Intimacy, Transparency Adjustable Dress.

The dresses presented in this post is designed by Dutch designers Studio Roosegaarde and V2_. Called Intimacy, the garments are made of electrically-sensitive foils that become opaque or transparent according to alterations in current.

Intimacy Black is made from strips of black material that turn transparent as another person gets closer. (left) Intimacy White varies in transparency depending on the wearer’s own interactions with the dress. (right)

The illuminated globe or “pearl” contains a wireless device which communicates with the dress using RF Transmission. When the “pearl” is brought closer to the dress, the dress slowly becomes more transparent.

Intimacy is a fashion project about the relation between intimacy and technology. Its high-tech garments ‘Intimacy White’ and ‘Intimacy Black’ are made out of interactive technologies and smart e-foils which become transparent based on personal interactions.
