Following Volume 1, which focused on the 1970s and 1980s, this second exhibition looked at Miyake’s works from the 1990s and 2000s. The foundation received a request to provide the organizers with an example of Miyake’s famous pleats, and responded by loaning “Staircase Dress” and “Ashcan Hat” from the 1994 fall/winter collection. As with the previous installment, the exhibits were complemented with video footage of the original collection. Also, in keeping with the curator’s vision, footage of the 1994 spring/summer collection, in which PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE was unveiled, was also shown.
