Couture in Orbit

Featured design which was submitted for the Couture in Orbit Project in collaboration with the European Space Agency and the Science Museum London.

The design of this wearable is based on a speculative design as a narrative as to how the future of space travel will affect the shape, form and function of wearables in the decades to come.
Entitled Sojourner, named after the robotic Mars rover, the wearble is designed for a world in which it would be used to adapt to harsh and changing environments during the colonisation of humans on a new exoplanet. It's made with both organic materials as well as metals, plastics and pieces of technology that are available now or could be feasibly available in the future.
