Very few brands get quite the same craze from Bangkokians than Issey Miyake does.
The Japanese brand known for their signature futuristic pleats and technology-driven designs, is one of the best-selling in Thailand. Their pieces are seen as far more than just clothes, being equal to collectible art pieces in the eyes of Bangkokians. Having long had great relationships with their customers here, Issey Miyake has now released an incredibly special collection that’s absolutely exclusive to Thailand. The ‘Block Series’ collection under Homme Plissé (Issey Miyake’s men’s label), is a celebration of the infrastructures, colourfulness, and cool, laidback, stylish vibe of Bangkok city. Being sold only in Thai stores, these are the rare pieces you should definitely be adding to your collection.

The ‘Block Series’ Collection
The ‘Block Series’ collection is, of course, all about block colours. The pieces pair up contrasting sharp colours in order to encourage wearers to feel free to mix-and-match as they like. It’s a truly vibrant yet easy-to-wear collection: there are simply no wrong colour combinations you could do here.
The sharp vibrant colours are dedicated to Bangkok’s signature colourfulness. Contrast colour combinations are seen everywhere in the city, from houses to shop signs to food packaging. The Japanese designer is capturing this uplifting spirit in every piece of this exclusive Thai collection.
What’s also great about this special collection for Bangkok is that it’s perfectly wearable in our climates. Issey Miyake has still used the brand’s traditional fabrics for this series, and they’re all super soft and pleasing to the touch. It’s a lightweight kimono material that won’t stick to your skin and keeps you feeling nice and breezy in the heat.
This collection is a mark of a truly special relationship between Issey Miyake and their Thai customers. Now that we have these specially designed pieces just for us, our love for this beautiful unique brand has only grown deeper.
