Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - THE STYLE -

The re­cent sea­sons have wit­nessed the re­turn of sharp ac­cor­dion pleats—Alessan­dro Michele, for ex­am­ple, clad his tribe of quirky Gucci in­génues with ver­sions in shiny lamé. But if there’s a dif­fer­ent form of pleat­ing that de­serves a sec­ond glance, it’d be plissé pleat­ing. A light­weight fab­ric of count­less dense folds, it is most closely linked to Issey Miyake, the rev­o­lu­tion­ary Ja­panese de­sign­erde­sign who turned the fab­ric into gar­ments that com­bined both h form and func­tion. Plissé pleat­ing re­quires lit­tle main­te­nance— nance— mak­ing it per­fect for the chic ur­ban no­mad who wants ants to seek new ad­ven­tures with­out for­sak­ing style. And what bet­ter way to em­bark on one than with a handy dy pleated coat, a skirt with pre­cise origami-like e pan­els and san­dals that re­call the el­e­gance of a tra­di­tional Ja­panese Ja­pane­nese dance?
