ISSEY MIYAKE: AUTUMN WINTER 2016
IMAGE VIDEO

The image video of the AUTUMN WINTER 2016 collection has been released.

BEYOND is this season's theme. Taking the vast universe as inspiration, the aim is to put forth the beauty that can be achieved with just “a piece of cloth,” using the "Baked Stretch" and the “3D Steam Stretch” techniques. London-based photographer Jacob Sutton directed the image video. Shot with a total of seven cameras, consisting of six regular cameras and one slow-motion camera, the image video presents optical pleats, which also appear in the collection, with powerful optical illusion like effects.

ISSEY MIYAKE : CONCEPT

Issey Miyake debuted his first collection in New York in 1971 and began participating in Paris Fashion Week from 1973. His unique concept of clothing as “A Piece Of Cloth” was widely acclaimed throughout the world from the very beginning. An inexhaustible explorer, he has continued to open up new horizons for making clothes through research, experimentation and development while reimagining the relationship between the human body and clothing.
With a resolute determination of moving ever forward, Miyake has brought forth several epoch-making outcomes, including original pleated pieces from 1989, which would later develop into PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE, and the basic idea and process of A-POC in 1997, this time in collaboration with Dai Fujiwara, which would soon evolve into a design solution called A-POC INSIDE which was incorporated into the ISSEY MIYAKE collections as well as in all other brands owned by the ISSEY MIYAKE group.

Placing a high value on fostering various human resources and innovative technologies in the industry since the foundation of the brand, Miyake's spirit of making things has been passed on to a new generation of designers, past and present.
It is Yoshiyuki Miyamae and his team of designers at the helm of the ISSEY MIYAKE Women's collection since the Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.

They are taking on further challenges with fresh eyes and new ideas, while combining the traditional techniques of Japan with new technologies.
