High Tech Garments Meet Fashion with INTIMACY 2.0
What does the future hold for lingerie design? If this video from the fashion project INTIMACY is a preview of what’s to come, then we say bring it on. We can’t way to see what designers will do with their creativity, vision and high tech garments.
INTIMACY is a fashion project developed by Studio Roosegaarde exploring the relation between intimacy and technology. Its high-tech garments entitled ‘Intimacy White’ and ‘Intimacy Black’ are made out of opaque smart e-foils that become increasingly transparent based on close and personal encounters with people.
Social interactions determine the garmentsʼ level of transparency, creating a sensual play of disclosure.
INTIMACY 2.0 features Studio Roosegaardeʼs new, wearable dresses composed of leather and smart e-foils which are perfect to wear on the red carpet. In response to the heartbeat of each person, INTIMACY 2.0 becomes more or less transparent.
Currently Studio Roosegaarde is inviting haute couture designers to develop their own vision for the next INTIMACY.
