Thermo-reactive jacket changes its hue as the temperature changes.

It wasn’t long ago that we brought Moda Operandi’s new runway fashion preorder service to your attention, and now you can put it to the test, just so long as you have $8,000 to spare of course. That’s the cost of Alexander Wang‘s new “thermo-reactive” coat that cycles through a range of colors as it’s exposed to heat.

The heat-sensitive skirt and top suit, which were featured in the same collection, begin at a more modest price of $2,550. Each of them looks the same as the other, until they’re exposed to heat, at which point they reveal their true colors. As pointed out by Vogue, the shin-guard mules and pocket-covered tunics are probably the two items within your reach, for a completely reasonable $995, and $895, respectively.
