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. 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.
Issey Miyake has an infamous preoccupation with geometry and technology. Hailed by artists, designers and fashion houses as one of the most influential creatives of the century, Miyake is 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.
