ISSEY MIYAKE FETE Label, Extraordinary One-Of-A-Kind Jewelry Multi strand Soft Matte Gold Leaf Necklace Yellow Golden Wire & Variegated flat LEAVES of Matte Golden Acetate film.
ISSEY MIYAKE's designs are the expression of the art of the both the designer and the wearer. The clothes are an artform by themselves, ISSEY MIYAKE Designs have little "hanger appeal", but, each item is a JEWEL that is eminently wearable and truly fabulous
No other designer has challenged the architecture of clothing and the boundaries of body covering more fearlessly than ISSEY MIYAKE. Because of his ceaseless fascination with the marriage of technology to style, he has bent, twisted, molded, shrunk and dyed fabrics in ways that other designers could not even imagine. and still, has managed never to lose sight of his detailed vision.
ISSEY MIYAKE although an artist in the true sense of the word, is also a prolific business man. There are several lines that he manufactures including PLEATS PLEASE which is probably the most popular and well known. He still asserts his own style and esthetic, but this is a more casual and easier to wear collection. The TUNIC we are listing here is from the Higher End ISSEY MIYAKE FETE COLLECTION.
Multi strand Soft Matte Gold Leaf necklace comprised of Yellow Golden Wire from which flat LEAVES of Matte Golden Acetate film descend. The Leaves are variegated in size, They are suspended from the 5 strands of Golden acetate threading Some alone, and some in groups. Tendrils of Curled Wire punctuate the leaves with tiny round buds finishing the ends some are hung directly on one of the five neck strands, and some are suspended from a single strand The different size LEAVES are all visible when they lay on top of each other giving a sense of depth. This is magical with dimension and texture. Because the material of the necklace is light, the piece has great movement and makes a rustling sound when worn. It is difficult to describe, but the overall effect is ethereal. This One-of-a-Kind Necklace is extraordinary when worn. I hope you can visualize its whimsy from the photos. So playful, because of the movement and three dimensionality. Snap together fitted clasp Signature ISSEY MIYAKE - F E T E tag attached. The enclosed section of the necklace is 22" around The Leaf Tassel extends about 12" longer, but does not dangle in a straight line.
This was made in Japan. Finding a piece of ISSEY MIYAKE Jewelry is exceedingly rare This is so magnificently designed that the highs and lows of the dimensionality Creates Swirls and Interesting Shapes this is very light weight and is great all year round and ideal for travel It is constructed of a fabrication of Miyake's own design that is a Matte Gold Acetate Film. PERFECT NEW CONDITION from the ISSEY MIYAKE FETE Collection (not pleats please) I would guess this to be about a $3,000. retail.
When trying on this necklace - I didn't open the clasp, but pulled it off, over my head. I loved how the Golden Leaves created a halo mixed with my hair and created a soft Hair Band. I've photographed this on "Esmerelda's" Head - hair would help. . . but, I think this is very chic

If you love the look, there is nothing that comes close to itand, the comfort is totally unbeatable The Japanese are the most adventurous of the designers and MIYAKE has paved the way This is a remarkable thing of great beauty There is nothing easier to travel with than Issey Miyake, and it is as light as air
