In quest of new silhouettes, the Homme Plissé Issey Miyake’s design staff hit the street — journeying an hour-and-a-half outdoors Tokyo. There they pitched some tents, the arcing types of which impressed the autumn assortment, referred to as A Work of Arc.
“Truly placing posts by way of the material of the tent is like making many folds and creases in a pleated cloth,” defined Issey Miyake’s inventive director Satoshi Kondo, who along with his colleagues (after a conventional tenting journey curry meal) utilized the findings to the model’s pleated clothes for fall.
The gathering was filled with sturdy, sculptural silhouettes with swish actions and crafted meticulously. For one trouser mannequin, somewhat than having the pleats run vertically or horizontally as is custom for Homme Plissé, they run diagonally, intersecting in ridges arcing across the legs.
One voluminous jacket, in a pentagon form, was composed of three foremost converging cloth items, every with a distinct pleat orientation that was impressed by the sensation of sitting inside a tent. The “flip coat” goes from lengthy to brief (or vice versa) with straps that may be fixed on the shoulders.
The gathering pops with saturated colours, resembling purple, azure and orange. There’s one “lantern” print — impressed by the Stargazer tent and the way lantern mild glows by way of a tent cloth.
For the gathering’s video presentation, the concept was to point out the clothes from numerous angles, so slow-motion footage had fashions doing issues like leaping.
