Issey Miyake Blue Pleated Maxi Evening Dress Marbled Lucite Belt


Known for his innovation in fabric manipulation and intricate detailing through pleating, Issey Miyake sought to not only create clothing that interacted with the wearer, but also aimed to merge Eastern and Western aesthetics in fashion. With a number of different lines, Miyake experiments with different techniques and concepts proving his continued ingenuity. From his Fete line, this alluring evening gown is made from a double-layered indigo georgette rife with Miyake signature pleating.

The pleating is rhythmic, drawing the eyes upward where the décolletage is emphasized by the radiating lines that work around the dresses pronounced V-neckline.As the dress moves around the shoulders it plunges into an inverted, pointed-arch shape in the back. Adding to the hypnotic indigo goddess feel, this dress is accompanied by a belt done in angular pieces of marbled lucite that is woven together with strands of metallic blue cording. Contemporary and classic, this Miyake evening dress is a mystical take of elegant style.
