132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE : CONCEPT

"132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE", developed by Issey Miyake and his Reality Lab. team, is both a new label and a new evolution of "A Piece Of Cloth".
The process by which the clothing is made is groundbreaking, using a mathematical algorithm: first, a variety of three-dimensional shapes are conceived in collaboration with a computer scientist; then, these shapes are folded into two dimensional forms with pre-set cutting lines that determine their finished shape; and finally, they are heat-pressed, to yield folded shirts, skirts, dresses etc. These clothes are significant not only for the process by which they were made but because they are also made using recycled PET products, sometimes in combination with other recycled fibers.
"132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE" is Miyake's new creative challenge based on the ideas of "Regeneration and Re-creation" and a continuation of his perpetual search for new ways by which to make "clothes that bring joy and happiness to wearers".
