Cafe de Lumiere

About This Project

At ElektroCouture we create ready-to-wear FashionTechnology experiences, which turns impressions into a wearable garment – and enables you to interact with your environment.

We always love to collaborate with great artists and bring them in a new context with technologies.

In this collection we experimented with old industrial knitting machines – to a point where we’re now able to knit patterns and photos. With that we can transfer memories into a wearable experience. Additionally, we infuse our garments with light technology which includes our own smart battery system. This latest generation also has an audio sensor makes the light pulse in the beat of your environment.

This garment has been made with 100% bio merino wool, is fully washable and can be recharged with an USB Cable.

THE CAFE DE LUMIERE PROJECT

Cristoper Santos is not only our house photographer but also an amazing artist with whom we enjoy working a lot. Cristopher also shares our love for traveling – it’s always great to find new patterns and inspirations across the world. Cristopher found a new pattern on a street in Warsaw, Poland. It was a wonderful old retro-style illuminated sign. It’s mounted on a historical building – and joins old architectural lines with light patterns.

Of course we couldn’t keep our hands of it – and turned this lovely travel memory into a wearable piece of art. Imagine what a funny feeling this was for fabulous Cristopher to take a photo of his photo! Now we proudly present to you this fantastic piece of FashionTechnology – which everyone can wear!
