Miyake uses his experiences with textiles as inspiration for his designs. This comes through in the patterns that he used in his 2017 collection. Miyake played with different textiles which help to create his kaleidoscopic patterns.
Miyake’s lack of focus on accessories allows for the audience to pay attention to every detail presented in his designs. This emphasis on the detailing in the designs is furthered with simple hairstyles paired with headbands that match. This helps to bring the ensemble together while not taking the attention off of the each element of the designs that make them unique.
