397Four young ladies in pleated gowns and hats bowl outside a country inn, one just releasing the ball at a set of ninepins. At the other end of the alley, a little girl is ready to set up more pins. Two young ladies stand together on the left beyond the bowler, one offering the other a bowl of snacks. In the center background, another lady leans over a table with wine bottle and glass and blows the foam off a large cannister(?) of beer she holds in her hands. A spaniel watches the bowling from beneath the table. On a large tree in the background, a tally board, halved by a chalk line, shows the marks of two teams. A ball, a tipped pin, and a clay pipe with broken stem lie in the foreground. Surviving impressions includes the date "2 Feb 1779."

For the first time, the story of this revolutionary line of clothing is being told. The concept of Pleats Please Issey Miyake is explored through a vast array of texts and images, tracing its journey from inception, through material development, to its public reception. The explanation of its evolution also includes, also for the first time, a section not only revealing the creation of the original thread — but also the pleating process!
