During the above period, architect Ryuji Nakamura will evoke through objects a world view inspired from the [CIRCULAR] series of clothes by 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE.
Featuring delicate lines that seem to float, these creations convey an impression of physical strength through gravity, materials, and so on.
By all means please step into this space where the simple shape of the circle spreads out into countless shapes.
This season, inspired by the "circle," we created lightly tailored hem and collar borders, taking advantage of the sewing restrictions imposed by the circular shape to get rid of the facing. The
Circular 3D Series [CIRCULAR] consists of garments produced by simply cutting several circles of fabric of the same size and attaching them with stitches at regular intervals to create an elegant worldview.
【SCOPE】 A steam stretch series with a design that uses to advantage the double weave. The steam shrunk parts realize both functionality and form creation.
【CLOUD STRETCH】 A 3D steam stretch series that has been evolved in the pursuit of everyday wearability. It uses a cooling spring-summer material that features the addition of cotton thread to a fabric that combines a circular pleats structure with a flat twill structure. The collar and the hem feature an airy design of clouds floating in the blue sky or their flowing movement. The pleated, wrinkle resistant fabric makes these items easy to care for.
【SKY】 This series expresses with a Jacquard weave the ever-changing sky and clouds of varying shapes. This rich denim series features tops and bottoms in many variations and sizes.
【FLOW STOLE】 This series represents seasonal themes in print, using soft and premium quality materials.
【SPINNING GALAXY】 A denim featuring a landscape design spun of natural tropical materials used for piña etc. This is a unique fabric featuring cut weft threads.

This item, which offers ordinary water repellency, is a multipurpose piece that can be worn on many different occasions. The line-up includes also an indigo dyed georgette of triacetate blend fabric.
