Issey Miyake Colorblock Woven Ribbon Skirt, 1990s
Issey Miyake has a unique architectural aesthetic mixing concepts that typically would be avoided by most designers. Fine, micro-pleating, one of his favorites, is incorporated into nearly all of his designs. This skirt is fascinating as it is made from pleated satin ribbons of fuchsia, scarlet, red, burnt umber, cerulean, shamrock green, aubergine, black and lime.
The ribbons have been woven in order to create a checkerboard pattern all while gaining added texture and depth from the pleating. At just longer that a midi length, the skirt is slightly pegged allowing it to accentuate the hips while the thick verticals contrasting with the tiny pleats draw the eye upward giving the illusion of height.
