E-commerce site SSENSE commissioned Thomas Traum and his team to create a short CGI film to reveal the technological splendor of the Homme Plissé Issey Miyake Spring 2016 Collection. They reimagined the clothing focusing on the line’s innovation on textiles and cut.
Their idea was inspired by the simplicity of Issey Miyake’s clothes, expressed in particular through the images created by Irving Penn for Miyake’s collections in the ‘80s. In our film, they wanted to create a modern high-tech take of their approach, but keeping the spirit of these images created decades earlier. They wanted to strip the film back to the core essence: Clothes as a container and amplifier of the human body in movement.
