    shopping...
    for collection and for pleats please...
    *i'll leave bao bao for the handbag forum...

    recently visited the metropolitan museum of art in nyc...
    in conjunction with the 'manus x machina' exhibition, they are selling certain fashion items in their gift shop...

    including this scarf from pleats please...
    which i tried on and is now f-ing haunting me...

    i tried black- which was fine, but then i tried this very pale grey...
    and something in my heart snapped...
    i almost couldn't take it off...
    :heart:

    but i managed to leave it there and go away...
    but its ghost is following me around~!!!
    :ninja:...

    http://store.metmuseum.org/manus-x-...miyake-pleats-please-scarf-gray/invt/80033738

    basically-when it is on, it is reminiscent of a medieval "ruff" collar...
    and that soft, off white is just brilliant...
    *i have something polyester from uniqlo in this same shade of grey---must be something particular to japanese factories...

    anyway...
    since the issey miyake and the pleats please collections are now stronger than they have been in years...
    thought it was about time we had a shopping thread for them...
    :woot:

    because it is folded in this image- you cannot see the sheerness and lightness of the fabric...
    it practically floats away on it's own...
    :lol:...

    and it has four points on each end...
    which give it fantastic movement...

    agh!
    i'm obsessed...
    :blush::p

    sorry, that was confusing
    "this" refers to the scarf in the link, not the hat.

    also I guess your browsing mode is different from mine where the text with the link inserted appears in the contrasting color with underline ?

    ah...!!
    i see...
    sorry i misunderstood...
    :blush:...:doh:...:lol:...
    silly me...

    yah- i wonder if i could make the contrast stronger on links cause i always seem to miss it when you do it and only discover the link much later on...
    :innocent:...

    if i look very closely- it seems like the link is very dark blue, but it's almost black...
    very hard to tell the difference...
    hmm...

    i think that may be the scarf, yes...!!
    it is definitely the same shape...
    though i guess they do that shape regularly in different fabrics and prints...
    it was the first time i saw it in person in the sheer chiffon option, and i just thought the lightweight fabric is so much better than the regular pleats please poly that i am used to...

    there is just something transcendent about it...

    is pleats please an all-machine washable line? or was that just a myth?

    i'm pretty sure they would come out of the washing machine fine-
    but some of the newer items are a bit more complex in design, and i would think that would make them more delicate...

    i might use a laundry bag to wash them...

    issey miyake main line...

    these heavy jersey pants are amazing...
    they fit sooo well...
    i don't like the picture here...
    * cannot imagine why you would not shoot them straight on to show the angled hem...:rolleyes:
    the styling is awful in general...

    but these pants are really special, imo...:heart::heart::heart:

    OMG- that dress is beautiful~!

    zips at the wrists remind me of vintage and couture, rather than punk...
    what' that CAT bag?!?!

    that pic looks so much like me, it's eerie...
    :woot:...

    thx runner...
    simply lovely...

    the theme for PP2018 is "sea". it seems that you'll see the jellyfish-printed shopping bag from august 16.

    I really have to do something about this issey miyake obsession that I've developed...
    it's getting worse...
    I haven't be able to buy any of it because I feel like it can't be just one thing...
    it has to be multiple pieces- like one complete look maybe that can then be spread out in the wardrobe and worn with other things...
    one piece of issey doesn't make sense somehow.
    it's not enough of a statement or something...
    I don't now- maybe that's not it...

    I haven't figured it out yet...
