Issey Miyake 132 5 – Engineered Genius

For his first clothing collection in over 10 years Issey Miyake launching 132 5 has offered the Fashion world a touch of unexpected innovation. The collection was not only designed, it was created with a fusion of theoretical math, design inspired by origami and a hi-tech new polyester material that is derived from recycled plastic bottles. The Numerical Name is not just any number, the “1” refers to the single piece of cloth used to make the garment, the “3” to its 3D shape, which can be folded back into a “2” dimensional piece and finally “5” the number of ways in which the garment can be worn.

“For me, it’s a very powerful idea to actually change the meaning of something,” he tells Susanna Frankel of The Independent. “Like the Walkman, for example. You know, it completely changed the idea of sound, and that’s great. My dream, and the reason I first decided to open my studio, was that I thought to myself, if I could one day make clothes like T-shirts and jeans, I would be very excited.”

The collection was revealed in Paris this week, take a look at the images below.
