‘Intimacy’ is a high-tech fashion project by Studio Roosegaarde exploring the relation between intimacy and technology. Its high-tech garments are made out of opaque smart e-foils that become increasingly transparent based on close and personal encounters with people.

Currently Studio Roosegaarde is selecting haute couture designers to develop the next ‘Intimacy’ fashion line for men and women.
