Pleats Please ISSEY MIYAKE
Pleats Please is a collection of clothes that are a product in themselves, 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 in the ISSEY MIYAKE line in 1989, this pleats line grew until it finally became a brand of its own with the launch of the SPRING SUMMER 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 your daily life. Comfortable and beautiful too, these clothes have become deeply entrenched in the daily lives of modern women. This brand reflects Issey Miyake's fundamental concept that "design is not for philosophy, but for life," and continues to evolve today.
me ISSEY MIAKE / CAULIFLOWER
Launched in the Spring / Summer 2001 collection, the concept of ‘me ISSEY MIYAKE’ is to make lightweight, compact, comfortable to wear and easy to care for clothing - fashions crafted to accentuate the pleasure of everyday living. Continuing in its quest to develop materials that are a joy to wear, ‘me ISSEY MIYAKE’ presents clothing in richly varied colors and patterns that are perfectly suited to various scenes throughout the year. Known as “me ISSEY MIYAKE” within Asia, the collection is sold under the brand name ‘CAULIFLOWER’ in Europe and the United States - a playful reference to one of the major fabric techniques and products within the collection.
