Issey Miyake Pleats Please

128 Wooster St.
New York, NY 10012
It's difficult to summarize Miyake's contributions to fashion, particularly with respect to his innovations on the manufacturing side (for example his APOC collectionaeach item is a piece of cloth cut from a massive bolt and can be configured in a number of intriguing ways). No question, the avant-garde is not for everyone, but Miyake's Pleats Please collection has a surprisingly broad appeal. These curious pieces are, obviously, pleated, but so deeply and permanently that they almost seem made of folded paper. Definitely worth seeing.
