Japanese luxury bag brand Bao Bao Issey Miyake operates two boutiques in Singapore, one within Forum The Shopping Mall (583 Orchard Road) and another at ION Orchard (2 Orchard Turn).
Bao Bao Issey Miyake, created by fashion house Issey Miyake in 2010, creates unique collections of bags and pouches that feature technology-driven, exciting and intriguing yet simple shapes, as well as diverse materials.
A signature theme throughout the Bao Bao Issey Miyake line is “Shapes Made by Change”, which translates into light and soft designs that fold, accommodate, and transform themselves with use, resulting in dramatic new shapes.
These individual fashion items, which are only completed when owned by someone, provide flexible functionality that is perfect for the busy, modern Singaporean lifestyle.
Of the stores, the ION Orchard shop also carries Issey Miyake’s iconic PLEATS PLEASE apparel collection, launched in 1993.
PLEATS PLEASE collection is made from high quality, 100 per cent polyester fabric which is first cut, sewn together, and then hand-fed into a heat press sandwiched between two sheets of paper, resulting in permanent pleats – vertical, horizontal and zig-zags – that create architectural shapes when worn by customers.
