Issey Miyake is known for his pleats, and has built his reputation partly through his Pleats Please line that features the delicate texture, all made from durable polyester that doesn’t wrinkle, shrink or constrict. He’s made pleats an option for both men and women, in a variety of styles that are fashion forward and impressively wearable. The elegant and simple design he’s known for has won over many fans — most notably the late Steve Jobs, who stocked his wardrobe with hundreds of Miyake black turtlenecks. The fluidity of Issey Miyake’s iconic pleats is paid tribute in this SSENSE video created by the art studio of Thomas Traum. Translating these classic pleats through a modern and surreal lens into a thing of beauty, enjoy the fashion-fuelled trip in the video above.
