Although there will never be another Issey Miyake, creative director Satoshi Kondo has been keeping the label’s legacy alive through a fusion of respectful reverence for Miyake and his own design affinity. Simply put, he’s been doing a great job. So as the brand returned to Paris Fashion Week once again, what came down the runway for the Fall/Winter 2024 season was a fusion of form and function.

The concept is by no means new in the Issey Miyake world. The late designer was not just known but celebrated for his designs that produced clothes as moving sculptures. Whether it be through layering, remixed proportions or his signature pleated fabric, Miyake’s label has always been synonymous with unique form without compromising function. So with FW24, Kondo keeps this heartbeat going across menswear, womenswear and quintessentially genderless garments.

From knitwear to wool and even blended fabrics, the collection spans the lot of refined daywear and evening wear. But even with its versatile design cadence, the wardrobe harbors a refined edge that sees cape overlays, wrap tops, flowing trousers and oversized trench coats. They’re elegant, but still east. That same ease extends itself to knitwear whose ribbed and smooth fabrics take on a more abstract touch with elongated sleeves, relaxed cable knits and slightly bell bottoms pants. But of course, some of the collection’s shining jewels are the layered, full-body-pleated looks that closed the show – in true Miyake form.

Take a look at the collection in the gallery above and stay tuned to Hypebeast’s coverage of Paris Fashion Week.
