Unseen Body Heat

This headpiece by The Unseen has 4000 conductive Swarovski crystals that change hue according to brain activity. Guess that means if there’s not much going on up there, everyone will know?

British fashion house The Unseen has joined fashion and science for reals. The Unseen is three women, Lauren Bowker, Chista Leask and Jess Smith, who create exquisite wearable science using both cutting-edge technology and incredible tailoring. In fact, Bowker (The Unseen’s founder), studied both fashion and chemistry. Originally, she started down this path to help herself: she has a spinal condition and wanted to create materials that would signal a shift in her condition.

Nowadays, The Unseen cooks up heat-sensitive inks and hyper-conductive stones to come up with truly custom palettes that change color based on heat (including heat generated by brain activity), friction (!!!) and humidity. (So, yes,  even the crazy-territorial fashionistas among us can be SURE no one will have on the same outfit….even if it is the same outfit.) This is what we call future-forward —- and the Unseen’s stunning, otherworldly silhouettes only make us love it more. (Oh, and BTW, they make non-clothing items too.)

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that science and smart are not sexy.
