Motion Colors Culottes

Pleats Please

Is it a skirt? Is it a pant? We like to keep them guessing in Pleats Please's epic culottes. Featuring a high rise with an elasticized waist, side slit pockets and gorgeous pleated ruffles throughout. 

First launched as a subset of the main ISSEY MIYAKE collection in 1989, the Pleats Please line grew until it finally became a brand of its own in 1994. Pleats Please garments feature a unique "garment pleating" technique where the materials are developed from a single thread and pleats are added after sewing the clothes into shape.

Pleats Please combines 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.
