Issey Miyake-No accessories required

Finally, after having this amazing suit in my wardrobe for nearly 3 years unworn now, I decided that it should be worn and certainly shown, as it really is a favourite of mine.

I found this Issey Miyake 2 piece suit at the boot sale and tried to get it for £25, but the lady wanted £30-she won, I couldn't lose it over a £5!!

Its pure wool and I think its lately nineties. Very timeless and now maxi skirts are back in trend after a long absence, I thought I would shop my own wardrobe for this style and start wearing it.


The detailing and cut is typical Issey and I could also wear these pieces as separates. I also thought minimal accessories would suit the total outfit too.


What trend can you shop your wardrobe for this summer?

I totally love this outfit (not because it's black)... I love that it is a classic. I'm also shopping my closet for a maxi skirt. I finished shopping my closet for the khaki military pants and I found a lot.

Have a great day! xoxo

What a great outfit. Even at £30 it was a bargain and you were right not to lose it over a fiver as it would probably have fetched much more on ebay.

Vintage Vixen said...

What an amazing find, well worth the £30 you paid. Looks fab on you and I agree, minimal accessories all the way.
I absolutely love the maxi length.

Very classic! And it looks great on you.

Thanks for the note. Aw, thats sweet about the boys..yeah, my brother and I did that to my Dad, too.

I have found a black skirt full of ruffles. Just not sure what sort of top to wear with it. & on the look out for a summer scarf.

Add me to the list of fans of this suit! I think you're right - you COULD wear it as separates! The skirt REALLY intrigues me! Those "puckers"! Wow! You KNOW I like the length, too. Glad it's back in style. I'll just keep on wearing them.

No, you certainly shouldn't have lost this gorgeous piece for a fiver! It looks great worn like this, but you can also wear it seperately. I think I can re-wear everything in my wardrobe this summer - flimsy dresses, denim shorts and dr.scholl shoes... Now all I need is some warmth!

I really want nice oversized shirts.

Cafe Fashionista said...

You look so glamorous in this ensemble, my love - I adore the classic sophistication of the color and the cut. The trend I love this summer is rompers - they're just so comfortable and adorable!! :)

stylechanges said...

hi dont wear black in summer,
black attracts sun,

That's Not My Age said...

Gorgeous outfit, I love the knot detail. I need to sort my wardrobe out pretty soon but I've got plenty of khaki so it'll probably be the military/utility trend.

Make Do Style said...

Ha! You caved in on the price!!
What a great find - that's it I need to meet you for a car boot.

you look great in and I'm going to sort out my summer wardrobe very soon.

A very monochromatic look indeed. If the skirt was at knee length, it would look better.
