A-POC ("A Piece Of Cloth") clothing line is an innovative system combining high-quality items and mass production, developed by Issey Miyake and his collaborator Dai Fujiwara. Commercially launched in 1999, the concept was to involve the customer in the creation, through the customization of garments made from a single thread by a preprogrammed weaving machine: "the customer can cut along the seams without destroying the tubular structure of each individual item. The result is a puzzle of monochromatic articles of clothing that leaves behind virtually no wasted material". (via moma.org)
In 2000, Miyake teamed up with the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama well-known for her "polka dots", a trademark she added to the collection as well. The show took place in Paris at the Fondation Cartier.
