Spring Series: the challenge signed by Issey Miyake

Array

Homme Plissé by Issey Miyake rediscovers the charm of Japanese erotic prints Shunga and of Ukiyo-e style, very popular during the Edo period (1603-1867) and it takes inspiration from the provocative, irreverent graphics of this movement, in order to print them over coats, kimonos and t-shirts, by giving the male look a highly iconic and ironic accent. Not only in the lines, but also in the graphics with an emphasis on the different forms of erotism, you can find the smart playfulness, typical of Miyake, and a will to surprise, starting from the reality, the truth: a sort of artistic movement, that has been often subject of exhibitions (like that in the British Museum in 2013) and that has involved famous international painters and artists.
