Issey Miyake A-POC Collections
i thought that Issey Miyake’s A-POC clothing collections may deserve their own thread
i was searching for images of all 14?[from A-POC 0 to A-POC 13] collections, not with great success though.
an interesting article from contemporary magazine.com
http://www.contemporary-magazine.com/interview59.htm
and images of A-POC 12 from http://androniki.com/

thanks for this mirrra and for introducing us to androniki's work too.
(we've been working on the same mags here in Athens, but not sure if i ever met her)

i love the genious idea behind APC, but the shapes mainly leave me cold.
i saw Issey's 'official' launch for APC at the Cartier Center in Paris few years ago and i was totally taken, mouth gapping and all (post 7 introduces stills from the 'launch' video).
Hopefully in ten/twenty years most garments will be manufactured based on Issey's APC prototype idea but design wise, this needs real work and developement.

I was amazed when APOC came out a few years ago.
But till this day, I'm still wondering how this works(is it simply cos of the fabric?)...

APOC has its own shop (at least) in Paris HB..

benzo, the whole concept it based around fabric and industrialised cut (no need for sewing machines there) another interesting point is that the end client can actually interact with altering lengths/shapes etc once he'she has brought the garment.

APOC is what ( in my book anyway) brings Miyake on top of today's fashion revolutionaries/ researchers/ developers

there is an interesting article from wired
http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/12.04/miyake_pr.html
and here

Quote:
It all begins as a "special" tube of cloth which is fed into a machine, much like a printing press. The device outlines and perforates the final shape of the clothing that is to be cut. As the tube of fabric emerges, one can discern in the embedded shape of a hat, a dress, underwear, bra, socks, gloves and even a purse. All it requires is a pair of scissors to free the garment from its web. But what makes A-POC such a remarkable concept, is that Miyake has deliberately placed that decision and the shears into the customer's hand.

thanks Lena for the info!
