Issey Miyake 132.5 collection – the link of mathematics and fashion design
132.5 collection is a new origami and regeneration concept created by my idol Issey Miyake. This is a clothing line made from recycle textile. The concept is inspired by the work of computer scientist Jun Mitani which makes 3D structures with smoothly curved surfaces by folding flat materials. Issey Miyake thinks that the creation by Jun Mitani is the aesthete tic link between structure and beauty and its process. He suggests to create a new fashion line crossover by Reality Lab which is a research team comprised of designers and engineers focusing on the link of mathematics and fashion design. The name “132.5 collection” has its own meaning. “1” refers to a single piece of cloth. “3” refers to its three-dimensional shape. “2” comes from the fact that a 3D piece of material is folded into a two-dimensional shape. “5” signifies our hope that this idea will have many other permutations. In this collection we can see taht 2 dimensional geomatric-patterns which unfold into shirts, skirts, pants and dresses.
Issey Miyake always is my idol, he has really great works in textile and fashion designs. My favorite piece of Issey Miyake’s work is “Pleats please”. I am strongly believed that the new fashion line “132.5 collection” is my favorite choice, too.
