Incredible 1990s Issey Miyake Pleated Red Top & Skirt Ensemble


Issey Miyake is acclaimed for his awe-inspiring avant-garde designs that frequently make use of pleating and interesting plays with space and volume. While Issey Miyake continues to create incredible sculptural designs, the 1990s boasted some of his most iconic work. This gorgeous top and skirt ensemble is made from a crimson micro-pleated fabric that has been assembled along a spiral with an overall pencil silhouette.

The top begins with a small V neckline at the front and back of the bodice and features incredible vertical pleating at the shoulders that creates drop sleeves. The long sleeves extend past the wrists while the pleats create a fascinating sculptural spiral around the upper arms that is mirrored throughout the design. From a thin waistband, the skirt gently hugs the hips and then begins its spiral descent to the ankles. The angle of the seaming paired with the pleats showcases a soft gleam that elevates this set’s futuristic aesthetic.
