Issey Miyake Fall/Winter 2010 RTW

According to sources, the American mathematics professor William Thurston’s work inspired Dai Fujiwara’s fall collection for Issey Miyake.

Such a complex cerebral starting point could have been a real drag, but the clothes that resulted were surprisingly textured, quirky and upbeat. I loved the burst of colour at the beginning of the collection, as well as the matte/shiny dichotomy of the textures.
Models wore loops of knitting in green, mauve, pink and apricot, wound around simple tops above shiny black draped pants. Those outfits were followed by jackets that had been cut on the curve with spiraling piping to underscore fluidity.

Apparently the idea of three-dimensional forms of two-dimensional surfaces was the connection between the clothes’ amorphous shapes and Thurston’s theories.
