• Dutch designer Pauline van Dongen creates solar-powered dresses

  • solar-dress-1We’ve always fancied solar panels, but we’ve never thought of wearing these as a fashions statement before. Behold, the dress that charges up your gadgets with green juice and promises to grab eyeballs, at the same time! Designed by Dutch designer Pauline van Dongen, this experimental line of clothes harnesses the power of the sun using integrated solar panels and are capable of charging devices like smartphones.

    “Technology isn’t just tracking stuff, it’s also about expression,” says Dongen, “Fashion is a language that communicates identity and it’s important to create new expressions round the body.” We agree. If the ecosystem finally doesn’t end up killing us all in the near future, we wouldn’t mind wearing solar panels, so long as they’re colorful!
