KURA Exhibition “WHIRLWIND”

ISSEY MIYAKE MEN’s season theme for AUTUMN WINTER 2019 collection is "Feeling the Wind". Drawing inspirations from wind that is at times a breeze and at times a storm, but always powerful and free, this collection is an expression of the different kinds of wind, featuring clothes with fingers that sway in the wind and with stripes inspired by the speed of the wind.

This exhibition introduces the “WHIRLWIND” series from the collection: a bold print that expresses the violent swirls of the wind, represented by brush stokes first drawn on paper and then pieced together digitally. Also as an iteration of the print, a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth called furoshiki is made for the exhibition by craftspeople of traditional silkscreen printing in Kyoto.

This exhibition presents the furoshiki and the tools used for the printing as well as the original drawings of the print, revealing the creative process of how  "WHIRLWIND” came together.
