This wintery release from Pleats Please Issey Miyake comes in a palette of icy, cool and regal dark blues designed to be mixed on a whim. This full sleeve, drapey open cardigan has the same silhouette as Pleats Please 'basic' cardigan. Issey Miyake’s humble ambition to make practical, washable, lightweight crease-free clothing has driven him to create some of the world’s most extraordinary creations. Pleats are added to each garment after the clothes have taken shape via a secret heat application technique. Ageless, genderless, and trans-seasonal, these garments are wrinkle-proof, machine-washable, and travel-friendly. There’s a reason he’s called the grandfather of modern design.
The grandfather of modern design, progressive Japanese designer Issey Miyake has an infamous preoccupation with geometry and technology. Now 77, Issey Miyake is hailed by artists, designers and fashion houses as one of the most influential creatives of the century, and is perhaps most famous for his eponymous boutique perfume line and lightweight, un-creasable clothing line, ‘Pleats Please’. He’s also the man behind Steve Jobs’ black turtlenecks, the Lithuanian Olympic uniform in 1992, and most recently, the founder of his own design museum in Tokyo. Issey Miyake Bao Bao is one of many pet projects, and was established in 2000.
