ISSEY MIYAKE “Sow It and Let It Grow”
The ISSEY MIYAKE 2022/23 AUTUMN WINTER collection, Sow It and Let It Grow, examines the wild nature of plants and the beauty of their forms. It draws inspiration from the way seeds take root, sprout, and break through the soil in pursuit of light.
This exhibition focuses on the PODS and SLICE series. These new creations are reminiscent of strong, beautiful, and unconventional wild fruits and vegetables. PODS, made by artisans in Kyoto using the traditional shiborizome (tie-dyeing) technique, is a series of circular patterns inspired by peas and pods. The SLICE series represents the succulent cross-sections of fruits and vegetables expressed through the hikizome (hand-drawn dyeing) technique created by artisans in Kyoto.
Presented on a bed of fertile soil, the exhibition features videos of the shiborizome and hikizome techniques and the garments. We hope the guests will be able to experience the living and breathing nature of the artisans’ skillful hand-dyeing techniques and ISSEY MIYAKE’s modern ingenuity.
