HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE Reference Japanese Dogu Figurines for Spring 2018
A historic look back at Japan’s Jomon era.
In looking ahead to the upcoming Spring/Summer 2018 season, HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE turns the page back to Japan’s Jomon era, with the period’s ‘Dogu’ figurines set as the underlying theme. Characterized by their distinct facial expressions, the clay characters serve as symbols of prayer for abundance, fertility and good health.
The collection itself depicts staple pieces that have been reimagined with distinct design details running central throughout. Replacing punchy graphics and bold typography are exaggerated silhouettes, pleated accents, ribbed impressions and frayed finishes — all cues the fashion house has become increasingly known for. Check out the lookbook video above and let us know what you think.
