Issey Miyake and his design team have been experimenting with and refining their pleating technique since 1988. The groundbreaking method - by which pleats are applied after the fabric is cut and sewn - is a revolutionary departure from traditional process. The first examples were presented in the ISSEY MIYAKE Spring/Summer 1989 collection. Since that time, the process has been refined and expanded to include basic items such as t-shirts. In 1993, the culmination of Miyake’s research, PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE, made its debut as elegant yet versatile clothing that offered its wearer both comfort as well as beauty. The clothing is easy to care for, store, and travel with; and offers a choice of colors, patterns and shapes that make full use of the lightweight polyester knitted fabric. PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE is a premier example of “clothing as a product,” something that responds to the evolving needs of a demanding lifestyle and continues to please and delight its wearers.
