Issey Miyake AW2008 A-POC Multicolor Pants


Issey Miyake exists as a designer in the most literal interpretation of the word. His clothes do not exist to put forth a narrative as those of Ann or Raf do, but rather to display marvels of technical skill and innovation. His career has been propelled by a desire to explore fabric and construction techniques, and how they interact with their wearer’s body. In recent years, Miyake has completely disassociated himself from the label, choosing to strictly to work on developing new fabrics. His scientific approach to expression of beauty has found him many vaunted kindred spirits, including Steve Jobs, whom he designed his iconic black turtlenecks for.

A-POC, short for "A Piece Of Cloth”, was a line specifically dedicated to the exploration of innovative fabric techniques. The A-POC project itself was an attempt to create clothing using a single thread of fabric guided by computer technology, and was later put on display at the MoMA. This pair of pants is an excellent display of his sophisticated fabric work, with an elaborate overlapping color scheme that produces a near tie-dye effect, and brown nylon paneling.
