Issey Miyake Pleated Blue Polka Dot Dress & Jacket Set

$1,700

Futuristic Japanese designer Issey Miyake is a master of form and fabric, known for creating beautiful sculptural garments that pay homage to the past while bringing us somewhere new and enchanting. Special attention to the fabrics and materials used allow Miyake to create spectacular garments that rely upon unique volumes and textures.

Presumably from 2007, this Issey Miyake Fête dress and jacket set is a fine example of Miyake’s interest in folding techniques and desire to create pleated garments that move. Done in a deep blue polyester, an ideal fabric for pleating, the set features a pattern of large and small midnight blue velour polka dots, a material that was incorporated in many Fête designs.

The dress begins with a square neckline framed by two slender straps, the open décolletage bringing a nice lightness to the midi-length silhouette. The plisse fabric offers a pleasing textural rhythm throughout while following the natural lines of the body, flowing from bodice to a subtle high-low hem that reaches several inches above the ankles. The velour polka dots add another layer of texture and richness, giving this dress more of an autumnal feel despite the open neckline and sheer elements.

The simplicity of this dress allows the accompanying jacket to take center stage with its exquisite Avant Garde silhouette and dramatic high-low hem. Done in the same micro pleated sheer polyester featuring velour polka dots, the open front jacket begins with a shawl neckline and long sleeves.

The back of the jacket is another story altogether, with the two panels that comprise the jacket curving outward from the center back seam and extending nearly to the knee in a point at the front on each side. An elegant addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this incredible and rare Issey Miyake dress and jacket set is the perfect choice for an evening soiree or special occasion.

This Issey Miyake Fête dress is lined and slips on over the head for easy wear. The accompanying jacket is unlined and has no closures. In excellent condition, this Issey Miyake dress and jacket set has been professionally eco dry cleaned and pressed. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
