Spray-on Clothing becomes a Reality
A Spanish fashion designer has developed the world’s first spray-on clothing that can be worn, washed and worn again.
Manel Torres joined forces with scientists at Imperial College London to invent the spray, which forms a seamless fabric on contact with the body.
Torres took 15 minutes to spray a T-shirt onto a male model in a demonstration today, ahead of his spring/summer collection at the Science in Style fashion show in London next week.
The spray consists of short fibres that are mixed into a solvent, allowing it to be sprayed from a can or high-pressure spray gun. The fibres are mixed with polymers that bind them together to form a fabric. The texture of the fabric can be varied by using wool, linen or acrylic fibres.
The fabric, which dries when it meets the skin, is very cold when it is sprayed on, a limitation that may frustrate hopes for spray-on trousers and other garments. [READ MORE…]

“Then in the late 18th century, the idea was openly formulated that true art comes from dangerous voyages of the soul. From Turner adventuring in sea storms to Schiele opening his senses, artists going into the modern age were filled with the Romantic urge to discover intense realities. In the later 20th century, this cult of the unknown switched from mountaintops to hard drugs, and from high culture to rock music – but the Romanticism was the same.”
