Backstage at Issey Miyake AW14Shot by Lea ColomboIssey Miyake AW14FashionShowPleated dresses pulled out of handbags, abstract patchwork prints and statement silhouettes28February 2014TextBrooke McCordPhotographyLea ColomboIssey Miyake AW1415 Initial reaction: An eruption of pleated cylindrical structures, which created statement unconventional silhouettes. Prints please Miyake: Forget pleats, it was all about the prints. An abstract linear patchwork in three colour-ways progressed throughout the collection. Stand out look: A cylindrical double layer, accordion-pleat dress, block coloured in scarlet, black and bronze. Accessories: Six rigid half-moon shaped handbags, from which the models each pulled a pleated dress to wear down the catwalk. Soundtrack: Models walked to the live sounds of Chiyako and Ei Wada’s self-invented spring guitar.
