Digital fashion design - Solar design - 2022

‘What is the outfit of our future?’

Endless Sunset is a digital fashion project. At the intersection of physical and virtual, it showcases wearable solar cells through a digital textile library and a digital outfit.

More than a simple digital fashion production, it is a design fiction project.

It is contextualised in the near future and plays with fiction boundaries. It imagines futures, and fantasises about them, in order to create reactions and discover new design experiences.

This digital solar project is inspired by solar design. Thanks to an innovative flexible solar panel named OPV, now, green energy could be integrated in our daily life and even being wearable!

Endless Sunset collection has been designed with the material properties of this innovative solar panel (flexible/transparent/coloured/customisable) and its aesthetic has been conceptualised around the sun topic (shadows/solar waves/reflets).

This project is the result of a phygital process. To understand and experiment the different properties of the sun and the solar panels, the physical experimentation has been useful to know the senses and features of materialities and textures; the digital production has been allowed to create a context and imaginary application.

Thanks to a fictional storytelling, inspired by Solar Punk*, and a phygital process, Endless Sunset try to imagine the textile and the outfite of our futur.

*A literary genre and art movement that imagines how the future might look if humanity succeeded in solving major contemporary challenges with an emphasis on sustainability, human impact on the environment, and addressing climate change and pollution.
