Issey Miyake AW15 “Colorscope”


By Sarah Ayache

The sources of gravity that continuously pull people to Paris Fashion Week are the shows that go beyond a runway presentation to showcase a memorable spectacle. The Issey Miyake show on March 6, 2015 was an experience that overtook the senses of sight and sound. It was absolute magic.

When the lights came on at Jardin des Tuileries, the live performance of Ei Wada hypnotized before the black, glossy runway came alive with silhouettes of rich, vibrant, Fall colors and textured fabrics.

The invitation, which was folded origami style, would only give an intricate clue into Creative Director, Yoshiyuki Miyamae’s artistic use of volume, drapery and pleats inspired by the 3D technique.

The finale was a sensational surprise as models donned colorful body suits with a belted mini skirt. As the belts were simultaneously undone the mini’s unfurled like origami into full-length waves and as the models twirled it was like a kaleidoscope of color was dancing down the runway.
