HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE SS22 "Human Ensemble"

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake Men’s Spring 2022 Paris

The human body was top of mind for this collection’s creation.

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake’s collection for spring further reveals the fine craft of the house’s design team, which produced a highly considered and wearable offer.

“The core inspiration revolves around the idea of the human body and the beauty and strength of its form,” explained a member of the house’s design team. Also taken into account were bodies’ movement, skin texture and translating that into each garment’s construction.

“We really hope that the clothing, the design can be celebrated by everyone and anyone,” he continued.

The making of was, as always, extremely technical. For the Body Arch series, there’s attention paid to curved folds melded with straight pleats in pants and jackets’ raglan sleeves. Meanwhile, the Oblique series features a diagonal line running across the garments. Everything here is made wholly of recycled polyester yarn.

Other techniques are used, too. The Body Movement series has curves drawn on with paint and sand, for instance.

This spring collection is themed Human Ensemble and comes in skin tones, with natural hues such as blues, olive and orange and peach in the mix.

In a divergence from the past two seasons, where Homme Plissé’s fashion films spotlighted garments in motion, the new low-key video features a large cast of people — including two women, of diverse ethnicities, backgrounds and trades — standing still as light and shadow travel across them and the pleats.

The spot, meant to give a new perspective on the clothes, could have been a yawn, but it isn’t. The viewer is able to home in on the architectural details.

The collection looks at the human body as it is constructed, and integrates elements inspired by the bodyʼs form, movement, and complexion into the design. Based on the brandʼs concept of clothing made for everyday living, the collection engages with the strength and beauty of the human body to explore original ensembles in harmony with their wearer.
