Fashion designers already work in three dimensions; however, you might doubt that once you set eyes on Ichiro Suzuki's RCA Graduate Collection. The bolts of fabric that make up most garments are rolled out flat, but there are distinctive patterned forms and an obvious depth to the threads that this designer is displaying.

Here, optical illusion and complex material manipulation were applied to manufacturing menswear after inspiration came from the art of Bridget Riley, Victor Vasarely and M. C. Escher. Protruding cubic shapes with hexagonal contours form dinner jackets, while a colorful pixelated treatment to cloth creates a rad low-res getup. Checkers and plaid are also rearranged to challenge the eyes in the bio-geometric tailoring of Ichiro Suzuki's RCA Graduate Collection.
