Dutch designer creates a futuristic hi-tech dress that turns see through when you get excited


This futuristic garment, created by Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde, is made of smart fabrics which are usually opaque but become see-through once the wearer’s heartbeat quickens.

The dress, named Intimacy 2.0, has already won the Dutch Design Award and China’s Most Successful Design Award – and now it could be heading to the high street.

INTIMACY is a high-tech fashion project exploring the relation between intimacy and technology. Its high-tech garments entitled 'Intimacy White' and 'Intimacy Black' are made out of opaque smart e-foils that become increasingly transparent based on close and personal encounters with people.

Social interactions determine the garmentsʼ level of transparency, creating a sensual play of disclosure.

INTIMACY 2.0 features Studio Roosegaardeʼs new, wearable dresses composed of leather and smart e-foils which are daringly perfect to wear on the red carpet. In response to the heartbeat of each person, INTIMACY 2.0 becomes more or less transparent.
