Issey Miyake Men Spring/Summer 2016

Issey Miyake Men Spring/Summer 2016

It has presented during Paris Fashion Week the menswear Spring/Summer 2016 collection by the legendary fashion designer Issey Miyake, giving rise to a dialogue between two cities, Tokyo and Mexico City, featuring a smashing syncretism under the sign of art and nature. The shining urban jungle which is part of these cities and is depicted by the young Tokyo photographer, Yoshinori Mizutani. The man becomes an urban animal who lives the city as a second colored nature, interacting with the rest of the world. References concerning nature and its hosts are impressed in the series of pictures “Tokyo parrots”, portraits of wild parrots seen on the streets of Tokyo turning into prints and decorating dresses and cotton poplin and jersey shirts. It’ s a sporty chic elegance, emphasized by a series of garments that draw inspiration from the Mexico city colors and the architecture by Luis Barragan. It’ s an alchemy made of monochrome shades, canvas and linen-cotton cloths, that are put together to become double-face, long waistcoats, Bermuda shorts, jackets and light, embroidered coats evoking the Mexican craftsmanship. It completes this suggestive display on male elegance the casual-chic creations, embodying the works, abstract pictures of Tokyo, from the series “Colors” by Mizutani along with something new, the eyewear, arising from the teaming with the Japanese producer Kaneko Optical, that will be launched from 25th to 28th September 2015 at Slimo Paris.

ARTE E NATURA, IL SINCRETISMO URBANO DI ISSEY MIYAKE

Issey Miyake Men Spring/Summer 2016

Issey Miyake Men Spring/Summer 2016

È stata presentata in occasione della Paris Fashion Week la collezione uomo primavera/estate 2016 del leggendario fashion designer Issey Miyake, che dà vita a un dialogo tra due città, Tokyo e Città del Messico, di cui è protagonista un formidabile sincretismo all’ insegna di arte e natura. La lussureggiante giungla urbana che é parte di queste città è immortalata dal giovane fotografo giapponese Yoshinori Mizutani. L’ uomo diventa un animale urbano che vive la città come una seconda colorata natura, la quale interagisce con il resto del mondo. Riferimenti inerenti la natura ed i suoi ospiti sono impressi nella serie di fotografie “Tokyo parrots”, ritratti di pappagalli selvatici avvistati per le strade di Tokyo che si trasformano in stampe e decorano abiti e camicie di popeline di cotone e jersey. Un’ eleganza sporty chic enfatizzata da una serie di capi che si ispirano ai colori di Città del Messico e all’ architettura di Luis Barragan. Un’ alchimia di nuances monocromatiche, tessuti di canapa e lino-cotone, assemblati per diventare double-face, lunghi gilet, Bermuda, giacche e leggeri cappotti ricamati che evocano l’ artigianalità messicana. Completano questa suggestiva rassegna sull’ eleganza maschile le creazioni casual-chic che racchiudono le opere, immagini astratte di Tokyo tratte dalla serie “Colors” di Mizutani unitamente a qualcosa di nuovo, la collezione di occhiali, che nascono dalla collaborazione con il produttore giapponese Kaneko Optical, la quale sarà lanciata dal 25 al 28 Settembre 2015 presso Slimo Paris.

Pleats as well as the experimentation of shapes and volumes by using of unusual cloths, innovative manufacture is a clear sign impressed in the work of legendary Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake. Suggestions coming from the realm of design become fashion, feature in the elegance’ s ritual of modern man and join to comfort and refinement. That is “Homme Plissè”, the new brand by the fashion designer which is based on three concepts: the pleats, product and present. The pleating process gives a comfortable elasticity to the product which arises from an engineering and design work and gives rise to creations for the contemporary man, genuine passé-partout.

HOMME PLISSÉ, L’ ELEGANZA MASCHILE CONTEMPORANEA DI ISSEY MIYAKE

I plissé come anche la sperimentazione di forme e volumi mediante l’ uso di tessuti insoliti, tecnologici, una manifattura innovativa è un segno impresso nell’ opera del leggendario fashion designer giapponese Issey Miyake. Suggestioni provenienti dal design diventano moda, protagoniste del rituale di eleganza dell’ uomo moderno e si uniscono a confort e raffinatezza. Questo è “Homme Plissè”, il nuovo marchio del fashion designer che si basa su  tre concetti: i plissé, il prodotto e il presente. Il processo di plissettatura dona una confortevole elasticità al prodotto che nasce da un’ opera di ingegneria e design e dà vita a creazioni per l’ uomo contemporaneo, autentici passé-partout.

Art and food”, the exhibition curated by Germano Celantrunning through 1st November 2015 -, was recently opened at the Milan Triennale Design Museum, which is the only thematic area placed in the Milan city centre of event Expo Milan 2015. It was a smashing display of art exploring the relationship with food, emphasized by many references and an amazing selections of objects and furniture. I start talking about that in reverse, showing  many works being in third section of the exhibition which is placed on the first floor of museum, featuring celebrated contemporary artworks (paintings, sculptures, videos and installations). That is the part of exhibition I appreciated mostly for its lightness though the myriad of artworks that here were on show – among whom I was glad to see the works by Joel-Peter Witkin, Gregory Crewdson, an installation by the fashion designer Issey Miyake along with the ones made by other celebrated artists.

