New York based Chinese fashion designer Yuchen Zhang combined fashion and technology to create a piece of adaptive clothing that protects the wearer from harmful pollution. In response to the oppressive level of air pollution in some major cities, Zhang’s jacket incorporates a filtration mask into the design so wearers can breathe easy without compromising design. The reflective fabric also increases visibility in the dim daylight created by pollution. Zhang identifies her garment as an illustration of what could be if people continue to deplete the protective layer the Earth’s atmosphere provides.
