangle crops up again in the shapes of versatile tops, which seem to inflate on the body, of mini-handbags and hair pins stuck on the models' heads.

Long, sharp coloured stripes applied on dark dresses come alive like a shower of sparks all around the midriff. The label's traditional pleated dresses are decorated with tribal motifs this season.

Futuristic rectangular handbags change appearance as they move. Developed with the help of Sony Fashion Entertainment, these 'EBs' (electronic bags) will no doubt make a huge splash next summer!

Tunics featuring a patchwork of pleats seem to bounce with every step: they are built by means of a technique using steam to retract the material.

Thanks to this clever play of colours, pleats and geometries, the garments are in perpetual motion, as though they were alive.
