On Aura Tout Vu. Sunlightpower Spring Summer 2023 Couture Collection during Haute Couture Week.
Vital radiance Movement,
Engine of life Dynamics of autonomy Pragmatic and poetic Solar energy, piezoelectric energy, human energy.
This is our question and answer to the current energy crisis. The inspiration of this collection is based on an existential question that we asked ourselves: can human beings turn towards themselves and draw on their own resources to create their own energy? Our answer is in the new Couture or Techno couture. We must look for the solution in our own forces, in our movements and in what surrounds us. On the one hand, the sun can recharge our batteries (in a pictorial sense), but also in a purely utilitarian way with photovoltaic generated energy. On the other hand we have piezo energy, generated by movement. We looked for ways to integrate extremely thin and flexible photovoltaic elements, as well as piezo elements into couture pieces. How to store the energy thus produced to recharge our essential smartphones, directly in clothing or through shoes? In a nutshell, how can we actively involve Couture in solving our daily problems? The most important message for us is that everyone on their own small scale can produce their own energy and reduce common electricity consumption. The idea of this collection is that each of us becomes an energetic element that holds part of the solution to the current energy problem.
