Clothing that turns transparent when a person lies

Smart textiles have integrated technology into the world of fashion with the introduction of soft circuit incorporated garments that respond to the gesture and movement of the wearer in order to create music, to maintain the health of the wearer, purify the urban air pollution and even to protect the wearer from the thermal imaging surveillance which is used by unmanned aerial vehicles.

The latest development in the world of wearable technology is the high-tech garment collection ‘Intimacy White’ and ‘Intimacy Black’ introduced by the Dutch firm Studio Roosegaarde – a social design lab which creates interactive designs that explore the dynamic relation between space, people and technology.

Speaking to fibre2fashion, creative director of Studio Roosegaarde, Mr. Daan Roosegaarde said, “The clothing is made out of opaque smart e-foils that become increasingly transparent when the wearer lies and it functions as a sort of lie detector.”

“In response to the heart beat of the wearer, the apparel becomes more or less transparent,” he informs.

Talking about the interactions at play between body, technology and fashion in the garments, he says, “Nowadays, we see art as a merger between humans, technology and with this project in fashion, we like to see this merge as 'techno-poetry'.”

According to him, the technology is quite essential in designing wearable clothing since the properties of the material determine a great part of the final design. "We let these technical limitations work in our advantage and search for benefits within this limit," he adds.

“For us it was a logical step to create a dress from opaque smart e-foil. We first found the foil at the manufacturer and then we teamed up with two fashion designers. This whole process went very natural for us and we have created a statement in fashion,” he concludes.
