As Mr Miyake would say: Pleats, please!
This month marks the first official day of spring, which means there’s a sudden urge to reach for florals and flounces. Known as a chicer option for the new solstice, pleats of varying shapes and sizes are standing out given its texture and movement. Celebrated for its powerful and versatile styling tool, it’s time to ditch that cropped denim and make Miyake’s favourite garment your daily uniform.
Paying homage to the brand’s 30th anniversary, Pleats Pleats Issey Miyake is pushing the boundaries of pleats. Since the launch of the brand in 1993, the fashion house has modernised pleats and created pieces that are full of freedom as well as joy. The founder of the brand, Japanese designer Issey Miyake, pioneered the modern and magical world of pleating that involves paper and heat to create razor-sharp, origami-like folds.
Even before his death, Miyake has always researched, experimented and innovated to push design forward and make fashion history. So, it’s no surprise that after many years, they’ve found and curated the perfect fabric for their pleating pieces.
Light, soft, and sheen, the brand have developed wrinkle-resistant, static electricity-resistant, comfortable, and easy-to-care fabrics. The best part? The garments can be rolled up and carried compactly making it the perfect destination-worthy piece. Made to be worn for everyday life and soirees, the chic pieces allow ease for movements and can be adapted to any body type.
