132 5. Issey Miyake

The 132 5. Issey Miyake line explores the appeal of a garment beyond its wearability. The numbers at the beginning of the label’s name (132 5.) reference the different dimensions fabric occupies. The 1 is the simple piece of fabric on its own. The 3 is when the fabric is worn by a subject. The 2 indicates the two-dimensional folding capabilities of the garments, and the 5 references the fifth-dimensional metaphysicality of the folded pieces. This label focuses on the intersection of fashion and sculpture and the space a garment occupies through its entire life cycle, from fabric to clothing to being folded and put away.
