In the Asian tradition, the fabric is at the center of design, not the figure. The designer brought this self-evidence to the West. Miyake had models pinned on the catwalk, which were wrapped in wild textile sculptures. The designer there started to make works of art out of people. western fashion designers put the body at the center of their designs and tried to make the person wearing the clothing appear as advantageous as possible, Miyake thought the human body was not the object, but only the medium of clothes. Instead of tracing or emphasizing the body lines like the other designers, he broke through them. His clothes consist of rectangular shapes, of pleated circles lined up, and he always lets the wearer some freedom in how to style it.
Issey Miyake’s experimental permanent pleating technique was first used by him in 1988 and now defines the celebrated designer’s contemporary menswear line Homme Plissé Issey Miyake collection, which was founded by him in 2013, which includes these unique pair of trousers.
Being brainchild of the Japanese designer, the technically driven pleated pants are the perfect combo of sporty aesthetics and avant-garde stylings with a unique texture that makes them stand out in any occasion.
