Pleats Please by Issey Miyake is an offshoot label launched in 1988 as a capsule collection under the iconic Japanese fashion house ISSEY MIYAKE. The popularity of the uniquely pleated garments, which are light, wrinkle-proof, and do not need to be dry-cleaned, led to the birth of the diffusion label as a stand-alone line in 1994.

Combining function and form, Issey Miyake Pleats Please garments appear in bright colors and fun silhouettes, and are ideal for travel lovers and jet-setters with limited storage space, though they’re suitable for all settings of daily life. This reflects Issey Miyake’s foundational concept that “design is not for philosophy, but for life.

To maintain your pleated garment in its best condition, the brand recommends that the garment be washed after each wear. If the pleats fade or the garment becomes wrinkled from sitting or folding, apply moisture by spraying gently, restore the pleats to their original state, then lay flat and allow to dry naturally. Some crushed pleats are normal during the original manufacturing process, which is done after sewing, not before.
