AUTUMN WINTER 2021/22 COLLECTION

ISSEY MIYAKE premiered its AUTUMN WINTER 2021/22 collection As the Way It Comes to Be online on Friday, March 5. This collection looks at the colors and shapes found in nature and grapples with them in the context of a piece of rectangular cloth, thereby bringing forward a sense of organic beauty and strength.

RISE

RISE

This series uses a fabric of a cotton-polyester blend with a soft finish. Part of the garment is woven with elastic yarn that contract when pre-washed, thereby creating an organic silhouette out of the garment's rectangular cut.

CLIFF

CLIFF

This series’ fabric is woven with two types of yarns: one for pleating and the other for non-pleating, featuring the design where one texture changes into the other. While the pleated part of the garments shows large, ripple-like curves, the non-pleated part is soft to touch with a gentle sheen, giving the garments a delicate look.

STONE

STONE

This series’ patterns inspired by stones are made by craftspeople in Kyoto using a traditional technique called suminagashi. Patterns are created by  dropping dyes on the water surface to allow them to expand freely against each other, which are then soaked up by (transferred onto) a clean cloth. The series is available in 5 styles including a shirt and a dress, finished in silhouettes that gently drape over the body, bringing out qualities of the patterns.

RAW WOOL, RAW COLOR

RAW WOOL, RAW COLOR

These two series use undyed fibers for their original colors and textures, featuring environment-friendly organic wool of natural colors and organic brown and green cottons. The wool fabric is finished in a coat with unique sleeves that fold into its square cut, and the cotton fabric is available in styles such as a jumpsuits and a suit.

SILK SHADE

SILK SHADE

The pattern of this series is inspired by an imagery of flowers glowing in the moonlight, made with the traditional dyeing technique called hogushigasuri*. The design of the series uses the textile in its full length, where the garments can lay flat and fold into rectangular shapes but at the same time look three-dimensional when worn on the body.

  • A technique that creates patterns by removing weft (crosswise threads) from a piece of loosely woven textile that has patterns printed on it and re-weaving it, during the process of which the warp (vertical threads) slightly shifts, thereby making the shapes of the original patterns blur for a softer look.
MONOCHROME PLANET

MONOCHROME PLANET

This hand-pleated series features garments in circular forms with openings and concentric pleats, available in three colors: light gray, dark gray, and black. Each garment can fold into compact sizes along the pleated lines, which transform from a flat piece into a curved, three-dimensional form.
