From 1996 issey miyake developed a series of clothes, collaborating with some contemporary artists called 'Pleats Please Issey Miyake Guest Artist Series'. The artwork on the dress of the photograph above is from series 'No. 1: Yasumasa Morimura for Pleats Please'.

The painting is called Portrait (La Source 1,2,3), based on the painting La Source by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres of 1856. The final result created an interesting effect on the dress, where the bold colors contrasted the naked and pale skin of the goddess.
