In a characteristic exploitation of the shape-holding possibilities of a novel textile, Issey Miyake introduces a blisterlike oval to the derrière of a simple chemise dress. The geometric form recalls the bustles of the late nineteenth century, but in its high-tech and minimalist rendering, it conforms to the avant-gardist rather than historicist sensibility that informs the designer's oeuvre.
