Issey Miyake's "Pleats Please" - highlight of Vogue's Fashion's Night Out
Vogue's Fashion's Night Out, the biggest to date, offered an abundance of launches, parties and exhibitions, with complimentary drinks, goodie bags and live music thrown in – our highlight of the night had to be the innovative Issey Miyake’s ‘Pleats Please’ private event.
The Japanese fashion designer, renowned not only for his technology-driven clothing lines, but also for exhibitions and fragrances, was celebrating the launch of his new book, which in turn pays tribute to the designer’s ardor for pleating.
On arrival, guests were welcomed with velvety Clarendelle wines and immediately struck by Miyake’s indulgent creations, fuelled by the manipulation of textiles and eye-catching colour. Fashion Mode favourites included a 90’s nude coloured jumpsuit, printed with images of magnified eyes from a sculpture by Tim Hawkinson and a structural, asymmetric blue and black skirt with a tough wide buckle. The store looked fantastic and admirers perused the collections before gravitating to the star of the show – copies of Miyake’s new publication. A study of the revolutionary concept of pleating, the book reveals the ethical reasoning, evolution of processing techniques, and true value of design that has contributed to the growth of an iconic brand.
Downstairs saw photographers, journalists and the fashion crowd sit back on leather seating, enjoying the delicious cocktails and praising the pleated menswear pieces in black and charcoal grey, at once versatile and lustrous. Also on show were Issey Miyake’s sophisticated fragrances and embossed cosmetic bags in a dramatic nearly-neon colour scheme from the Bao Bao Issey Miyake collection.
