New York-based design studio Chromat has unveiled its Spring/Summer 2016: Momentum Collection inspired by the idea that clothing, like architecture, should respond and adapt to the wearer.

Chromat sportswear functions as an augmentation that empowers the body to be stronger, faster and perform at optimum levels.

“We believe that clothing should be able to sense the wearer’s data sets - the heart rate, temperature, breathing patterns, stress - and the wearer's environment - temperature, air levels, GPS, social setting - and be able to adapt and respond accordingly,” Chromat said on its webiste.

Chromat has collaborated with the Intel Innovation team to create two responsive garments that transform based on the wearer’s body temperature, adrenaline and stress levels. The movement of the dress and sportswear are powered by the Intel Curie Module, which allows the garments to customize their shape and adapt to the wearer’s environment. By serving as an extension of the human sensory systems, the responsive garments reflect a concept known as biomimicry, where nature is used to solve complex human problems.

The Chromat Adrenaline Dress powered by Intel is composed of 3-D printed panels designed in collaboration with Francis Bitonti and an interlinked, expandable carbon fiber framework. When the garment senses adrenaline, the dress’s framework mimics the fight-or-flight mode and extends the wearer’s sensory system to form an imposing shape.

Chromat has also developed its first sportswear prototype built with Intel technology: the Chromat Aeros Sports Bra powered by Intel, inspired by wind, air and flight. The Chromat Aeros Sports Bra leverages shape memory alloy to open vents to cool down the body when it senses heat and sweat. With integration of the Intel Curie module, the sports bra can intuitively respond to perspiration, respiration and body temperature. This responsive clothing enables the wearer to break through barriers such as overheating to achieve peak performance.

“The Intel powered garments, along with the full collection of swim, sportswear and footwear, illustrate the potential of future integrations of fashion and technology. As we continue our exploration of optimized fashion and wearable technology, Chromat is focused on empowering the body by elevating the utility of clothing and accessories with intelligent capabilities,” the company said.
