A Sense of Joy
Something that is intrinsic always feels new.
Like what our body desires, like what our heart feels,
Like how we find the blue in the sea and the sky beautiful,
Like the ease we feel when a breeze caresses our face,
And like the excitement that prompts us to sing and dance.
We are never tired of feelings like these and only wish to experience more, For the novelty we always find in them.
If we trace back to the origin of clothing, there we would find a simple act
of wrapping ourselves with a piece of cloth, perhaps an inclination to adorn our body. As we do so we feel a sense of joy that is primitive and instinctive.
Draw · Connect
Overlap · Dye
Swing · Extend
Move · Bounce
Dance · Turn
We find things that are intrinsic in both tradition and innovation: in the culture of weaving and dyeing practiced in Japan since the old days, and in the latest manufacturing technologies and materials developed by advanced science. It is in our interest to look at them with a new perspective, and by connecting and integrating them we can begin to create clothes that bring us a sense of joy.
It all started from a simple idea of bringing people from different regions and generations together, different as they are, forming circles and holding hands, as we all share this joy intrinsic to who we are that is not bound
by space and time.

Chain of Inspiration
A sudden inspiration invites you into a journey, where unknown sceneries take your breath away; unknown scents captivate you. You find yourself humming songs and getting to know unforgettable taste, thinking thoughts you never had before. Chance encounters continue to stimulate our creativity.
“DOUGH DOUGH” is a free and flexible textile with outstanding shape memory, and the ability to stimulate a person’s imagination, turning them into artist and creator. New for this season is the inclusion of a wool-like fibre into the fabric mix, in a variety of colors, allowing for a softer feel and texture.
The new fabric this season is called: “BLINK” and has a color palette reminiscent of layers of colored lights. This resin printed fabric creates a new pattern, resembling a kaleidoscope. Through our unique discoveries, new possibilities arise.
« DOUGH DOUGH » est une matière que l’on peut modeler librement et qui possède une mémoire de forme exceptionnelle permettant de stimuler l’imagination de chacun en révélant leur fibre artistique et créatrice. Cette saison, DOUGH DOUGH évolue encore : des fibres d’une grande douceur telles de la laine sont incorporées au tissu, dans une large variété de couleurs.
« BLINK », l’innovation textile de cette saison offre une palette de couleurs rappelant celle des spectres lumineux. Des motifs en résine sont imprimés sur le tissu formant ainsi un effet kaléidoscope. À travers nos innovations, de nouvelles possibilités de porter le vêtement apparaissent.

When thinking of the world of nature in the cold harsh winter months, there are enduring plants and animals living and waiting for spring to blossom. Quiet strength and gentleness wraps around them. Nature is a continuous source of inspiration.
Knit and pleats are both incorporated in this season’s Steam Stretch to give the new texture. Weaving low count wool thread into the textile creates a new knit-like texture.
It generates a lightness that bounces like pleated material and a functionality that is easily cared for, bringing joy and fresh surprise to the modern lifestyle.
ISSEY MIYAKE’s concept «A Piece Of Cloth» continues to evolve.

A multitude of infinite color, interwoven within a prismic geometry of shapes like a kaleidoscope.
A joyful world where a whirlwind of refracted light overflows into colors that spill into people’s hearts and emotions.
The power of nature’s beautiful expression manifested in snow crystals and swirling seashells – evolved to perfection over eons, their mystical allure endless.
Imbued with the hope that hovers between light and shadow, the dazzling manifestation of color emerges from stillness to movement and into our waking perception with joy.
