Issey Miyake, the renowned Japanese designer, along with his research and development team Reality Lab, have won a coveted “Oscar” from the Design Museum of London for their 132 5. collection. Mr. Miyake and his team beat out Sarah Burton and her Alexander McQueen royal wedding dress for Kate Middleton as well as the Alexander McQueen “Savage Beauty” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Conceived using a mathematical algorithm and software that creates flat geometric shapes from single sheets that open into 3D creations, the 132 5. collection comprises wearable clothing that can be folded flat, origami-style.

The 132.5 collection is based on the ideas of “regeneration and re-creation” and is made using recycled PET products, in some combination with other recycled fibers.
