Issey Miyake RTW Spring 2015

Sculpting with air — that was the central concept of Yoshiyuki Miyamae’s spring collection.

Sculpting with air — that was the central concept of Yoshiyuki Miyamae’s spring collection for Issey Miyake, which made ample use of the brand’s new 3-D Steam Stretch technology.

It works by applying steam to a single piece of cloth into which creases have been incorporated in advance. The fabric takes on a three-dimensional form, like a waffle grid of squares or dense origami-style pleats.

Much like a paper lantern, the result is voluminous and light. Miyamae deployed the technique to produce tops and dresses with shawls that swathed the shoulders, but proved it could also be used to more understated effect, as in a plain white top with a boat neck and three-quarter-length sleeves.

The designer also continued his exploration of checks, a recurring theme in his collections. Graphic outfits included a sundress featuring color blocks in spice shades spliced with a black-and-white grid pattern, and a simple vest and culottes in an overblown plaid motif.

While the loose constructions were ideal for showcasing the architectural properties of the pleating technique, they threatened at times to swamp the frame. It would be interesting to see how the technology could be used to adapt to the wearer’s body.
