Avant-garde fashion brand Issey Miyake first launched its pleats please line in 1993, offering fashion-forward women a new and innovative sense of style through modern silhouettes created with intricately pleated fabrics. Little over two decades later Homme Plissé was launched, a fashionable equivalent for men with a similar fashion perspective. Issey Miyake has now pushed this men’s line into the global limelight with the opening of a dedicated boutique in Daikanyama, a shopping district in Tokyo known for its abundance of independent fashion boutiques. Situated amidst the neighbourhood’s maze of alleyways, the Homme Plissé Issey Miyake store occupies a two-storey, and slightly trapezoid, concrete building.
The interior design, created by acclaimed Tokyo-based designer Naoto Fukasawa, makes brilliant use of the building’s concrete shell. Thin black beams have been inserted, in a different pattern on each floor, and creating an intriguing spatial effect. These beams simultaneously serve as clothing racks. Additional furnishings are sparse, and features a single display and a staircase that visually blends into the playful interplay of the aformentioned beams. The new Homme Plissé Issey Miyake boutique carries the full range of men’s apparel items
