SPRING SUMMER 2022 COLLECTION

The ISSEY MIYAKE SPRING SUMMER 2022 collection A Voyage in Descent premiered online on Friday, October 1. This collection is inspired by a voyage into the deep sea, beginning with a portrayal of the silence and tranquility first felt in the water, and continuing to the uplifting sensation of making new discoveries in the deep sea. This voyage serves as inspiration to the original designs and making of the collection expressed through fluid, dynamic garments and lightweight, glistening materials.

SILENCE

SILENCE

The SILENCE series is created using the hikizome (hand-drawn dyeing) technique, done by craftspeople in Kyoto. Patterns are drawn onto damp fabric with brushes and paint sprayers, and continue to change until the fabric is dry as the dye solutions continue to seep in and develop. The luster of the fabric brings out qualities of stillness and adds a glistening touch. 

CARVED

CARVED

The CARVED series features a garment with fluid curves and openings on both sides of the body. The seemingly carved form emphasizes the wearer’s waistline. The cotton fabric is woven with Washi paper and biodegradable lamé fibers to give it a firm yet glossy texture and depth of color. This series can be worn as a suit, or can be styled as separates.

SWIMMING

SWIMMING

The SWIMMING series features patterns inspired by waves and creatures from the deep sea, printed on a lustrous rayon fabric. A printing technique called naki (bleed), allows the colors to seep in and blur into each other to faithfully represent the subtlety in the details created by the mix of four colors. The series is available in six styles including an open-back dress.

LINK RINGS

LINK RINGS

The LINK RINGS is an all hand-pleated key series of the collection. Its construction connects round pieces of fabrics to give rise to a bold and new garment that can be folded along the pleats into a compact size. The way it opens up and develops into ripples one after another inspires an uplifting sensation.

FLUIDITY LOOP

FLUIDITY LOOP

The FLUIDITY LOOP series is a new design featuring a garment form of fluid motion, made from a fabric knit in a spiral shape. Its organic form envelops the body and lends itself to many wearing styles. The textured surface is knit from two colors of recycled polyester yarn, allowing the color underneath to appear when the wearer moves, available in six styles, including a top that can be worn both forwards and backwards.

SWIMMING HUE

SWIMMING HUE

The SWIMMING HUE series is the solid color series of SWIMMING. Its smooth fabric brings out the airy qualities of the drapes in the fabric. Taken from the color pallete of SWIMMING, its vivid colors, like pink and yellow, express the world full of life in the depths of the sea.
