Start of the AUTUMN WINTER 2022 Season

The AUTUMN WINTER 2022 season will start at ISSEY MIYAKE stores in Japan on Friday, July 1.

AUTUMN WINTER 2022/23 - Sow It and Let It Grow -

 

A seed drops into fertile soil.

Asleep in the dark taking in warmth, water, and air, it awaits germination.

There, roots begin to creep downward;

There, a sprout emerges and extends upward.

The roots by nature force their way onward in every direction,

For the fruits that will eventually bear.

Then, storing the energy little by little, a stem grows into stems,

From which a leaf grows into leaves, and so does a fruit into fruits.

 

The time has arrived to see these vegetables for the first time,

Fully grown dug out from the earth:

Curled, twisted, bent, coiled, entwined, all fresh and lively.

The ripeness underneath their soiled skins smells like the earth.

 

They are all different, in colors vivid and bold and of forms free and uncontrived.

They are all irregular, and in irregularity there is pride and grace.

They are wild, strong, and handsome—untamed by conventions.

PODS

A pleated series dyed with the traditional Shiborizome (tie-dyeing) technique. The polyester fabric used has a smooth texture. The garment form was designed from three connecting round pieces, inspired by a pea pod. The fabric between the round pieces is first pleated, and then it is tightened and bound by hand by Shiborizome craftspeople in Kyoto one at a time before dyeing. To minimize the bleed of the dyes, the fabric is bound in a specific way and with various kinds of strings. This series is an example of ISSEY MIYAKE’s original design and making, that integrates the traditional technique and its pleating technology.

Lineup (number of styles): Tops (2), Pants (1),  Dresses (2),  Shirt (1)

Colors: Khaki, Black, Brown

The creation space at ISSEY MIYAKE SEMBA will present a special exhibition “Sow It and Let It Grow” from Friday, July 1 to Friday, July 29.
