132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE

While playing with dimension has always been among Issey Miyake’s foremost interests, whether in Homme Plissé’s engineered pleats or Bao Bao Issey Miyake’s cubic accessories, the label’s fixation with the junction at which flat becomes voluminous is at its most prevalent in the 132 5. Issey Miyake label. With the numeric suffix of the label name referencing the moment in which a one-dimensional fabric gains a third dimension the hands of the wearer, but can also be folded into a two-dimensional shape and achieve a sort of fifth-dimensional metaphysicality, 132 5. Issey Miyake's esoteric design principles translate into aesthetically immediate ready-to-wear. Suggesting that the appeal of a garment extends beyond its wearability, the label’s sculptural shirting and trousers are equally rewarding whether adorning the human body, resting on hangers, or folded into luggage. Though the line’s backpacks and button-ups propulse the minimalist ideologies that have thus pervaded all of the Japanese label’s offshoots, the intricate concerns at the core of 132 5. Issey Miyake characterize it as a label conscious of the space that its garments occupy, not merely in the context of fashion but the physical world at large.
