Issey Miyake honeycomb jacket
Polyester, nylon

This Issey Miyake jacket bears some similarity to chain mail jackets of the Edo period, but is entirely modern and nearly weightless.

The very open-weave fabric is honeycomb shaped and three dimensional, bringing to mind such industrial materials as air conditioning filters.

The material is extremely soft and flexible, gathering very easily at the waist to make an unexpected fashion statement.
