Issey Miyake‘s latest imprint, the slickly simple IM MEN, is expanding its in-house selection with a new capsule collection. Uncomplicatedly called “Convertible,” the garment series sees nine single-toned garments rendered in cutting-edge textiles that take well to being packed into bags or worn crossbody as the weather demands, sharing design cues with Miyake’s recent “Compact” womenswear garments.

A wrinkle-fighting coat, high-necked jacket and relaxed trousers are all rendered in a partially plant-derived polyester that’s dyed yellow, dark navy or Sage Green. The jacket and coat both feature snap buttons, velcro and zippered closures for adjustable fits, while the trousers feature an inset webbing belt and snap buttons below the knee. Both pieces of outerwear can be worn like a backpack, thanks to handy internal straps, or rolled up and converted into a bag just like the pants, with the internal pockets transforming into extra storage.

All of the Convertible items are currently available on Issey Miyake’s IM MEN website for ¥165,000 JPY (approximately $1,525 USD), ¥132,000 JPY (approximately $1,220 USD) and ¥60,500 JPY (approximately $560 USD) for the coat, jacket and pants, respectively.

More packable goods recently surfaced courtesy of The North Face’s Urban Exploration sub-label.
