    I just received some info at the store about ME from Issey Miyake. It is launching stateside for Spring. It appears to be a lower priced line, wholesale $50-200. Does anybody know about this. The pics included in the packet aren't very detailed. Runner?.... :flower:

    Yes, it's a new line, lower priced. I saw the pieces in the Issey Miyake store in Tribeca. It's not bad, but nothing fantastic. I am not sure if a different manufacturing process is involved as with APOC.

    it seems that Me Issey Miyake made its debut in S/S 01 in Japan, characterized by the fabric which stretches in all directions. (I don't know well though, sorry)

    I like "Haat" (meaning village market in Sanskrit) which is also from Issey Miyake.
    and the new line called "Kazuaki Takashima" has just been launched this fall.

    Thanks Runner.
    Pretty cool concept I think. It does remind me of an 80s retail phenomenon called Units.....I will def check out the product when I go to market.

    Yeah, the tube distribution system won a prize or at least an honorable mention from International Design magazine a few years back.

    it's by a design team (he might be involved in some way though).
