132 5. issey miyake

Issey Miyake has always been the last word in fabric/fashion experimentation, from his Pleats Please collection to the A Piece Of Cloth, he has continuously pushed the fashion and fabrication boundaries. Upcoming is the latest experimentation, where fabrics fold like Japanese Origami, but pulls up to unveil dresses, jackets and shirts. Called 132 5. Issey Miyake, I am really looking forward to trying on something from this series.

The number “1″ refers to the single piece of cloth used to make each item, “3″ to indicate its three-dimensional shape, and “2″ to the fact that it can be flattened two-dimensionally. The single space denotes the time between the completion of the folded form and the moment someone puts it on, while “5″ signifies the concept’s multiple permutations.
