The heat is on, literally.
We know we’re on the brink of breaking into summer officially, but we still can’t help thinking what’s next in outerwear. During Paris Fashion week back in March, French fashion house Courrèges kicked it up a notch by introducing three coats with self-heating technology. The three color ways came in black, blush pink, and in a houndstooth pattern. For their sophomore collection for Courrèges, design duo Arnaud Vaillant and Sébastien Meyer introduced these three tailored winter coats, each with an integrated heating system that’s activated by the push of a button, and can be charged with an iPhone cable, according to The New York Times.
“We started to think about the future of fashion, because design needs to work hand in hand with technology if we want fashion to evolve,” Vaillant told luxury e-comm site SSENSE in an interview. “The way we make clothes needs to evolve if we want more comfort and well-being. This transition is possible if technology responds to our primary needs: well-being and comfort.”
