HOMME PLISSÉ FW2022 – Video by Kyotaro Hayashi

A WORK OF ARC

‘The HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE FW2022 collection A WORK OF ARC looks at a tent, as a structure consisting of fabric and a frame, and adapts elements of its construction for clothes making. The way it engages in making folds and creases like drawing arcs on a pleated canvas gives rise to a new exploration of three-dimensional forms. By experimenting with the fundamentals of making a garment: the way to fold, sew, and pleat a piece of fabric, and studying the relationship between them, the collection develops original silhouettes that surround the body and evoke a presence of a sculpture so lively that it looks like it is about to move.

The video directed by Kyotaro Hayashi brings out qualities and character in the garments that are yet to be discovered. His bold camerawork and captivating direction look at each garment slowly as a piece of artwork from many angles and varying distances. By choreographing the orientation and the pairing of a variety of scenes, including floating the cast in the air, the video conveys the beauty of the garments’ sculptural forms.’
