|132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE|
|Parent company||Miyake Design Studio|
Introduced in 2010, the 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE brand emerged from extensive research conducted by designer Issey Miyake and his team since the early 2000s. The research is focused on finding prospective materials and innovative clothing forms. The essence of the brand lies in its unique folding technique and the ambition to utilize recycled materials. The brand's name, 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE, signifies: (1) a piece of cloth transformed into a (3)-dimensional shape, then folded into a (2)-dimensional form, creating a silhouette that hints at a (5)th dimension beyond time and space. Relying on recycled polyester, the brand develops fabrics combined with natural and/or plant-based synthetic fibers, endorsing a design that encourages the use of recycled materials in our environment, society, and daily life.
