c. Spring 2005 Issey Miyake Vibrant Pink Backless Pleated Oragami Flower Top

The silver grey tag on this top is the label that was used starting in 1994. I went through the collections and narrowed it down to the Spring 2005 as the best possible on that this could be from. It has that same backless, tie, floral feel. This one combines more pf the pleated fabric that has become his signature then the more literal flower pieces shown on the runway. The top is a bright pink and it is made out of what feel like a light cotton linen mix. The front is a simple fabric breast plate that has that incredible detailing on it. The pleated fabric has been attached and manipulated on to this to form a petal like curving structure in the center and then drape around this to the edge. Straps made of the same fabric curve up and over each shoulder and then this crosses down the back and attached to the ties that extend out from each side. They then trail down long past the hips. The side straps tie and then trail down the back in a long extension of pleated fabric. It is amazing and a definite important future collectible that will only increase in value. Excellent condition

The back of the front part is finished in the same fabric as the rest of it is made out of. Tagged a 2 but should fit a range of sizes as long as it is wide enough to give you the coverage needed. The color is a bit brighter and crisper in person.

The main front part is 14" across at the widest part at the bust and it is approx 12" long from top to bottom. The ties adjust to fit
