I have loved Issey Miyake's designs eversince the early 1980s. I started buying Issey Miyake Vogue Designer patterns at that time, andmy mother (she was a superb dressmaker - she used all couture finishes) would make them up. I did make an Issey Miyake jacket myself in 1981 and I still wear it because it is both classic and edgy. To add to these garments (yes, I have kept them), I have acquired 4 Issey Miyake Pleats Pleaz garments on the last 3 trips to the Northern Hemisphere (including this one), and being timeless I will be able to wear them forever. I call this investment buying! They also pack up to nothing when travelling! When I went into the Hanover Store I asked if I could photograph for my blog and they were very happy for me to do so.
