Dazed & Confused 'Pleat Please' Pays Tribute to Designer Issey Miyake

The Dazed & Confused 'Pleat Please' online feature pays tribute to Issey Miyake, a Japanese fashion designer known for his technology-driven clothing designs, exhibitions and fragrances. In particular, it focuses on his Pleat Please pieces that stunningly melded together the worlds of high-tech science and avant-garde Japanese design. Inspired by the sighting of a beautifully creased handkerchief back in the '80s, Miyake has since spawned a fabric that continues to stand the test of time.

Colorful and contemporary, the Dazed & Confused Pleat Please online feature shows how this vintage-style material can be worn in present day. Photographed by Alex Sainsbury and styled by Robbie Spencer, the outfits were complemented by multi-hued hairstyles courtesy of Alex Brownsell.
