Named after his revolutionary Pleats Please clothing line — inspired by costumes he designed for the Frankfurt Ballet in 1993, the clothes are meant to have fluidity, but also be effortless to wear and easy to maintain — the scent features notes of nashi (a hybrid fruit of pear and apple), peony, sweet pea, indole, cedar, patchouli, and vanilla. The architectural flaçon is meant to mimic the famous Bao Bao bag, with uneven ridges and a mix of concave and convex panels. The pleated floral calyx cap represents the flower element of the fragrance, as well as the Please Please fabric.
The scent retails for $66 and will be available exclusively at Nordstrom, beginning December 26. We think you guys have waited long enough for a new Issey Miyake scent, so we teamed up with the designer to offer a sweet giveaway to celebrate the launch. We've got a bottle of Pleats Please, an iconic Issey Miyake Bao Bao Bilbao handbag, and a copy of the gorgeous Taschen coffee table book of the Pleats Please collection to give away to one lucky reader. Happy holidays to you.
