Finally it’s happened! Issey Miyake, the Japanese fashion house, has dedicated an exclusive flagship outlet to its Homme Plisse Issey Miyake line!
The store, first in the world to be dedicated to the line, extends over an area of 225 square metres and is located at Tokyo’s shopping suburb Aoyama.
Globally acclaimed designer Tokujin Yoshioka has designed the store.
The rear of the store houses press and sewing machines as well as pleating machines, which gives the visitors an opportunity to see the label’s unique production method namely seihin pleats. In this method, pleats are made in fabric that is cut and sewn to 1.5 times the normal size.
