Issey Miyake SS24 Paints The Colors of the Wind

Delivering a masterclass in layering.

Issey Miyake looks to nature for inspiration for its Spring/Summer 2024 collection, emphasizing the shapeless yet impactful forces around us. Mimicking a fluttering flag in the wind or the glinting sun reflecting off water, Miyake’s Paris Fashion Week presentation celebrates our connection to nature and our intertwined ever-changing state of being.

WHAT: Issey Miyake’s SS24 collection offers mélange of artful silhouettes, enrobing models in swaths of fabric, accentuating the human form. Meanwhile, generously oversized suiting effectively drowns figures in uber-saturated colors, resulting in an almost otherworldly presentation.

WHO: Staying true to Miyake’s typical theatrical fashion, the runway transformed into an alternative dance performance, filling the space with bird sounds, resulting in a truly sensorial experience.

SAW: Textiles take center stage as models are completely enveloped in fabric as some are shielded by sheer face masks matching their ensembles, while others wear sculptural head wraps and gargantuan hats. The attention to tailoring doesn’t stop there as languidly draped dresses are cinched at the waist, joining monochromatic suits with bunched sleeves and coordinating bags, creating a seamless, fluid look. Miyake’s signature pleating takes shape in the form of sheer dresses layered with frothy shawls, accompanying fearlessly twisted tops and bridal-adjacent translucent two-piece sets. Vibrant ombre garments mirror the colors of the sunset with one ensemble comprised of a long-sleeved shirt and matching tights almost mimic the American flag.

HEAR: The performance featured live music with synth piano accompaniment.

TOUCH: Twisted fabric is the main protagonist with pleats playing a supporting role.

TASTE: Issey Miyake’s SS24 collection is a true masterclass in layering, demonstrating Miyake’s expert craftsmanship and unparalleled ability to infuse his designs with an intense emotion. Windswept dresses, sheer face masks and voluminous head wraps paired with poetic movement evoke an ethereal essence only Miyake could create.
