Issey Miyake Fall/Winter 2014
Nature was a primary source of inspiration for designer Yoshiyuki Miyamae’s “rhythmatic forest” fall collection for Issey Miyake, which used the brand’s signature hand-pleating and “steam stretch” techniques — the process by which computers program steam heat to shrink jacquard fabrics into three-dimensional grooves — to evoke tree rings.
Models emerged on the runway carrying “bags” shaped like half-circles, which they opened and placed flat on the floor to reveal circular piles of fabric. These unfolded into accordion-pleated dresses and jackets that the models slipped over their black shirts and pants to create quick and transformative looks.
A line from the show notes best sums up the overall idea behind the show: “Cloth harbours the power of life: wrap yourself in it and feel an instantaneous metamorphosis into pure joy at the wonder of living.”
Does this mean I can start wearing candy necklaces in a professional setting?

Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2014
"Today is a new day. A big day. You are about to witness my first fashion show for Louis Vuitton. Words cannot express exactly how I am feeling at this moment … Above all, immense joy at being here, in the knowledge that my stylistic expression is at one with the Louis Vuitton philosophy. The proud legacy. The inspiring history that looks to the future and to the world. The quest for authenticity and innovation. The desire for timelessness. Does not every designer ultimately seek to create something timeless? I salute the work of Marc Jacobs, whose legacy I wholeheartedly hope to honour. And I thank you for being here to share this moment with me. Thanks to all of you who have helped me to tell this new story and who make Louis Vuitton what it is, and especially to those who work with me. Thanks to everyone who is here on this day, this morning. Right now."