Art and food”, la mostra curata da Germano Celantche prosegue fino all’ 1 novembre 2015 -, è stata recentemente inaugurata presso il Museo del Design della Triennale di Milano, unica area tematica ubicata nel centro di Milano dell’ evento Expo Milano 2015. Una formidabile rassegna d’ arte che esplora la relazione con il cibo, enfatizzata da plurimi riferimenti e una incredibile selezione di oggetti e arredi. Ne comincio a parlare a ritroso, mostrando varie opere che si trovano nella terza sezione della mostra che è ubicata al primo piano del museo, di cui sono protagoniste vare opere d’ arte contemporanea (dipinti, sculture, collage, video e installazioni). Questa è la parte della mostra che ho apprezzato di più per la sua leggerezza nonostante la myriade delle opere d’ arte ivi esposte – tra cui mi ha rallegrato vedere le opere di Joel-Peter Witkin, Gregory Crewdson, un’ installazione del fashion designer Issey Miyake insieme a quelle di molti altri celebri artisti.

21_21_DESIGN_SIGHT_DMJ_poster

It has recently opened in Tokyo at the 21—21 Design Sight the exhibition “Toward a Design Museum Japan”, organized by 21-21 Design Sight and the Issey Miyake Foundation – in association with the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Minato City Board of Education, Japan Institute of Design Promotion, the Council of the Design Association of Japanwhich runs through 9th February 2014, including collateral events as talks and workshops focused on the theme of design in order to encourage the rise of a Japan Design Museum. The starting idea of exhibition, as the curators Akiko Moriyama, Taku Satoh, and Naoto Fukasawa assert, has arisen from an article included in a newspaper from 2003 which featured the interview with Issey Miyake, titled “It’s time to create a Design Museum”. Since 10 years” – the curator say – “we asked ourselves: What are the things we can do to encourage the making of this museum?” The answer is the exhibition which reconstructs the past exhibitions and the activities connected to that, joined under the sign of motto “Practice what you preach”. The idea of design, impressed in the exhibition path (resuming the exhibition that were held at the 21-21 Design sight since it’s rise in 2007 and including works by Issey Miyake – and Irving Penn -, Naoto Fukasawa, Taku Satoh, Shobei Tarnaya, Shunji Yamanaka, Tadanori Yokoo, Tom Vincent, Yamanaka Yu, Katsumi Asaba, Lucie Rie, Shiro Kuramata , Ikko Tanaka), explores the idea of design as making-creation of product (the main idea with which design has perceived), the need of finding-searching the connections between things and events and linking-connecting communities with the world, before following with the making process. This path is completed by the section creating, the quintessence of creative process and is enriched by the works of six designers from the past as Ikko Tanaka. A powerful display on design, laudable initiative, supported by Issey Miyake, who paid attention to the need of creating Japanese design archives, considering his own experience as fashion designer and asserting (in the interview he gave in 2003) “design is really fascinating. I was able to continue my work without any hesitation and for such a long time it’s because there is no pain in the act of designing, being something which embodies hope and is able to amaze and bring joy to people”. A not to be missed happening to know and enjoy the design and creativity Made in Japan.

L’ idea su cui la mostra si basa, come affermano i curatori Akiko Moriyama, Taku Satoh e Naoto Fukasawa, nasce da un articolo incluso in un giornale del che conteneva l’ intervista a Issey Miyake il cui titolo era “È tempo di creare un Museo del Design”. “Da 10 anni a questa parte, dicono i curatori”, ci siamo chiesti: Quali sono le cose che possiamo fare per stimolare la creazione di tale museo?” La risposta è il percorso espositivo della mostra che ricostruisce le precedenti esposizioni e le attività a loro connesse” all’ insegna del motto “Pratica ciò che predichi”. L’ idea di design, impressa nel percorso espositivo della mostra( che riassume le mostre tenutesi presso il 21-21 Design sight a partire dalla sua nascita nel 2007 e include opera di Issey Miyake – ed Irving Penn -, Naoto Fukasawa, Taku Satoh, Shobei Tarnaya, Shunji Yamanaka, Tadanori Yokoo, Tom Vincent, Yamanaka Yu, Katsumi Asaba, Lucie Rie, Shiro Kuramata , Ikko Tanaka), esplora l’ idea di design come making-creazione di prodotto (l’ idea con cui il design è stato principalmente percepito), la necessità di finding-ricercare le connessioni tra le cose e gli eventi e linking-connecting collegare le comunità con il mondo prima di procedere al processo del fare. Questo percorso è completato dalla sezione creating, la quintessenza del processo creativo ed è arricchito dalle opere di sei designers del passato quali Ikko Tanaka. Un poderosa esposizione di design, lodevole iniziativa, sostenuta da Issey Miyake che ha prestato attenzione all’ esigenza di creare archivi di design giapponese, prendendo in considerazione la sua esperienza di fashion designer e affermando (nell’ intervista da lui rilasciata nel 2003) che “il design è veramente affascinante. La ragione per cui sono stato in grado di proseguire il mio lavoro senza esitazione e per così tanto tempo è molto semplice e lineare: è perché il dolore non ha posto nell’atto della progettazione, che racchiude in sé speranza ed è capace di sorprendere e dare gioia alle persone”. Un evento imperdibile per conoscere e apprezzare il design e la creatività Made in Japan.
