Issey Miyake

Legendary Japanese designer Issey Miyake debuted his eponymous womenswear label in 1971, charting a half century of work in fashion. Consistently an industry pioneer, Miyake’s clothing blends traditional Japanese techniques with forward-thinking technology. The brand is famous for their pleating technique which led to the debut of Pleats Please in 1993. Much of Miyake’s work has an architectural edge, seen in sculptural silhouettes and clothing with distinct purpose. Vivid prints, advanced pattern making, and a devotion to creative exploration are hallmarks of this endlessly inspiring fashion house.
