2017 早秋系列:ISSEY MIYAKE 引用精緻京都絞染工藝,演繹當代日式美學

ISSEY MIYAKE 三宅一生的服飾,一直都致力於推崇引用與演繹革新日本傳統的製衣手工技藝,這季早秋更是大量嘗試援引了日本傳統絞染 (絞り染め:shibori) 染布技藝當中的夾纈 (板締め:Itajime shibori dyeing) 在布面設計的程序中,為服裝注入一份職人手感。

傳統絞染的夾纈技藝

京都絞染為日本文化當中歷史悠久的紮染技術,此種工藝講求在染色之前對布料的捆扎、縫合、編織、折疊、夾壓等方式處理織物,使得布料進入染缸時,染料無法慎入綁紮處,而在留白處形成各種花紋與樣式。

在多樣絞染技藝當中,夾纈又被稱為折染,職人在使用此種手法處理織物時,會使用兩塊木板折疊不料局部製造對稱捲折,並以有彈性的繩子綑紮固定再放入染缸。夾纈技藝製作出的圖樣,多具有如萬花筒一般的對稱視覺效果,並具有清晰的圖樣邊緣和線條。

在抽象形狀中置入現代提示

三宅一生也在系列當中置入了科技感的氛圍,利用經典的品牌輪廓線條結合充滿日系美學的配色和織物,製造出既衝突又和諧的概念交織。

Continuing on the itajime shibori road

Those scarves came to me with no colour.  Just pure white silk.  I used them to test acid dyes for a baby wrap, the results of which you can still see – the blue, yellow, purple, and magenta are from that era. 60 more words

Shibori

waiting for the thread to dry...

…is kind of like watching paint dry. Having finished off some orders in this heat I am able to get back to the vat today.  Dyeing a bit of this and that as needed.   460 more words

Some things take a long time to figure out.  I wondered about this quite some time ago while participating in one of Jude’s classes.  Then I set it aside. 25 more words
