Merging Fashion and Technology: Smart Spider Dress by Anouk Wipprecht

A exercise in self-defense, fashion, design, emotion and technology, the Smart Spider Dress – designed by Anouk Wipprecht and powered by Intel Edison – epitomizes the synthesis of glamour and tech in 2015 (not to mention a bit of girl power!).

The dress – publicly debuted International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV on January 6th – is as beautiful as it functional. The dress, constructed of iridescent white nylon,  is collared with animatronic arachnid legs that react to 12 different stress levels in the body. The result – a garment that both autonomously and reactively – acts to protect the wearer’s personal space. A ‘performative wearable’, the limbs aggressively extend or invitingly retreat based on the wearer’s reaction to her surrounding. In other words, be nice or back off.

If Wipprecht wasn’t just a genius, her sense of style is absolutely gorgeous. Topping a chic (and/or violent) look with a modern chignon is a brilliant way to look polished, day or night. (Bonus: our Row A stylists can help you get the look on the go!)
