Once upon a time, science and art were complete opposites. It was inconceivable to make a connection between something cold and calculated like science & tech and the passionate, profound art.
Nowadays, though, art uses technology as a means to an end. 3D printing, electricity in various forms and engineering principles are put to work to create wonderful sculptures and clothes.
Fashion is more and more linked to tech – luxury wearables are a clear proof of that.
It’s no wonder big fashion houses are starting to create techy sets for their annual shows and even clothing that moves or evaporates at the simple touch.

Made from calf leather, it’s sturdy enough to become an office staple but light also, so that you can take it on a daily basis.

Price tag? $2,400. Surprised? I didn’t think so :))
