Issey Miyake, Midori Kitamura
Issey Miyake’s Pleats Please collections were launched in 1993. Made from single pieces of high quality 100% polyester fabric, Pleats Please clothing is innovative in its process: the clothes are first cut and sewn together from fabric that is nearly three times larger than the finished item of clothing, then sandwiched between sheets of paper and hand fed into a pleats machine. The concept of Pleats Please Issey Miyake is explored through a vast array of texts and images, tracing its journey from inception, through material development, to its public reception. The explanation of its evolution includes a section not only revealing the creation of the original thread―but also the pleating process!
French/English/German - 576 Pages - 21.01 cm x 4.5 cm x 25.5 cm - 2.20 Kg
