In the early 18th century boys and girls alike wore dresses. Boys, when they reached the age of six, were then ‘breeched’ and given miniature versions of adult dress to wear. Reformers, including Rousseau in his 1762 treatise ‘Emile’, advocated that children should wear comfortable clothes that allowed ease of movement with no belts. Skeleton suits were commonly worn by little boys in England from the 1780s as reflected in paintings of the day, including Reynolds portrait of Viscount Althorp wearing a ‘skeleton’, 1786, another by Joseph Wright of Derby of the Arkwright children, dated 1790-91. Made of hard-wearing but comfortable and easy to launder cotton, they were worn with shirts with wide collars, sometimes accompanied by a pastel coloured silk sash. Trousers at the time were only worn by sailors and agricultural labourers. It was not until a century later that men generally were to adopt them as part of their everyday dress. The suit with its trousers buttoning onto the jacket was both comfortable and practical. Trousers gradually spread from younger boys to older boys and became general wear for men in the second quarter of the 19th century. Although skeleton suits were commonly worn, very few have survived. There is a similar example in the Victoria & Albert Museum of Childhood collection. £1200 - 1800 32 A chartreuse and ivory silk damask false quilted petticoat, 1770s-80s, woven with leopard-spotted ribbon trails, delicately coiling tendrils and blooms £400 - 600

This renowned Chinese artist produces these designs by detonating gun-powder charges onto the Issey Miyake dress, leaving a residue of scorch marks and ash, reminiscent of traditional Chinese calligraphic ink drawings. In 1998 at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art Contemporain, Cai arranged Pleats Please dresses in the shape of a coiling dragon on the floor, sprinkled them with gunpowder and then detonated the charge. The resulting charred, scorched patterns on the clothes were then photographed and later printed onto Pleats Please dresses for commercial sale. A similar dress from this series sold in these rooms June 2015, lot 311 for £20,000. £6000 - 8000

Literature: See ‘Pleats Please’ Issey Miyake published by Taschen p294 for a double page photograph ‘Erotic Girl’ by Araki, showing a Japanese girl wearing an identical dress, chained to a wall. Also pages 314 and 315 for an interior exhibition shot at the Fondation Cartier showing again the ‘Erotic Girl’ photograph. £3000 - 5000


For this gown Miyake collaborated with photographer and video artist Yasumasa Morimura. For the printed design he made a collage of images of himself encased in red mesh entwining the neo-classical nude by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. Fashion and art interact to create layered impressions; the textured fabric, the printed images and the body of the wearer inhabiting it, all add their different dimensions. To Miyake, the wearer is an essential participant in the design process: ‘When I make something, it’s only half finished. When people use it - for years and years - then it is finished.’ £6000 - 8000

KERRY TAYLOR AUCTIONS LTD AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE If Kerry Taylor Auctions Ltd sells an item of Property which is later shown to be a “Counterfeit”, subject to the terms below Kerry Taylor Auctions Ltd will rescind the sale and refund the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Kerry Taylor Auctions Ltd for that Property, up to a maximum of the Purchase Price. The Guarantee lasts for one (1) year after the date of the relevant auction, is for the benefit of the Buyer only and is non-transferable.

“Counterfeit” means an item of Property that in Kerry Taylor Auctions Ltd ‘s reasonable opinion is an imitation created with the intent to deceive over the authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not included in the catalogue description for the Property. Property shall not be considered Counterfeit solely because of any damage and/or restoration and/or modification work. Please note that this Guarantee does not apply if either:(i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinions of scholars and experts at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or (ii) the only method of establishing at the date of the sale that the item was a Counterfeit would have been by means of processes not then generally available or accepted, unreasonably

expensive or impractical; or likely to have caused damage to or loss in value to the Property (in Kerry Taylor Auctions Ltd’s reasonable opinion); or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the Property from its value had it accorded with its catalogue description. To claim under this Guarantee, the Buyer must:(i) notify Kerry Taylor Auctions Ltd in writing within one (1) month of receiving any information that causes the Buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the Property, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is believed to be Counterfeit; and (ii) return the Property to Kerry Taylor Auctions Ltd in the same condition as at the date of sale and be able to transfer good title in the Property, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale.

Kerry Taylor Auctions Ltd has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Kerry Taylor Auctions Ltd may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer’s cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the relevant field. Kerry Taylor Auctions Ltd shall not be bound by any reports produced by the Buyer, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense.
