New York-based artist Adam Harvey will be unveiling a new range of counter surveillance fashion on January 17th, presented by Primitive London at Tank Magazine HQ.

Made in collaboration with fashion designer Johanna Bloomfield, the four pieces “explore the aesthetics of privacy and the potential for fashion to challenge authoritarian surveillance.”

Great for those who don’t want to be ‘followed’ by surveillance technology, the Stealth Wear collection features garments that make the wearer ‘invisible’ to certain technologies.

The anti-drone hoodie and scarf hide you from thermal imaging, the XX-shirt protects your heart from x-ray radiation, and an accessory called Off Pocket can instantly black out your phone signal.
