Scene setting: Faceted forms placed on the show space floor were an expression of Issey Miyake creative director Yoshiyuki Miyamae’s geometric mindset. The live electronic synthesiser tunes that were playing had a similar, deliberately askew feel to them.
 
Mood board: Inspired by the germination of seeds and the natural flow of life, the brand departed somewhat from its usual geometric and sculptural aesthetic towards more organic lines. Colour-blocked prints and ensembles alternated with African-inspired prints and, of course, three-dimensional origami pleating.
 
Finishing touches: Alex Box applied ethereal white circles in sinuous sequences that followed and accentuated the contours of the face.
