#TechStyle

Un abito solare in grado di ricaricare un cellulare. Una giacca di pelle rivestita di inchiostri reattivi, che le permettono di cambiare colore al calore e alla luce. Una gamba artificiale in metallo nero-laccato è invece la risposta femminista alla gamba di legno di Capitan Ahab in Moby-Dick. Questa è la tecnologia che guida l’estetica.

‘#techstyle’ Review: In Boston, the Future of Fashion

While a current exhibition at the Met Fifth Avenue in New York, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” explores a century of couture-level complicity between the hand and the machine, this one focuses on fashion’s most recent and radical high-tech hybrids. A solar dress that can recharge a cellphone. A leather jacket, coated in reactive inks, that changes color in response to heat and light. A metal and black-lacquer spike that’s a millennial feminist’s answer to Ahab’s peg leg of white whalebone. The cutting edge, the conceptual, the idealistic, moralistic and futuristic—in “#techstyle” enterprise and invention drive the aesthetics.
