Catwalk Review: Issey Miyake Spring/Summer 2012
WHO? This was designer Yoshiyuki Miyamae's debut for the brand.
IN A NUTSHELL: Florals have made their way in a number of shows during the recent catwalk season, but not quite like this. Miyamae told us back stage that he used a microscope to examine delicate blooms, revealing the powerful cell structure that lies beyond normal view. The show itself was choreographed with the precision of a botonist, with different sections of the show relating to specific parts of the plant, from the bud to the stem to the petal.
