Dive into the sea and swim in the silence. Discover Issey Miyake Spring Summer 2022 collection “A Voyage in Descent” presented via digital lookbook, during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week. Inspired by a voyage into the deep sea, the collection is expressed through fluid, dynamic garments and lightweight, glistening materials. The collection video is directed by Tokyo based, Japanese director Yuichi Kodama.
This collection is inspired by a voyage into the deep sea, beginning with a portrayal of the silence and tranquility first felt in the water, and continuing to the uplifting sensation of making new discoveries in the deep sea. This voyage serves as inspiration to the original designs and making of the collection expressed through fluid, dynamic garments and lightweight, glistening materials. – from Issey Miyake.
The collection is presented through seven unique segments – SILENCE, CARVED, SWIMMING, LINK RINGS, FLUIDITY LOOP, SWIMMING HUE and WAVELET. Each part of the collection uses brand’s signature cutting-edge techniques and new materials, merging of traditional practices with advanced technologies.
Directed by Yuichi Kodama, the video presents a riveting world built upon the collection theme of undersea exploration. As the music progresses and builds up to a pervading, tense ambience, various scenes introduce models onstage, expressing qualities of fluency and elegance before descending further into the sea. Down in the depths of the sea, through mysterious and wavering dimming light, spectacles appear one after another, leading to the uplifting moments of the last scene. – from Issey Miyake.
