Spring-Summer 2015 – The S/S15 by Issey Miyake looks like he went into an Impressionist painting to steal some nineteenth-century clothes and then translated them with a bit of japanese taste and contemporary attitude. In this way the collection become an excellent synthesis between Past and Present (or even Future). Also the background of the catwalk is built in order to communicate that past/present hybrid: the music come through magnetism from white balloons attached to magnetic tapes, using low tech materials to create alternative music players.
The colour palette is broad and combines minimal solid blocks of pure colours with geometric lively prints.
Miyake made a collection based on soft and organic shapes, manipulating the female anatomy of the body through the garments and creating unexpected silhouettes. Fabrics are carefully worked transforming the textiles in papier mâché looking sculptures.
