Spring – Summer 2014
“Inspired by light illuminating the land through a break in the clouds. The collection features sharp silhouettes and hybrid textiles”, this is what Yoshiyoki Miyamae, the designer, promises for the SS 2014 Issey Miyake. It was an innovative work representing the stages of light: starlight, moonlight and sunlight.
The minimalist and graphic shapes gave an ultra modern feeling and an effortlessly chic vibe to the silhouettes. The strengh was also in the complexity of the cuts and the origami-like insipiration. Stand out is the leather skirts punched with little holes wich created the illusion of stars, dazzling! There were all shades of white on the runway punctuated by red and blue ombré which evoked the sunset. We liked the smile on models’ faces, which was unexpected and refreshing.
With this avant-garde and inventive concept, Yoshiyoki Miyamae showed once more his creativity while remaining true to the style of the Japanese house.
