Extensive knowledge of yarn selection, gauges, stitch techniques, patterns and layouts required.
The inflatable neck pillow I showed you in this post is one of the handiest travel items I own. It's also, small as it is, one more thing to carry. So building an inflatable pillow into a hoodie seems a particularly bright idea, and these two folks seem to have

Sputniko! (aka Hiromi Ozaki) recently launched a new project, Tranceflora – Amy's Glowing Silk, in an exhibition at Gucci's gallery space in Tokyo. In this project, she explores the intersection of fashion and genetic engineering by working with scientists to create a glowing dress made of genetically-engineered, fluorescent silk.
You’ll have several years under your belt designing soft goods – think backpacks, footwear, technical outerwear and leather goods like wallets. For you, good design isn’t finished until it’s actually in customers hands, working and being loved. You'll enjoy working in the lab to create prototypes that test your concepts.
An ideal candidate should have 7+ years of Mechanical Design experience, most of which in a consumer products industry, and the ability to speak alphabet soup (CAD, CAE, FEA, DFM, SLA, SLS, CNC, MIM, HDO, STEP, IGES).

This one is for all my ladies out there. For all of you who know firsthand the pain of going bra shopping—wanting something simple but not too simple, rifling through piles of underwear that say "sexy thang" across the rear or come adorned with gobs of charms and lace, going
Just when you thought that sneaker technology could be advanced no further, Adidas has launched its Futurecraft Leather Superstar, an ultra-limited-edition version of its classic sneaker crafted from one seamless piece of leather. The FLS is the result of a collaboration between Adidas, the London industrial designer Alexander Taylor

There are tough new chambrays and brushed cotton button downs, wool skirts, outerwear, raw
The purpose of this project is to develop a range of footwear design concepts to be made with 3D printing technology, which would speed up the production process and reduce the cost of production. This idea will allow everyone to use these available designs and print usable products using
World War I fighter pilots wore silk scarves for a very functional reason: In the pre-radar era, pilots spent a lot of time swiveling their heads around looking for the enemy, chafing their necks against their collars. Add some silk and problem solved. Now a company called Baubax has designed
While 3D printing enables rapid prototyping for product designers, emphasis on "rapid," the production method's uptake by the clothing industry has been slow. But it seems it will happen, eventually; a few times a year another 3D-printed clothing story comes over the wire (see list at bottom), and the latest
Rows of brightly colored PLA and rapid-prototyped pieces filled New York's Javits Center the other week for the annual 3D Print Design Show. The expo, which has been traveling internationally since 2012, invites manufacturers and makers alike to share their latest creations. It was there that the work of the
No one likes carrying a bulky bicycle helmet around. And as one designer after another tries to devise a way to make them collapse for storage, we're struck by how different everyone's approach is. Julien Bergignat and Patrice Mouille's Tatoo Helmet is comprised of polypropylene strips lined with padded cells.
Inspired by the radical approach of Studio Alchimia in the 1970's, Singapore Design: The Alchemists presents the work of 15 young Singaporean designers who are leveraging technologies, processes and unusual materials to develop, as the co-curator Stefano Casciani posits, "a more contemporary attitude for designing in the global context."
The folks over at eyeglasses manufacturer Shwood have managed to turn newspaper into veneer. It's more of a manufacturing exercise than a practical way to recycle, but what's interesting is the way they've done it: They started out by essentially reversing the process used to create veneer for plywood, whereby
The designer, educator and wearables expert on being an enthusiastic early adopter, always searching for the hack, and why industrial designers are fearless people.
Having witnessed a few of my nearest and dearest succumb to the mediative delights of knitting, I'm beginning to cultivate an appreciation—for the materiality and intricate skills of the art—that I might have normally reserved for wood or metal work. As with any craft, there are whole supporting industries attached...
Over the last few months, the hot topic of conversation among myself and my female startup friends (and a number of male friends too) has switched from the usual suspects of Shinola, YikYak, Casper etc to an unlikely pick: the New York-based underwear company Dear Kate. Dear Kate's marketing campaign...
I dare say a fair majority of us here share a healthy designerly appreciation for bags and luggage, and, in all likelihood, are partial, on occasion, to the practicalities of a trusty tote. Knowing that, and the realities of carrying around the sorts of oddities and objects that a life...
To Brits, the frenzied shop-fest of Black Friday (a phenomenon slowly spreading to our shore) seems like an odd tradition to follow on from a day of giving thanks—a sentiment shared by counter movements such as Buy Nothing Day and, I dare say, by a number of our American...
A professional photographer whom I know told me he'd never own any car that wasn't a van. When shooting guerilla-style on the streets of NYC, he explained, it's crucial to have a mobile changing room for the models to switch outfits in.The desire to not be seen naked in public...
Created some two generations ago, in the heady pre-hyperlapse days, the Eames' Powers of Ten remains as relevant today as ever before. While the short film makes for an unlikely (or at least hyperbolic) comparison to the work of snow artist Simon Beck, the very concept of scale is precisely...
It's interesting how things sometimes end up in your lap—in this case, it was a bag belonging to a friend of a friend that ended up on my kitchen table, and things developed from there. Those of you who already have read a few of my interviews from this interview...

The fact that Soug Wen uses that adorable little shrugging smiley in her tagline for Gothscreenshots might be my favorite thing of the month—the actual apparel collection coming in as a close second. What's so special about this series of graphic tees and accessories? Well, their patterns are based solely...
