Please watch by Jasper Morrison for Issey Miyake

The new Please watch by British industrial designer Jasper Morrison for fashion brand Issey Miyake is now available and funkier than ever.

Jasper Morrison’s  celebrates the twentieth anniversary of Issey Miyakes seminal Pleats Please fashion collection. “The Please watch takes its inspiration from the great Irving Penn 1994 photograph of Miyake’s equally great Pleats Please collection. I visited the 21_21 Design Sight exhibition of Penn’s photos for Miyake and was overwhelmed by how Penn managed to capture the spirit of Miyake’s clothes in his photos. And I decided then and there to do my best to capture some of that spirit for this new watch”, says Jasper Morrison.
