The PENTAGON series, inspired by the regular dodecahedron, a geometric shape composed of pentagonal faces, is out. The regular dodecahedron is a polyhedron that consists solely of pentagonal faces. Using the characteristics of soft cloth, a new form of clothes was produced by envisioning a three-dimensional structure achieved by reducing the number of faces. All the items in this series can be folded into pentagons, and when they are worn, they transform dynamically to conform to each silhouette.
