Taschen's latest release tells the story of Issey Miyake's 1993 "Pleats Please" collection, widely seen as a revolutionary development in fashion technology. Written by Midori Kitamura, a former employee of the designer, the book's strength lies in its stunning, bright images that reflect the true wearability of the shirts, skirts, trousers, and cardigans. The intimate, behind-the-scenes photographs document the process of creating cut and sewn from fabric that is almost three times bigger than the final pieces. The book is available now on Taschen's website for $39.99.
