The work of the French fashion photographer Francis Giacobetti has been featured in Vogue and other publications since the 1960s. In the 1970s, he began an ongoing project, photographing portraits of the people who are representative of the 20th century.
Between 1999 to 2001 and 2012 to the latest season, ISSEY MIYAKE INC. commissioned Giacobetti to shoot promotional photographs of PLEATS PLEASE. With dancers as his models, he was able to capture the changing expressions of PLEATS PLEASE with each dancer's movement, and this work culminated in a striking series that showcased PLEATS PLEASE's radiant palette and prints.

Special “PRISM” exhibition is a live event space where one can experience through images and sound the attraction and power lying even in the details of these photographs, almost like being inside a prism. Enjoy flexible forms created by garments, rich material and color expressions, and moments overflowing with vitality of dancers stretching to every part of the body.

PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE : CONCEPT

'Pleats' was introduced into ISSEY MIYAKE in 1989, and has been developed every season thereafter. By 1993, it was ready to be launched as a complete and stand-alone brand and appeared as PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE for the Spring-Summer collection.
This is a line that is positioned to embody one of the most fundamental concepts of Issey Miyake - where the true value of design lies in its integration into the everyday life and comfort of the wearer. This is clearly demonstrated in the development and evolution of traditional techniques of processing and of pleating material into a highly functional modern product - light in weight and easy to wear and handle. This revolutionary concept has won the respect and admiration of women throughout the world and contributed to the growth of an iconic brand - an ingenious fusion of creation, technology and business.
