The Photographer’s word

LIQUID is a beautiful concept for a fashion story. Of course, my first thought or inspiration about liquid was water, especially because it’s summer time.

For this issue #11, Revver collaborated with two wonderful Japanese fashion designers: Yohji Yamamoto and Issey Miyake. So I took a look at the clothes and it was obvious that a swimming pool was necessary to set the scene.

We were lucky enough to get a swimming pool on a rooftop in the heart of Taipei city, giving a chic atmosphere to our cover story. Wonderful clothes, awesome location and great make up and hairstyle, thanks to our talented team, everything was ready for our fashion story, personified by Julia, a model with personality.

With all those ingredients I could start to imagine the story: a rich and elegant woman, wandering around the swimming pool for the very last time under the summer sun. Is this leading to a new start or is it simply the end? Her head full of memories and phantasms, our heroin hesitates….

Yohji Yamamoto has led the world’s fashion scene over 40 years since his debut as designer in 1972. Based on a rebellious spirit against existing values, he continues to create revolutionary design. The designer, who has particularly concentrated on creation of clothing, proposes new vision through “Luxury Accessory.” It will feature bags, shoes, and scarves made in Japan, in modest and elegant design with Japanese delicacy.

 

 

Issey Miyake debuted his first collection in New York in 1971 and began participating in Paris Fashion Week from 1973. His unique concept of clothing as “A Piece Of Cloth” was widely acclaimed throughout the world from the very beginning. An inexhaustible explorer, he has continued to open up new horizons for making clothes through research, experimentation and development while reimagining the relationship between the human body and clothing. 

With a resolute determination of moving ever forward, Miyake has brought forth several epoch-making outcomes, including original pleated pieces from 1989, which would later develop into PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE, and the basic idea and process of A-POC in 1997, this time in collaboration with Dai Fujiwara, which would soon evolve into a design solution called A-POC INSIDE which was incorporated into the ISSEY MIYAKE collections as well as in all other brands owned by the ISSEY MIYAKE group.

Placing a high value on fostering various human resources and innovative technologies in the industry since the foundation of the brand, Miyake’s spirit of making things has been passed on to a new generation of designers, past and present. 

It is Yoshiyuki Miyamae and his team of designers at the helm of the ISSEY MIYAKE Women’s collection since the Spring/Summer 2012 Collection. 

They are taking on further challenges with fresh eyes and new ideas, while combining the traditional techniques of Japan with new technologies.
