Issey Miyake Fall/Winter 2014

Nature was a primary source of inspiration for designer Yoshiyuki Miyamae’s “rhythmatic forest” fall collection for Issey Miyake, which used the brand’s signature hand-pleating and “steam stretch” techniques — the process by which computers program steam heat to shrink jacquard fabrics into three-dimensional grooves — to evoke tree rings.

Models emerged on the runway carrying “bags” shaped like half-circles, which they opened and placed flat on the floor to reveal circular piles of fabric. These unfolded into accordion-pleated dresses and jackets that the models slipped over their black shirts and pants to create quick and transformative looks.

A line from the show notes best sums up the overall idea behind the show: “Cloth harbours the power of life: wrap yourself in it and feel an instantaneous metamorphosis into pure joy at the wonder of living.”

Bao Bao Issey Miyake and N&R Foldings both attempt to create new experiences with bags. The two have come together to evolve the futuristic, origami-inspired bag ‘Distortion’. The bag is constructed using the new method of sequence pieces transformed into a three-dimensional structure. N&R Foldings is a London/Tokyo based Design studio founded by Rodrigo Solorzano and Naoki Kawamoto. With a particular interest in digital generation and digital fabrication N&R’ s work draws inspiration from Origami and its functional capabilities. This has led them to the creation of different articulated surfaces that offer solutions to a big variety of products.
