Issey Miyake Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

Psychedelic colors, kaleidoscope patterns and a whole lot of colorful beeswax thrown over the models seem to define the Issey Miyake fall/winter 2015-2016 collection as it was newly presented on the Paris Fashion Week runway. Boy we were in for an interesting surprise with this one as we are left wondering about where on earth we could wear half these pieces.

The initial pieces look like the colorful beeswax we used to use to create candles out of, keeping our childish selves occupied for hours on end as we made a whole collection of blue, red and yellow combinations. Well, now we have a collection that begins with a yellow coatdress, followed by popped lapels on a skirt suit in turquoise, while we begin to get into mixed of royal blue and red, the black outlines making it appear almost crimson, as well as throwing in asymmetric yellow skirts with red oversized jackets and turquoise shawls, or mixing it up to be royal blue skirts with extremely oversized yellow sweaters and red shawls. What does not go unnoticed is that all of these are larger in size and the only thing fitted is the thick black tights and the shiny black booties.

While we begin with beeswax, we seem to move on into basket weaves that start off with a lovely dress and move into electric blue and black base coats before we suddenly have a psychedelic splash of color and a whole lot of zigzags and stripes in shades of blue, yellow, and shades of orange, combined with Marsala and white. The pants come in legging style as well as swishing loose trousers in navy blue and teal, before we see some long culottes and striped pieces that have an optical illusion effect. It appears as if the optical illusion garments are also a new trend to be added to the list for the fall and winter seasons. Speaking about optical illusions, some of the last pieces of the collection on the runway include kaleidoscope prints in different colors, ranging from blacks and white and grey to light blue and purple and navy, pinks and purples to different shades of blue; we have violets and yellows appear together to turn the kaleidoscope into more floral designs, while we also have some fall colors in terms of shades of red and shades of gold, muted but still captivating in coloring. And then there is that final piece presented by a twirling dark skinned model who presents the blue translucent top tucked into a blue and yellow pleated skirt that really has a whole lot of fabric in it, flying about as in every girl’s dreams as she twirls to show off her dress.

The Japanese fashion designer has long been known for his technology driven clothing designs, while he simply seems to pay no attention to his 76 years of age, constantly presenting a new line or brand, designing and redesigning and simply living to the fullest. We have to admit, his pieces are often quite a bit better than those by designers half his age.
