Durex created wearable underwear that “transfers touch across vast distances.” Using sustainable fibers and Arduino, the team of developers and fashion designer collaborated to create a “comfortable […] and attractive piece of technology.”
Fundawear uses a custom mobile app that allows both parties to “touch” the other by pressing on dots hovering over various body parts. Each spot on the app is connected to actuators (those little chips that vibrate in your phone) embedded within the underwear itself to replicate human touch.
Meant to post this ages ago: one of my favorite stores in Paris has finally launched its website earlier this month, check it out at merci-merci.com, you can totally get a virtual feel of what this store is about. There’s a good selection from the e-com store, there are mainly “merci” branded stuff and not designer clothing/shoes/bags/accessories, but the home section is what you would find in the actual store.
75 Parisiennes is the name of a book by Baudouin, a French Photographer. He shot 75 Parisian women in their apartment over the course of 6 years and I love it. Check out more photos on LiveFastMag.com and Baudouin’s website.
Please read this great article about Fast Fashion on NPR.org. I have been boycotting H&M for quite some time. I’m really trying to buy smart, resell my stuff and considering buying second hand. Sustainability…
I really like the Burberry Prorsum peep-toe wedges! At the AW 13/14 show, Rita Ora is wearing a white pair, Gabriella Wilde the orange version, and Frida Pinto wore the same style with stiletto heels. These heels are actually from the Spring 2013 collection featuring white satin and open-toe. LOVE. And more of it here.
