Tag "Pleats Please"


Born from a
Pleats Please experiment, the Issey Miyake cult bag has been ‘baptized’ as an independent project with the name BaoBao only in the 2000, a symbolic tribute to the futuristic Guggheneim Museum of Bilbao, designed by the Canadian architecture Frank O. Gehry and opened in the 1997.

A not casual connection with Gehry work that highlights the ambitions and the awareness of having constructed an object with an high level of beauty and innovation.

Starting from a traditional principle such as the origami, and form a primary inlay, the Issey Miyake Maison develops a prototype with unlimited plastic potentials. The PVC plates joined together with new mathematic-textile techniques, shape a changeable accessory, that model itself according to its content, to the way how is wore, or even just how is put down. In a constant game of shapes and reflections, the colours are enhanced by the gleams that the PVC itself catches and reflects.

It is also treated at the same level of the best vehicle bodies, in fact the small triangular modulus undergoes to the same spectacular and indelible painting of the Lexus cars, excellence of the well-known Japanese brand Toyota, in a twinning thinkable only by the Miyake ideational farsightedness.

Every tiny particular of this object refers to the complexity hidden behind its designing. Moreover, thanks to the sophisticated proprietary technologies developed by the Maison, it’s rooted out the recurring problem of the production waste (here completely non-existent) and the final product becomes an unique ensemble, sheltered from badly realised clones and replicas.

The umpteenth genius strike of Issey Miyake that, through Bao Bao line, with its different models from bags to the more basic key holder, made again accessible and wearable the joy of colour and the limitless expressive possibilities of shapes.

Comme, des, Garçons, Cape, SS 2015

Comme des Garçons abstract pea coat similar to a short cape made of technical treated polyester overlapping fabric layers , flared sleeve, raw cut trimmings, strap buckle closure on the neck.

From the cold bi-dimensional light of the white colour to the tridimensional shades of the chiaroscuro, the Spring/Summer 2015 makes its debut online under new spotlights.

A turning point revealing openly an heartfelt need to amplify that narrative difference expressed by the garments composing our catalogue. An attempt to give life, longer than the static time of a flash, to the possible worlds of Rei Kawakubo-Comme des Garçons, Daniela Gregis, Yohji Yamamoto, Forme D’Expression but also the less well-known new-entries as Un-Namable, to the more renowned proposals of Vivienne Westwood.

Trying to compensate for the less light with thousands of photos available, we invite you to reflect more, to observe and, who knows, finally to bring nearer the same evocative atmosphere of the shop in Padua.

Summer time, holiday time, time for yourself. Departures time and packing time. For this new tour through our summer suggestions we took inspiration from that pre-departure trepidation, recurrent on this season, typical of those days preceding the long-awaited holiday. We imagined our clothes going on vacation, putting them into different hypothetical luggage. It doesn’t matter which will be your destination. A relaxed evening at the sunset on the seashore or a more reckless backpacking day in the mountains, a walk through the ancient splendour of a city of art or a crowded afternoon in the streets of a modern metropolis, we tried to adapt our choices to different holiday scenarios in order to make the clothes good traveling companions in every journey you will decide to embark on. As well a chance to mix up for you the items on sale, putting them under a new light and revealing the possible and various combinations. Enjoy it and above all enjoy your holidays!

Pants Pleats Please

The title chosen for the Pleats Please winter collection is a tribute to the work of the most prominent Mexican architect, Luis Barragàn.

Abstract shapes and lively multicoloured designs on bags, trousers, dresses and sweaters strongly recall that lush and surreal Mexico interpreted by the architecture of the master from Jalisco. The vast wall surfaces painted with bright colors, often crossed by unexpected cracks that offer glimpses of fountains of crystal clear water, are echoed by Issey Miyake’s most famous pleats.

The designer has always personally designed Pleats Please, a range which has always been the subject of his most joyous fantasies. Every season it is devolped by following a guiding theme. If, in the past, the most representative paintings of the Italian Renaissance embraced the entire silhouette in the form of dresses and t-shirts, now the inspiration is clearly Barragàn’s Mexico.

The deep pink of flourishing tropical bougainvillea, the yellow gold of the earth and the bright local houses, or the crisp blue of the cloudless sky and the sparkling blue of the clear waters, dissolve in the volumes of clothing and accessories in high-tech textiles.

Detail T-shirt Pleats Please

In fact, each garment is initially cut and sewn on flat fabric, it is only later, thanks to the extremely advanced techniques that have been patented by the well-known Japanese Maison, that it undergoes the pleating process. In addition to allowing extreme volumetric plasticity, this unique pleating remains intact over time. It is so practical that it can be machine washed and transported anywhere, as it always keeps its shape.
