Shop the Look:


Art Nouveau didn’t just fade away during the second decade of the 20th century. It isn’t limited to Gaudí’s masterpieces of organic architecture or to Alfons Mucha’s decorative illustrations. It still lives in nature-inspired design such as this Issey Miyake crossbody bag, which epitomizes art and technology-driven design meeting the highest form of fashion with its geometric, pleated texture and pristine appearance.

Art Nouveau, the art and architecture style that dominated the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th and which was also inspired by natural forms, clearly didn’t just fade away. If there is one designer still creating organic fashion, i.e. fashion inspired by natural forms, it is Issey Miyake. Also known for his cutting edge technology-driven fashion design and his experimental methods of pleating, Issey Miyake creates much more than just fashion. His designs represent the highest form of fashion as well as fashion as a form of art.

This Issey Miyake pleated crossbody bag is the perfect example of how nature, art, technology and fashion can become one. The geometric pattern could have easily been inspired by the structure of a diamond. However, it is even more complicated than that: A computer modelling software is used to design three-dimensional geometric shapes of garments, where mathematical research is implemented in the creation of these forms by modelling them in paper or  a flat material and adding cuts or folding lines, until they are able to be flattened.

As a long time fan of the cult designer label, to me, the movement of the sculptural garments and accessories is the epitome of poetry in fashion. It inspired me to create these short films to demonstrate how seamlessly this bag moves and blends with the human shape.

Let me know your thoughts and if you like it.

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday. x
