I am a huge math geek, so while working on my Fashion Design degree, I always wanted to incorporate math and fashion in a very harmonious way. Kind of like how the Fibonacci sequence is usually seen a lot in nature.

And all this time, I thought I was the only one.
Turns out designer Issey Miyake along with his Retail Lab team and computer scientist Jun Mitani created a new label called "132 5. Issey Miyake" which incorporates a mathematical algorithm to form unique 3D shapes that can be folded into 2D forms. On top of that, the pieces are made with recycled PET products and other recycled fibers.
It is now nominated for this year's Design of the Year Award and is currently available at the 132 5. Store in Tokyo (And the list of why I should move to Japan keeps getting longer) and in selected Issey Miyake stores worldwide.
Still a little confused? Just check out the photos below and see what I mean.
Who says math is just for geeks and squares?
