Issey Miyake Pleats Please

128 Wooster St. New York, NY 10012 | Soho | 212-226-3600

Location Description:

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.
