Designer Jennifer Darmour of electricfoxy recently revealed her latest project: ZIP is a garment that allows you to interact with your music player by using the zipper as a volume control element. Zip your jacket up to raise the volume and protect yourself from the outside world. Unzip to turn the volume down and engage in conversations.
Darmour used soft circuitry to create a technology-integrated garment that moves and bends with your body and it is washable. Made of embroidered conductive threads, the pleat patterning on the jacket is not only an aesthetic solution but also act as a functional element for the jacket.
