Vintage Issey Miyake Pleats Please Black and Ivory Harlequin Sculptural Dress
The Pleats Please line is perhaps Issey Miyake’s most notable archetypes of design. At its inception, the Pleats Please line was a reprisal of masterful fabric manipulation reinvented through a modern technological lens. This vintage Miyake dress is sculpted in a black and white checkerboard fabric.
A basic scoop neckline and sleeveless silhouette flow gently down into a handkerchief hem that creates a mesmerizing starburst effect on the undulating black and white squares. This bold hemline creates a one-of-a-kind trapeze line to this already immensely sculpted design.
The superior craftsmanship of this dress is evidenced by the seamlessly matched pattern at the waist. As per all of Miyake’s designs, this vintage dress is a must-have work of art that is a versatile addition to a curated or more eclectic wardrobe.
