ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Issey Miyake's spring/summer 2018 collection is a journey to memory land. The drift of memories are transmitted into flowy three-dimensional garments with abstract, hazy patterns reminiscent of creative director Yoshiyuki Miyamae's travels to Iceland. Miyamae said the harsh and primitive Icelandic volcanic terrain, that pulsed with life, inspired his creations and he wanted to "visualize the experience in the garments." Issey Miyake's signature three-dimensional fabrics, using 'Baked Stretch' and 'Steam Stretch' technology, brought waves and textures to balloon dresses and poncho tops, hewing close to Miyamae's idea of uneven and ambivalent memories.
