We are pleased to announce that HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE embarks on a new shoes project with WAKOUWA, which was unveiled in Paris on the occasion of the HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE AW 2020/21 collection titled <HP3 JAM>.
WAKOUWA, a basic sneaker model of the ANATOMICA collections, is the fruit of tireless research and development. With the goal of offering “a pair of most comfortable sneakers for everyone”, an ideal wooden mold has been figured out through years of struggle, based on a pair of boat shoes made in 1944 for the US military use.
The first sneaker series launching this season, inspired by a rich variety of colors symbolic of the four seasons, which are celebrated in poems from the oldest collection of classic Japanese poetry called MANYOSHU, comes in 6 colors as follows: NEZUMI, MOMO, YAMABUKI, MATSU, HANADA, and KUWA.
Please enjoy discovering an original sneaker series which combines WAKOUWA’s beautiful silhouette and the color palette very characteristic of HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE.
This new series will be available from Tuesday, September 1st, at all of the HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE shops as well as some of the ANATOMICA stores.
