Fuchsia Dunlop's favorite thing: Issey Miyake's Pleats Please "Magic" Dress


The British chef, who in 1995 became the first foreigner to train at the Sichuan Higher Institute of Cuisine, speaks fluent Mandarin and is the author of several cookbooks, most recently "Every Grain of Rice: Simple Chinese Home Cooking."

In Sunday's New York Times she responded to Kate Murphy's question about what she was wearing as follows: "My Pleats Please dress [top, worn by Ms. Dunlop] by Issey Miyake. It's a sort of black cocktail dress. You can roll it up and stuff it in your suitcase. When you arrive at the other end, it kind of springs out alive and ready to go. It can look quite smart or quite casual depending on what you wear with it. It's kind of a magic dress."

At Issey Miyake stores everywhere.
