Issey Miyake Fette Black Organza Cape Top
Japanese designer, Issey Miyake, is among the most recognizable practitioners of fashion. Readily incorporating advanced pleating techniques, Miyake erases the lines drawn between art and fashion. Drawing on a mixture of technology and sculptural innovation, Miyake’s work is equally acclaimed on the runway and in the gallery.
With complex volumetric pleating, this cape showcases Miyake’s process. Done in a black organza, the cape creates a pyramid shaped silhouette about the body whilst playing with transparency and the reflection of light. The armholes offer a point of focus as they hang lower than arms’ length showcasing the zig-zagging diagonals of the pleating work. This cape is undoubtedly a statement piece underscoring a delicate intricacy that bears with it a peculiar sense of Gothicism.
