BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE
BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE was designed around the premise of ‘shapes made by chance.’ The line of bags and pouches, created in 2000, balances the creative functionality and modern spirit of our time. BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE continues to indulge us in a pursuit of intriguing shapes born out of simple pieces and diverse materials. Folding, accommodating and transforming itself after handling, each piece implements the concept of functional art.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE PIECES
To remove dirt from a BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE product, wipe gently with a damp, tightly wrung soft cloth and then wipe dry. Do not use paint thinner, benzene or detergent, etc. To dry, please wipe with a soft cloth.
BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE products come with a dust bag to protect when storing. Please store in a well-ventilated place, do not expose to direct sunlight, heat or high humidity.
– As the materials used in the construction of BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE products are heat-sensitive, please do not place this bag where it will be exposed to high temperatures.
– Avoid folding when storing as this can result in visible fold marks. Avoid placing other items on top as this may cause permanent marks or dents.
– When wearing delicate fabrics, please take care to avoid the bag catching onto any fibres.
– Avoid allowing the surface of the bag to remain in contact with printed materials such as newspapers or magazines for an extended period. This can cause a colour transfer to occur.
MATERIALS FOR BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE
Most BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE pieces are made from bonded Polyester mesh and triangles. Sometimes the pieces will be made out of PVC. All of the studs and trims on the pieces are made from brass with a coating on top to avoid tarnishing.
PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE
Launched in 1993, Issey Miyake’s iconic diffusion line, PLEATS PLEASE, is famed for its design and wearability. The unique construction process involves a garment first being cut and sewn before being Individually pleated. This process creates shape and texture in an elegant yet functional garment. This practicality stems from Miyake’s philosophy of continuing to focus on both the importance of imagination and the development of new technology in clothing.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE GARMENTS
If a PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE garment becomes wet when worn, remove it as soon as possible to avoid stretching the pleats. The design of the product does not allow the sleeves or the hem to be altered.
Place the PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE garment in a washing net bag and machine-wash on short cycle or hand wash at a maximum temperature of 30 degrees Celsius.
Gently unfold the garment in the direction of the pleats and dry flat in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight.
To maintain the shape of the pleats, it is recommended that the garment be washed in water without soap after wearing.
Roll in the direction of the pleats when storing.
– Do not tumble dry.
– Do not iron or steam press as the finish of the fabric is not designed to withstand heat.
– Do not use detergents that contain bleach when washing whites and light colours.
MATERIALS FOR PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE
PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE garments are made solely from Polyester. Polyester is chosen as it is a synthetic fabric and is able to hold the pleats well. A PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE garment is created by first cutting and sewing the garment together before it is hand fed into a heat pleating system. The heat set pleating method ensures the permanence of the pleating.
