knits made from hyper-elastic threads, and rolls of fabric that contain an entire die-cut wardrobe - dresses, shirts, socks, the lot. all you need is a pair of scissors to cut them apart...definitely interesting stuff. Probably more collectible than wearable?

aoyama trendoids.

service

modern.

interior

pressed sheet metal paneled wall and ceiling...clinical machine shop out the back...some wild new lights above the display tables. projected cg on glass...

[update 02.2008...reverted back to a plain old issey miyake store...]. new [2000] 'experimental' a.p.o.c. [a piece of cloth] clothing concept store by issey miyake and dai fujiwara, based on a conceptual range that began two seasons ago...based on idea that clothing is made from a single piece of fabric...the store has a mission control workshop in the back which looks like a set from 'gattaca'... staff wear laboratory jackets and thick black rimmed glasses. this store is worth checking.
