Issey Miyake Mixes The Spirit of The 70s with 3D Steam Stretch

By Ann Binlot

March 10, 2015

As usual, Issey Miyake went for an unconventional approach to open its fall/winter 2015 show. Ei Wada started playing the show’s live soundtrack, simultaneously playing eight guitars as singer Chiyako belted out notes. Creative director Yoshiyuki Miyamae took his innovative 3D Steam Stretch to another level. By incorporating jewel tones into the black and white of the 3D Steam Stretch, Miyamae for an additional dimension of color on both classic silhouettes and oversized, bulbous pieces. Next came out a series of looks featuring a three-dimensional grid pattern using a vibrant shade of blue on coats

Miyamae transitioned into geometric patterns that conjured up the spirit of the 1970s, followed by vivid, kaleidoscopic patterns that resembled those found in frost. The stars of the show were no doubt the “belts” that were debuted during the finale. Models in minimalist, monochromatic ensembles stepped out under spotlights and from their belts bloomed beautiful, colorful circular skirts inspired by the structure of a spiral seashell that they showcased by spinning around whirling dervish style. The 3D Steam Stretch has certainly evolved, and where Miyamae will take it next season is anybody’s guess.
