A little bit of PLEATS history?

Pleats’ was introduced into ISSEY MIYAKE in 1989, and has been developed every season thereafter. By 1993, it was ready to be launched as a complete and stand-alone brand and appeared as PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE for the Spring-Summer collection.
This is a line that is positioned to embody one of the most fundamental concepts of Issey Miyake – where the true value of design lies in its integration into the everyday life and comfort of the wearer. This is clearly demonstrated in the development and evolution of traditional techniques of processing and of pleating material into a highly functional modern product – light in weight and easy to wear and handle. This revolutionary concept has won the respect and admiration of women throughout the world and contributed to the growth of an iconic brand – an ingenious fusion of creation, technology and business.


Discover Pleats Please by Issey Miyake, an invitation to have fun.

A breath of optimism. A boost of energy. A joyful and feminine signature. An effervescent and addictive fragrance. The fragrance that moves you.

– By Issey Miyake.

Happy Independence Day! – 4th of July Nail Art

Tomorrow will be the anniversary of when The United States won its freedom! Happy Fourth of July citizens of this free country! :) My nails are happy and ready to celebrate!! Are yours?

Recreate my Indepence Day Nails!

Recreate this look using:

  1. I used two coats of OPI – Fit For A Queensland (it’s a pearly white w/ a very very sheet iridescent pink)…. But any white will do. Apply 2 coats to entire nail.
  2. For the red color, Nicole by Opi – Deeply In Love, or, Essie – A List
  3. At the tip, appy the blue, Essie – Aruba Blue, or, Essie – Midnight Cami
  4. Then one coat all over nail of China Glaze – Luxe and Lush (fthe their Hunger Games Nail Collection) this will imitate sparkles and sparks from fireworks.
  5. Next, don’t forget the bright stars of the striped spangled banner! This will go on top of the red portion.
  6. Lastly, your favorite top coat. I’m currently using Nutri Nail – Bullet Proof Strength
Have a Happy 4th of July! Stay safe!

Trend Report: Mixed Whites

Friday, June 7, 2012

Today is the first edition of the #FashionFriday series here at RUNWAYORTHEHIGHWAY!!

Not to get all scientific on you, dear readers, but today’s Trend Report reminds us a lot of Sir Isaac Newton’s third law of motion, specifically that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. With so many bright prints and neon hues illuminating our ensembles this season, outfits consisting of varying shades of white have become a welcome palette cleanser as of late. Ushering in a completely different and new way of brightening up our wardrobes this summer, white-on-white layers put a fresh spin on monochromatic dressing, and as demonstrated by discernable tastemakers like Ashley Olsen and Jessica Alba, the results are very chic indeed!

On The Runway
Though a mix of stark white hues suit the spring and summer months best, we actually found inspiration for today’s story in Acne’s Pre-Fall 12 collection-revealing this trend’s year-round appeal. Read the rest of this entry »
