Bags with a message for designers
Anti-designer fashion bags.
Why it matters
We have seen the rise of disposable cheap fashion that competes with designer pieces bit now the trend seems to be getting more aggressive. With the recession still full in swing the fashion seems to be shifting towards individual statements such as the ‘Karl who?’ bag that takes a swipe at designer Karl Lagerfield. Could this anti-designer movement last beyond the recessionary times?

The Hug Shirt allows people to exchange the physical sensation of a hug when real contact is not possible. Sensors built into the shirt register the ‘DNA’ of your hug (strength of touch, skin warmth and heartbeat) and transmit to the recipient whose own shirt will recreate the embrace.
TshirtOS is a t-shirt with an integrated operating system that allows wearers to share their social profile, take pictures and listen to music straight from the garment.
It’s like a personal board you can wear everywhere and anywhere. Created by Ballantine’s and CuteCircuit, TshirtOS believes that it’s allowing wearers to communicate with the world in a new way.
