The Unseen's future-forward tech-led materials are the Global Hypercolor for 2015's fashion elite...

“We want the world to experience materials that are out of the ordinary, understanding that they are available now and not necessarily just sci-fi futuristic fashion predictions,” Lauren Bowker tells Forbes; the RCA graduate’s unconventional design studio cum fashion brand The Unseen having recently launched Air, a new range of future-forward science-led accessories.

Bowker goes under the title Material Alchemist, and it’s a fitting nod to the occult — her work certainly holds an air of mystique. This is more than Global Hypercolor, Bowker’s work includes alligator skin with season-shifting responsive ink and a calfskin backpack that responds to fluctuations in air pressure. What if our clothes told us about the things we can’t see — Lauren’s work in this field began by developing a pollution-absorbent ink — what if the tech in ‘wearable tech’ was the wearable itself? The Unseen’s latest range of products are beautiful objects, but its where Bowker’s future leads us that’s really interesting.
