Issey Miyake Black Satin Ribbon Cage Maxi Skirt, 1991
This Spring/Summer 1991 Runway Issey Miyake Ribbon Midi Skirt is all about turning the two-dimensional into three-dimensional. Through innovative techniques and fabric manipulation, Issey Miyake never fails to deliver interesting ways to make this happen. This Miyake skirt is made with obsidian black satin ribbon stitched at intervals horizontally so that when the skirt is worn, the ribbons create a lattice around the body.
The see-through nature of this design gives a lighter feel to the midi skirt. The waist has a wide opening that is designed to be cinched to the wearers body. A black ribbon belt comes with this garment, but another belt can definitely be worn. The cinching of the fabric around the waist adds to the texture of the dress around the hips making the wearer a modern sculpture from waist to toe. This skirt is a rare and highly collectable piece that showcases the ingenuity of Miyake’s work as well as being a statement piece to add to your wardrobe.
