Presented on Thursday, June 23 at La Poste du Louvre in Paris, the HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE SPRING SUMMER 2023 COLLECTION, Flowers and Vases, looks at elements inspired by delicate flowers and robust vases. The collection features curved and straight folds in the uniformly pleated fabric, finished with twisting and layering garment constructions. The design explores the contrast between flowers and vases, thereby introducing a collective presence that is subtle and yet strong.
The show is directed by Rachid Ouramdane, the director of Théâtre National de Chaillot, and features a cast of models, performers, and members of the collective of acrobats, Compagnie XY. The show expresses the duality found in the collection in a performance that is both still and dynamic, steady and swift.
