Pleats Please by Issey Miyake

Pleats Please by Issey Miyake is a collection made with a unique garment pleating technique, where the materials are developed from a single thread and pleats are added after sewing the clothes into shape. First launched under the Issey Miyake line in 1989, Pleats Please grew until it finally became a brand of its own with the launch of the 1994 collection. These clothes combine functionality - they're light and wrinkle-proof, they don't need to be dry-cleaned, and they can be folded to a compact size for easy storage and carrying - with a versatility that makes them suitable for all settings in daily life. The brand reflects Issey Miyake's fundamental concept that "design is not for philosophy, but for life," and continues to evolve today.
