Issey Miyake‘s Fall/Winter 2024 collection, presented by Satoshi Kondo, marked a return to the essence of clothing. Drawing inspiration from the pure, earthy tones of Wolfgang Laib’s art installations, Kondo crafted a collection that celebrated nature’s inherent beauty and timeless elegance.

The garments themselves were a testament to this philosophy. Richly textured layers and fluid drapes replaced excessive embellishments, allowing the focus to fall on the masterful manipulation of fabric. Vivid hues of fuchsia, pollen yellow, and royal blue danced alongside serene mint greens, imbuing the collection with a sense of vibrancy and joy.

Kondo’s exploration of form was equally impressive. Body-conscious knits were shaped into delicate tubular flowers, while lighter fabrics of washi and stretch fibers draped effortlessly over the models’ bodies. The voluminous washi and wool pieces added a touch of drama, with long coats and ponchos showcasing the designer’s skill in crafting sculptural silhouettes.

The show’s venue, the former Museum of Colonialism, added an unexpected layer of intrigue. The juxtaposition of Kondo’s nature-inspired collection against the museum’s colonial frescoes sparked a thought-provoking dialogue about cultural exchange and the evolution of human connection.
