Cycling Gent by Issye Miyake for Spring/Summer 2013
Focusing on the cycling lifestyle that I really enjoy on my daily basis, I am very pleased with the concept of the Issey Miyake Men Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The menswear line unveils a contemporaneous rendition of ‘life with a bicycle’ elevating the paper clothing as a new dimension of style. Let alone the paddling trend itself that is clearly observed within the last years, the focal point of fashion by Issey Miyake goes further than just direction to the sporty attitude. The paper structure of this marvellous collection is composed of Japanese Washi paper that has a great adhibition in everyday clothing since Ancient times. What is more, the fashion house developed a washable paper textile that corresponds to the bicycle riding with the forms, designs and detailing presented in the collection. The clue is hidden in a crafty attitude that highlights innovative use of fabrics encapsulating the sophisticated feel and comfortable wit simultaneously.
