Issey Miyake clothingYoshiyuki Miyamae, the current designer at Issey Miyake clothing, played on the the Spring/Summer 2016 fringe trend with raffia details that stem from the tropics. Also this season, the company introduced a new technique involving a glue developed from the tropics that interacts with the fabric to produce pleats.

Shobhan’s buying perspective: “Of course I fell for the jacket of the season in red and turquoise that defined the collection. From there we selected the new pleated jackets woven with silk and other natural fibers that have an exceptional feel.”
