Vintage Issey Miyake Sapphire Blue Satin Ribbon Cage Dress, 1990s
Drawing inspiration from nature, futuristic Japanese designer Issey Miyake is known for his genius with form and fabric. His interest in perfecting folding techniques comes to life with this 90’s masterpiece, transforming the two dimensional into the three dimensional with the complex construction of this incredible ribbon cage dress.
Made from sapphire blue satin, closely stitched layers of ribbon create a pleasing textural rhythm throughout. Strategically placed sections of ribbons are stitched at intervals horizontally so that when the dress is worn, the ribbons create a see-through lattice around the body at the torso and upper thigh.
Hips: up to 36 inches
Length: 40 inches
From the 1991 Spring collection, this Miyake dress has wide satin straps and a low-cut, square neckline. The open lattice work brings a risqué feel and lightness to this knee length dress, offering a nice juxtaposition to the sumptuous fabric. A wearable work of art, this dress will draw attention whatever the occasion, and certainly is, as Miyake once said of his clothes, a tool for the “wearers creativity."
In excellent condition, this glamorous Issey Miyake dress 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.
