Issey Miyake SS15.

Tuileries, Paris Fashion Week
—SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE IMAGES—

You can certainly leave it to Issey Miyake to push the creative limits on what ready-to-wear constitutes to its fullest limit. Thing is, the label’s runway shows follow a similar philosophy. Marrying this kind of collection with presentations that are both visually and sonically mesmorising is a real treat in person. For the upcoming spring/summer season, designer Yoshiyuki Miyamae has updated the steam-stretched technique to create three-dimensional cubes into the fabric for pieces you want to reach out and touch. The white/blue combination looks remind of bourgeoise women stepping off an ocean-liner at port in Monaco, fresh from a tour of the Mediterranean at Easter; the yellow looks are the type of pieces they’d proudly collect and bring back from the far east. Absolutely nothing on the runway missed as brilliance strutted in slow, pleasant continuity. Issey Miyake has quickly turned into one of my very few must-see shows of the fashion week season, and if Miyamae can continue to imagine up worlds in which late-century Europe and Asia meet on the modern streets on Paris, I might steal candy from babies to witness it.
