    That coat is sensational! Your statement pieces are always such beautiful works of art.

    Somehow I am used to seeing “pleats please” only worn by older women (and generally smaller pieces, boleros, scarves, etc.) – I never figured out why?; At any rate that looks great on you, I am loving that uncanny volume and the shades!

      As far as I’m aware, Issey Miyake fans are generally older ladies who presumably have been loyal to him since decades ago, not to mention that the Pleats Please line has a general matronly vibe. It is not as recognised as CdG nor Yohji except for its perfume line, so I think the label is in desperate need of revitalisation.

    Breathtaking! I recently stumbled across your blog and took to your archives. I love how your style has evolved over the years. I would love to see a post about how you developed your current fashion direction and how you incorporate some of your older pieces into your new look.

    Because they do not want to make any kind of publicity, as some of the PP staff told me “they are scared the line could become trendy and thus loose its “traveling trough time” value “…… I’m a 38 years old woman and I have been wearing PP for 20 years now (I bought my first pants with my first intern pay !). True, the other woman I see in my local (Paris) shop are + 60 years old woman. Again blame the un-communication un-strategy team …..

      Hello, thank you very much for leaving your comment and valuable insight. I can only hope that the marketing team is able to find a good marketing formula to sustain the market with adequate communication efforts otherwise there won’t be new customers, which would be a nightmare because I’d love for the company to keep making beautiful products.

      I look forward to more perspective and insights from you on Issey Miyake in the future. Many thanks again
