Editorial

The Issey Miyake show was accompanied by a Kankisenthizer, a musical instrument that turns light into sound; the first looks were soft, colourful dresses and tops with soft trousers made with the ‘baked-stretch’ technique – a process by which fabric is expanded by heat to create fluid shapes with a kinetic, kaleidoscopic effect. As the sound changed, the palette became more neutral and muted. In black, white and grey, the surfaces were more ‘ironed out’, less complex and more linear, before returning to spiral pleating with origami details and more intense colours, up to the final full-length red cape. Black leather boots with square toes completed the look.
