Pleats Please introduces October with a special window decal, featuring the cozy Fluffy Coat from September's collection. The monthly colors of October bring a multitude of styles in six color offerings. Combined with the satin-like fabric texture, every color is a special never before seen hue.
To add a pop of colors into the mix of neutrals are the addition of the Passage group, which features beautiful stripe pattern combinations in various color, thickness, and directions. And rounding off the month, to incorporate a little bit of the quirky spirit of Pleats Please are the Polar Bear group. These pieces are unique thickly-pilled outfits inspired by the images of those white bears from the far North, which brings us back to this season's theme of traveling.

This is the theme of this Autumn/Winter 2013 collection from Pleats Please. The upcoming months will bring to you styles inspired by the spirit of adventure and travel, which coincide perfectly with that important element of what Pleats has been to anyone who wears them. Each pieces make the perfect style choice in traveling essentials because of their effortless versatility of wear, pack-ability, and care convenience.
The highlight of this season's prints is from guest artist Teruhiko Yumura who also goes by the pseudonym, Terry Johnson. Teruhiko Yumura was one of the leading artists in the 1970s movement of “punk” mangas, which promoted lunacy and manic scribbles instead of the traditional artistic qualities.
For Cauliflower, it's all about "Sound" and how they are presented in every day things that surrounds us. We begin with some fun prints inspired by sounds related to music called "Sing", "Noise Check", and "Acoustic" complimented by light and cool color variations that's refreshing to the summer heat.
