PARIS — Issey Miyake, the Japanese innovator behind Pleats Please and A-POC (“A Piece of Cloth”), has again pushed the boundaries of fashion design with a new concept based on three-dimensional origami.
The line, cryptically dubbed 132 5., is based on patterns generated using a software program developed by computer scientist Jun Mitani which creates 3-D shapes from a single, flat sheet of paper.
The resulting clothes, rendered in a recycled polyester fabric, fold flat into striking geometric shapes that are overlaid with sheets of colored tinfoil, producing abstract patterns once they are worn on the body.
"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
