ISSEY MIYAKE

A dramatic and primeval dance performance kicked off the show, showing the flexibility of the fabric.

Bursts of yellow and fuzzy fringes cropped up on layered dresses, evoking the moss-laden lava fields.

 

 

Icelandic scenes appeared elsewhere, mossy igneous rocks and ice blue glaciers abstracted via the heat treated fabrics.

Long, white zigzagging stripes softened the blue and another landscape imprint on a wide-legged pantsuit ensemble.

 

The stand-outs were the checked looks, which the deliciously detailed show notes informed us was made using the traditional “Dorozome” mud dyeing method from Amami Oshima.

Rich and strange, this was manna infused in weightiness of fabric with the look and texture that felt fresh.
