Paris: Menswear director Yusuke Takahashi debuted his first collection for Issey Miyake with an artsy, print-focused presentation of silk separates with a subtle athletic edge. Simple, easy-fit suits came in oversized windowpane checks, colorful faded batik t-shirts were layered over digitized honeycomb shirting and Bermuda shorts looked youthful covered in a free-form, two-tone splatter. — Nina Stotler
