Issey Miyake purple dress.
Pre-owned, in good vintage condition.
PLEATS PLEASE by Issey Miyake have developed their own sizing standard which does not translate to traditional sizing charts. The garments by PLEATS PLEASE follow a sizing standard within the length of the garment only and do not differ in width. The reasoning behind this standard is due to the amount of fabric which is used prior to the garment becoming pleated. The material is stretchy which makes the top very forgiving and suitable for multiple sizes, fitting from range from S-L.
Model's height is 1,78m for reference.
Issey Miyake (°1938) is a Japanese fashion designer. During the 80's he began experimenting with new methods of pleating that would allow both flexibility of movement for the wearer as well as ease of care and production. The garments are cut and sewn first, then sandwiched between layers of paper and fed into a heat press, where they are pleated. The fabric’s memory holds the pleats and when the garments are liberated from their paper cocoon, they are ready to wear.
Styled with an Issey Miyake turtleneck available here.
