It's always a pleasure having our friends from NYC visit us. This past week Elena and William stopped by to give us a tutorial on the genius of the Issey Miyake brand.
These two shared fountains of information on the complex technology and innovations behind some of the more iconic Miyake fabrics. Whether produced from their own cultivated silk worms or recycled polyester fibre, their unique in-house cloth is woven, sewn, dyed and pleated to create garments that are beautiful, versatile and comfortable. Bonus: this is the perfect travelling wardrobe - scrunched in a suitcase and most often machine-washable . . . form meets function meets Japanese craftsmanship.
