Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka designed this boutique to display fashion designer Issey Miyake's 132 5. collection of garments, which fold from two-dimensional geometric shapes into structured clothes (see our earlier story).
Taking the same name as the collection, the shop displays each garment on a transparent mannequin suspended from the ceiling, with folded versions laid alongside and an iPad to explain the construction process.

Tokujin Yoshioka x 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE
The first store for "132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE" designed by Tokujin Yoshioka has been launched.
"132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE" is a new label and a new evolution of "A piece of Cloth" by Issey Miyake, based on the ideas of "Regeneration and Re-creation."
"Way of selling" is the concept of this space rather than the superficial interior design.
The clothes are displayed on five transparent torsos, which are strung down from the ceiling.
Customers can access freely to the computer graphic images of the complicated process on the iPad installed in the store.
The display of the process from 2D to 3D is as if it is of the Japanese Kimono store.
