Talented and experimental Japanese designer Issey Miyake recently put together a fashion collection for Spring/Summer 2016 that incorporated fabrics and garments that had creatively been baked in the oven. The process of cooking the material added a dynamic and structured look to the fashion pieces in the womenswear line.

The material used in the Spring/Summer 2016 collection was specially designed to react when in contact with heat. The fabric featured texturized waved patterns that are embossed into the material using a glue material while color is added by placing it in the spaces between the waves. Once baked, the waves of glue expand and harden in shape creating 3D textures. The baked material was then used to create structured shirts, tops and skirts for the collection.
