Homme Plissé Issey Miyake Stages First Paris Artistic Presentation

ART ATTACK: Homme Plissé Issey Miyake staged its first artistic presentation in Paris, on Thursday night at the Centre Pompidou. Guests in attendance lined all four walls of a vast room there, which made up the “playground” that the designer had created along with concept and direction by Daniel Ezralow.
To wit, there was a line of rings and a dangling rope, plus a tightrope in place before the beginning of the performance, which featured gymnasts, dancers and models. It sprang to life after a bell was chimed solemnly and men sprinted across the space to begin dressing.
A group of them lined up sporting a selection of the streamlined pleated clothing that comes in a wide array of saturated colors, from the brand’s fall 2019 collection created by Miyake and his design studio, and demonstrated how pieces can be mixed and matched. Two guys sporting wider garb did an amazing balancing act on the tightrope.

Men walked, danced and ran around the room, filling it with a swirl of lush hues and an exuberant, joyful vibe. A high point was when some swung from the rings in ethereal, mesmerizing synchronized movement.

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake to Hold First Presentation in Paris

NEW PLEATS: Homme Plissé Issey Miyake, a men’s line from the Japanese designer, is holding its first presentation in Paris on Jan. 17.
Choreographed by Daniel Ezralow, the artistic presentation will take place at the Pompidou Center at 9 p.m., following the Issey Miyake show earlier in the day at 11 a.m. in the Palais de Tokyo. Ezralow choreographed a presentation for Homme Plissé Issey Miyake featuring the men’s gymnastics team of Aomori University in 2013. The Pompidou Center presentation will take place in same space as a recent exhibit on Japanese architect Tadao Ando, a large room with windows lining one side.
Homme Plissé Issey Miyake was established in 2013 as a masculine counterpart to Pleats Please, which was launched two decades prior. The clothing is meant to be light and comfortable, with uniform pleats to keep fabric from sticking too close to the skin.
Designed by Miyake and his teams, pieces to be featured in the presentation are part of the fall winter 2019 collection, with most of the items pleated after being cut and sewn. The line has been growing with an offer ranging from ath-leisure and casual style clothing to suits.
In another recent Paris performance, Issey Miyake opened the

Issey Miyake RTW Spring 2019

“Hands have been weaving, sewing and giving new shape to cloth. Yet, what if we could play with the shape more freely as if kneading dough or molding clay?” the show notes at Issey Miyake asked.
Never one to shy away from new textile techniques, designer Yoshiyuki Miyamae answered the question by creating looks with a new material, dubbed Dough Dough, whose shape can be modulated easily — with a twist or a crumple. One dress or hat may be transformed in a myriad of ways, as the models on the runway displayed with glee.
Hands also create art, like Issey Miyake’s design team did, painting with traditional Japanese brooms. The resulting patterns were morphed into prints, with some ink-jetted and others woven in jacquards used to construct the clothes. One simple, short-sleeved dress had smatterings of purple, pink, blue and green, reminiscent of an Impressionist painting. Wide-legged trousers were splashed with colorful, vertical lines and dabs, and a skirt came decorated with a patchworklike effect.
This wearable collection had a light, joyful spirit, heightened by whimsical hats made from brooms or the new fabric.

Selfridges Opens the World of Issey Miyake

MADE IN MIYAKE: Selfridges is furthering its relationship with the Japanese label Issey Miyake with a new shop-in-shop that opened in its Designer Galleries space on Tuesday, home to brands including Proenza Schouler, Rosetta Getty and Michael Lo Sordo.
The World of Issey Miyake boutique spans 506 square feet and stocks the brand’s main line as well as the Pleats Please and Bao Bao labels. It offers up to 180 pieces from the pre-fall 2017 and fall 2017 collections; reflecting a 20 percent increase in the retailer’s overall buy from last season.
Olivia McEwan, the store’s designer women’s wear buyer said the increase in the company’s seasonal buy was reflective of customer demand. “In past seasons, there was an increased demand from our customers for ready-to-wear pieces across the main line and Pleats Please that we were unable to satisfy due to stock availability,” said McEwan, adding that the brand is one of the best sellers across the department.

Met to Sell Alexander McQueen, Issey Miyake and Other Designer Products Inspired by ‘Manus x Machina’ Exhibition

NEW YORK — The opening of “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute is still a few weeks away, but limited-edition designer merchandise inspired by the exhibition has already been selected.
As of May 5, museum goers will find jewelry, handbags, scarves, stationery, books and postcards amidst the more than 150 items. As a nod to the fact that fashion insiders like to be first, the museum will launch the collection online May 2 to celebrate this year’s Met Ball that night. All of the merchandise will be offered in its Fifth Avenue main-floor store on May 5, timed to the official exhibition opening for the public.
Gleaning shopping preferences from the in-store assortment that was offered for last year’s blockbuster “China: Through the Looking Glass” show, The Met’s retail team is focusing on smaller items that retail for $ 500 or less. Small, lightweight items that are not cumbersome for tourists or out-of-towners to carry in their bags or stash in suitcases are consistently popular, according to a staffer in the museum’s retail division. Exclusive offerings include a $ 385 silk chiffon Alexander McQueen scarf. With prices ranging from $ 425 to $ 925, Issey
