Just like chameleons, men are urban, subtle and neon-coloured animals. Issey Miyake’s Spring/Summer 2016 offering depicts them living in erratic places and changing outfits like they would change skins. As Takahashi confessed, he was profoundly influenced by the Tokyoite ambiance , a sprawling and vivid place with eclectics and visual graphics that find their echo in a vibrant and diverse Spring/Summer 2016 collection.
It certainly requires an efficient hand to redesign the Quai Branly Musem in the middle of Paris but it is now all done thanks to Yusuke Takahashi’s accurate and precise inspiration. For Paris Fashion Week, the Japanese designer settled an urban jungle in the museum’s gardens, unveiling the fantasy behind Issey Miyake’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection.
