Pleated sleeveless top in black and white print by Issey Miyake.
Issey Miyake (1938) is a Japanese fashion designer. 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. This item is part of the PLEATS PLEASE line. The graphics, depicting kitchenware essentials, are a playful spin on an iconic house-trademark piece.
