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. Each Pleats Please garment is developed from a single thread with pleats added after the clothes have taken shape via a secret heat application technique. Here the technique is used to create a soft, portable backpack that magically expands to fit all your essentials. There’s a reason he’s called the grandfather of modern design.
The grandfather of modern design, progressive Japanese designer Issey Miyake had an infamous preoccupation with geometry and technology. Issey Miyake is hailed by artists, designers and fashion houses as one of the most influential creatives of the century, and was perhaps most famous for his eponymous boutique perfume line and lightweight, un-creasable clothing line, ‘Pleats Please’. He was also the man behind Steve Jobs’ black turtlenecks, the Lithuanian Olympic uniform in 1992, and the founder of his own design museum in Tokyo.
