Karolina Wąż (Ford) makes a colorful appearance in Dazed & Confused June 2012 for what is a look back at two decades of Issey Mikaye’s Pleats Please label. Launched in 1993 by the Japanese designer, Pleats Please has made use of high-quality polyester fabric with intricate accordion pleats. The resulting garments keep their pleats and yet are malleable to the wearer’s body. To celebrate 20 years of the label Taschen will publish a 512-page volume titled Pleats Please – Issey Miyake in August.
