Issey Miyake’s Homme Plissé line, birthed in 2013 to develop the Japanese designer’s signature pleating technique through a menswear label, has experienced a resurgence of late and it’s not hard to see why. The widespread embrace of the brand in fashion is perhaps owing to its collections being ultra-wearable and able to be styled with ease.
Homme Plissé pieces celebrate timeless menswear cuts, but do them with a difference. Take the Grey Basics Polo , available at retailer SSENSE. It’s a shirt shape we’re all well familiar with, but still unmistakably Issey. The trademark pleat is also continued in accessories; this tote is a must for summer getaways.
Homme Plissé is basics done better. The fabrics are wrinkle-proof, light, and quick-drying. Each garment is pleated at uniform width to ensure they don’t cling to the skin, allowing the wearer to stay active in style.
