Paris Fashion Week: Issey Miyake Spring/Summer 15

Getting technical

Issey Miyake's Spring/Summer 15 show brought a unique blend of innovation, colour and technical excellence to the runway at the Place de la Concorde in the centre of Paris this afternoon

With models floating like coloured clouds along the runway in a show entitled 'windscape', the creative power of nature's most powerful element was explored by the artistic Japanese designer Issey Miyake for SS15.

Artist Ei Wada, a member of the Open Reel Ensemble, used helium balloons attached to the ends of magnetic tape, similar to those found in old-fashioned tape recorders – and created a fun sense of play as models strolled down the catwalk in multiple numbers.

The 'stream-stretch' used technology is developed by Issey Miyake. It's born from the tradition of pleats and A-POC, and is technically neither knitwear nor pleats – but starts with a single piece of cloth into which 'creases' have been incorporated in a fine detailed design process.

The results are fun and confident with truly beautiful silhouettes creating much fuss amongst the fashion crowd for the new season ahead.
