Designer Profile - Issey Miyake 132 5.
Issey Miyake 132 5. focuses on re-generation and re-creation. Using entirely recycled fabrics, the collection is an extension of “A Piece of Cloth” which uses a single piece of fabric for each look.
The numbers in the brand’s title are significant: 1 is the single piece of cloth, 3 is the three dimensional garment, 2 represents a two dimensional and origami-like form that each piece folds into, and 5 is a fifth dimension that is brought to life by the wearer.
The process that goes into 132 5. is groundbreaking: using a computer algorithm three-dimensional shapes are conceived in collaboration with a computer scientist, the shapes are then folded and heat-pressed with permanent pleats. Technical innovation aside, 132 5. is part of the search for clothes that: “Bring joy and happiness to wearers.”
