I fall in love several times on tokyo about the design and the Issey Miyake's concept. And this year during my tokyo trip i bought two somptuous pieces from this brand .
I'm so proud to have right now on my closet one Bao Bao bag with the geometric triangle design and a masterpiece for me : a silver dress from the unfold origami eco collection; And yes this dress is magical . For me it's more a piece of abstract art than a fashion piece.
yes you can see on my pics this geometric square , and this geometric square it's THE dress.
I bought it at the omotesando aoyama store .

" Issey Miyake Unfolds Origami-Inspired "132 5 Eco-Fashion Collection
Process informed work generated by Issey Miyake's Reality Lab. Flat surfaces are folded, creased and ultimately transformed using traditional origami sequential patterns. Unfolded and remapped, sequential analysis reinforces the concept of regeneration. Individual statement garments lie folded flat like a series of collapsed geometric landscapes. Pulled up and unfolded, however, each compressed form gracefully spatialized into three-dimensions. Abstract Sculptural expressions whose wearability would seem like an accidental discovery...except it's not an accident. This line has it's own language, distinct from the rest of the wearable universe. Mixed-use garments; shirts, jackets, skirt, or dresses that can be worn as variable elements. A wardrobe in constant programmatic flux.
The secret to 132 5, a Reality Lab concept. The clothing is first designed using a software program, built by computer scientist and post-modern origami guru Jun Mitani, generates intricate three-dimensional shapes from a single flat sheet of paper. Once Miyaki and his team replicate the forms in recycled PET polyester, they examine ways of refolding the garments into flat, planar shapes through the incorporation of cut-lines.
The clothing is first designed using a program that generates 3D shapes from a single sheet of paper.
It's this multidisciplinary process, in fact, that lends the collection its name. The number "1? refers to the single piece of cloth used to make each item, "3? to indicate its three-dimensional shape, and "2? to the fact that it can be flattened two-dimensionally. The single space denotes the time between the completion of the folded form and the moment someone puts it on, while "5? signifies the concept's multiple permutations.
132 5. Issey Miyake showed the line in Fall 2010.
There are ten basic patterns. Members of Miyake's Reality Lab (research & development team formed by Miyake) are textile engineer Manabu Kikuchi & pattern engineer Sachinko Yamamoto. the name 132.5 refers to the process of development: the number "1" refers to a single piece of cloth, "3" refers to its three -dimensional shape. the following "2" comes from the fact the a 3d piece of material is folded into a two-dimensional shape, and the "5" separated by a single space refers to the time between when the folded forms are made and people actually put them on, giving birth to clothing. the numeral "5" also signifies their hope that this idea will have many other permutations.
