See-through clothing is probably something you'd reserve for the bedroom, but Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde says his fashions are "daringly perfect to wear on the red carpet."
"INTIMACY is a fashion project exploring the relation between intimacy and technology," says Studio Roosegaarde. "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."
The dresses Daan designs become more or less transparent in response to the heartbeat of the wearer, "creating a sensual play of disclosure." More options are currently in the works, as Studio Roosegaarde is selecting haute couture designers to develop the next INTIMACY fashion line for men and women.
32-year-old Daan Roosegaarde has won a multitude of awards for his interactive designs that explore the dynamic relation between space, people, and technology. He's known for Dune, a public interactive landscape that interacts with human behavior; the Sustainable Dance Floor, which generates electricity through dancing; and Flow, a smart wall composed of hundreds of ventilators that interact with passing visitors.
How do you feel about high-tech fashion? Would you wear garments that transform from social interactions?
