HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE presented their Fall/Winter 2024/25 collection “Immersed in the Wilds of Creativity”, at Palais de Tokyo during Paris Fashion Week, exploring the translation of creative material into clothing design, looking at the relationship between a concept and its actual realization.

Artist Ronan Bouroullec engaged with the design team working with his drawings, not just as a portfolio of work to appreciate as art, but more so as an extensive body of diverse materials to dive into and play freely with. Bouroullec’s clear understanding of the brand’s design approach and creative process, paired with many meaningful exchanges with him, has inspired this collection. Drawings are incorporated into clothing from drawing pleats to all-over pleats.

It was an extraordinary experience to work with the design team, where I discovered many things over the course of the creative session about what my work has in common and in contrast with their clothing design. And it is the synergy as well as the distance between us that have made this project both inspiring and rewarding”, stated Bouroullec.

The “CUSHION COAT” featuring a patch-style pocket which the garment can be folded into, creating a functional cushion was immediately all over socials as the stand-out piece. The embroidered shirts were less loud but stood out to the naked eye for the intricate threadwork slightly outside the outlines of the original drawings to emphasize the dynamic expression of the artwork while the “Drawing” scarves offered up the most reliable wearable art knitted with multi-colored yarn and have holes in considered places, allowing them to be wrapped and worn in multiple ways.
