Everyday, One of a Kind Now and Hereafter – HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE Spring/Summer 2024

Dear Shaded Viewers,

There was a buzz of anticipation at the HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE with colourful pleated garments suspended from the awe-inspiring nave of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. A black clad team began unfurling a colossal roll of pleated paper. Garments were concealed between the layers of white paper.

A team adorned in black revealed the garments sandwiched between the two layers intertwining the pleating process with the show’s scenography. This meticulously orchestrated fusion elevated the art of pleating to new heights of refinement, an integral part of HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE’s creative narrative. Every model was dressed in the meticulously crafted garments, connecting the rhythm of everyday life effortlessly with the scenography.
