Paris Fashion Week: Issey Miyake plays with nature, vivid colors and overlays
One highlight of the second day of men's fashion week in Paris was the Issey Miyake show that took place in the gardens of the Musée du Quai Branly. The theme of the show, which was inspired by Tokyo and Mexico City and was filled with color, was nature, both in palette and prints, sprinkled with the poetic touch that the Japanese brand is known for. It wasn't just the collection itself that proved poetic, but the entire atmosphere surrounding the Issey Miyake Men show, from the music to the décor, and obviously the choice of the gardens of the Musée du Quai Branly as a staging ground.
