Any man in the world will agree that the Issey Miyake Homme Plissé brand is responsible for the most chic garments a man can wear. It’s the absolute simplicity. The sense of practicality, the maturity of tailoring, all of these in pleated fabrics whose textures look like something super-human.
In fact, I will never forget my very first fashion week in Paris, when I used to go out to see fashion people walk on the street. I literally took a picture of a gentleman wearing a pleated costume from the brand, I figured out it came from the iconic Issey Miyake Homme Plissé brand and saved up to get my own pair of black pleated trousers.
The AW21 collection seems like a reflection about fundamentals. It’s really about those perfect pieces that distinguish the brand from anything else out there. The film presentation made me skip a heartbeat with the scenes of the pleating machines that are used to create the garments. Absolutely from the future, it makes you want to live in the future.
