Show Him You’re Randy With Tech Couture

08|13|2013

Once upon a time, fashion’s sole purpose was to communicate job roles and social class for carpenters and kings. Then sometime in the 19th century, when the industrial revolution made mass production of clothes and print photos possible, it started to evolve and took on the role of representing cultural trends.

Now impacted by instantly changing social media and Fast Fashion manufacturing, fashion has evolved into a personal expression of who you are and what you are feeling. Its very essence, its very purpose and function in society, has fundamentally changed.

So, when I tell you that someone has made a dress that becomes clear when the wearer gets aroused, don’t roll your eyes and blow it off as a mere gimmick. While gimmicky, this is very much so a representation of fashion’s future.

INTIMACY” is a high-tech fashion project by artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde of Studio Roosegaarde that explores the relation between intimacy and technology. Its high-tech garments entitlted “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.

They express your emotions.

Featured below, this is actually the second version of the project and the studio is looking to partner with designers for intimacy 3.0.

While you cannot buy the dresses in stores at the moment, if you happen to be near Kent State University Museum later this year, you’ll be able to see them on display.
