White Pleats Please Basic Top, by Issey Miyake

Visionary Japanese designer Issey Miyake launched his namesake womenswear label in 1971. A fashion industry pioneer for nearly half a century, the brand roots its design philosophies in technical ingenuity, creative experimentation, and utilitarianism. Miyake’s dedication to innovation in design—especially textile engineering—can be seen in his groundbreaking pleating technique, debuting in the brand’s Pleats Please line in 1993.

Easy and casual shirts, jackets, and trousers are made avant-garde through subtly sculptural silhouettes, vibrant colorblocking, and the label’s signature pleats.

These clothes combine functionality - they’re light and wrinkle-proof, they don’t need to be dry-cleaned, and they can be folded to a compact size for easy storage and carrying - with a versatility that makes them suitable for all settings in your daily life.

Comfortable and beautiful too, these clothes have become deeply entrenched in the daily lives of modern women. This brand reflects Issey Miyake’s fundamental concept that “design is not for philosophy, but for life,” and continues to evolve today.

- Material: 100% POLYESTER (KNIT); Pleats Please garments are made from 100% polyester, as this is the ideal fabric to hold pleats. Each garment is created by first cutting and sewing the garment together, before it goes through a heat-pleating system. This ensures the pleats are permanent.

- As new. Excellent condition. No signs of wear.

- Size 3 (read below & see size chart attached)

- SIZING: The Pleats Please range does not translate directly to traditional sizing charts, but rather follows a 1-5 size range that reflects the length of the garment rather than the width.
Each piece of Pleats Please begins as a wide piece of material that is pleated once the garment has been constructed. The amount of fabric used, along with the incorporation of elasticated waistbands, allows the garment to stretch horizontally and fit most sizes. Thus, only the length differs between sizes, with around 2.5-3cm difference from one size to the next.
Therefore, regardless of your regular dress size, Pleats Please garments should be chosen by desired length.
