Paris, France – Whenever fashion week rolls around in Paris, we have our favorite fashion houses from whom we expect so much. Fortunately for us, there are the staples on the international scene that always show up on time and give us what we expect. This is the case with Issey Miyake.
The new Fall Winter 2017/18 collection is called about hearing the call of the wild. According to Issey Miyake, “This collection combines the ease of urban outfits, the outdoor spirit of trekking and the patterns that arise from nature’s energy. Men today stand for a new relationship with elegance – one that integrates the sensibility of natural textures. Ever pursuing the aesthetic of functionality, this season ISSEY MIYAKE MEN presents mobile workwear that encompasses the essence of the forest as seen through a spectrum of colors that fade into the distant forest dim.”
In the collection we find lots of tailored pieces. The trousers are cut above the ankles and have been ribbed with elastic. There is a multitude of colors that sometimes end up in the same piece of clothing. The pieces have been constructed on the many fabrics that are created in-house by the research and development team at Issey Miyake. There is a mixture of natural textures and technical materials. They work together to help push forth the vision of a wildness that comes to the city.
