The young architect-turned-designer debuted a new collection of technology-driven garments at Paris Fashion Week.

Though she’s known first and foremost as the herald of 3-D-printed haute couture, Dutch designer Iris van Herpen has always dealt in theater as much as technology. Now in her fifth year as a fixture on the runways, van Herpen’s flair for drama has never been stronger. At Paris Fashion Week on Monday, she opened her Spring 2013 presentation (appropriately titled Voltage) with a model dressed in a metallic bodysuit swaying atop a Tesla coil as columns of purple electricity gusseted from her limbs.

After a few minutes of ghostly swaying, the real show began--van Herpen unveiled 11 new garments designed and produced using emerging digital technologies, including two 3-D printed dresses and a gown created with laser sintering. “My work very much comes from abstract ideas and using new techniques, not the reinvention of old ideas,” van Herpen commented. “I believe it will only be a matter of time before we see the clothing we wear today produced with [3-D printing].”

SMOKE DRESS | Anouk Wipprecht | Aduen Darriba

Dutch designer Anouk Wipprecht made waves in the fashiontech scene with the Technosensual exhibit last year. She just released a video featuring the gorgeous, delicate SMOKE DRESS, created in collaboration with Aduen Darriba, which summons visions of interstellar nymphs frolicking in Neptune’s ice caves. Behold:

Fellow designer, Valerie Lamontagne, writes: “SMOKE DRESS is a collaboration between fashiontech designer Anouk Wipprecht [NL] and technologist Aduen Darriba [NL]. The dress is a wireless and wearable tangible couture “smoke screen” imbued with the ability to suddenly visually obliterate itself through the excretion of a cloud of smoke.

Ambient clouds of smoke are created when the dress detects a visitor approaching, thus camouflaging itself within it’s own materiality. The SMOKE DRESS, with its loose net of metallic threads and electrical wire, works at the scale of the magical illusionists trick, permitting a hypothetical magician’s assistant to perform her own disappearing act.”

Bravo, Anouk and Aduen.

A wearable [550 gram] and wireless system attracts attention with flirty blinks and sparks, but covers itself in a thick layer of smoke when approached – leaving the body undetectable. Operated by a micro-controller-based, battery-driven sensory system on the back of the design which calculates the wearer’s personal space and sends data to the tiny smoke generator between the shoulders, this system runs up to 4 hours prior to battery exchange. Functioning as protective shield, projected as parasitic instrument hosted on the body, it creates organic borders and communicates a non-verbal ‘fuck off’ signal.
