AUTUMN WINTER 2017 Collection
ISSEY MIYAKE presented its AUTUMN WINTER 2017 Collection at Salons de l'Hôtel de Ville, Paris on March 3 (Fri).
This collection Chromatic Fantasia was inspired by the spectacular beauty of the Aurora Bordealis, expressed through various materials and colors.
The collection will appear in shops in early August, 2017.
A series inspired by the spectacular beauty of the Aurora Borealis. Raw wool from Shetland sheep, born and bred under the Northern Lights, is dyed in five colors and combined into a single thread to create a linear and voluminous coat, woven in the color of the auroras. This group, whose fabric changes color depending on the angle it is viewed from, is finished in a graceful texture, with Ultrasuede strips woven into it. A phenomenon born from a combination of various materials and colors envelops the body.
PLASMA x Baked Stretch
Baked Stretch is a technique where by a special glue is printed on the fabric and baked with heat to create pleats. Overlapping wave and line patterns create an optical effect that expresses the powerful energy of electric plasma.
TRIBAL PATTERN x Steam Stretch
Expanding on Steam Stretch, a technique by which creases are woven into A Piece Of Cloth using heat reactive thread which shrinks when steam is applied to the garment - we have made it possible to create streamlined pleats from a square piece of cloth. The form of three-dimensional clothing is created from this simple structure. This season, we have further pursued lightness in Steam Stretch, layering colors that release an aurora-like shimmer.
