Issey Miyake‘s pleat-centric menswear line, Homme Plissé Issey Miyake, always mirrors the Japanese brand’s aim to create comfortable, effortless daily wearables, a simple goal that feels well suited to the current climate. Who wouldn’t want to get dressed without having to think about it? As such, the understated shapes and approachable cuts presented for Fall/Winter 2021 fit the bill for the mood of today, offering just enough drama to avoid the constraints of familiarity.
This free-flowing approach to style is exemplified by Miyake’s famous pleated textile, an elastic wonder that never loses shape or wrinkles and fits comfortable in numerous climates. This go-round, there are trim coats, cropped blazers, crisp shirting and loose, tapered trousers in hues both neutral and bold. Yarn-dyed pleats yield vivid patterns and elements of recycled polyester add feel-good flair to the zippered jackets, adjustable jumpsuits, creased shorts and woven sweaters. Trim shoulder bags and packs accompany the seasonal staples, rounding out a complete Homme Plissé wardrobe.
