Please by Jasper Morrison at Dezeen Watch Store

Dezeen Watch Store: the new Please watch by British industrial designer Jasper Morrison for fashion brand Issey Miyake is now available at Dezeen Watch Store.


Jasper Morrison’s Please watch celebrates the twentieth anniversary of Issey Miyake’s seminal Pleats Please fashion collection.


The timepiece pays homage to Miyake’s designs with a ridged polyurethane strap and stripes on the face that catch the light in different directions.


Hours are marked with subtly alternating brushed and polished segments round the rim of the stainless-steel case.


It's fastened with a brushed stainless-steel buckle and is suitable as either a man's watch or a woman's watch.


When designing the watch, Morrison used Irving Penn’s iconic 1994 photographs of Miyake’s collection as a starting point. "I visited the 21-21 Design Site 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," said Morrison. "I decided to do my best to capture some of that spirit for this new watch."

Dezeen Watch Store also stocks the W watch by Satoshi Wada for Issey Miyake, inspired by automotive design. See all watches from Issey Miyake »
