For Homme Plissè Issey Miyake we saw a collection of garments intended to liberate the men who wear them in “A Walk in the Park.” Based on the Issey Miyake’s study of pleating since 1988, the collection explored the technique as both a practical and aesthetic design element that creates beauty and ease of movement in clothing. Presented outdoors in a playful, celebratory setting, a rainbow spectrum created a cheerful palette for relaxed-fitting looks ranging from leisurely shorts and t-shirts, to dressier looks, like the blue blazer worn with a white under shirt and muted lime pants. Incorporated into nearly every look, a soft accordion pleat was seen on pieces like blazers, trousers, and button up shirts, as well as a ribbed knitwear iteration that mimicked the technique. The collection also featured a series of flowing gaucho-style pants and several takes on a kimono in blue, green, yellow, or red print.
