MIHARA YASUHIRO DIGITAL LEOPARD
Leopard pattern re-created digitally using a customized Reaction-Diffusion algorithm
Japanese fashion designer and “King of Sneakers” Mihara Yasuhiro wanted a completely new approach to animal patterns as a key element in his AW14 collection. In a painstaking and iterative process, Reaction-Diffusion algorithms were customized to re-create leopard patterns in a natural,
almost supernatural way.
Though it is known that the patterns of leopards, panthers, and others are formed in nature from the Reaction-Diffusion system of geometry, this was the first time that one of these patterns had been successfully re-created and implemented commercially.
