Clothes That Say “I Love You”
So Valentine's Day is upon us. I am sure many of us (unlike me) have interesting mornings, noons or evenings planned...with their partners.
Now you want to look good today. You want to say the magical words in a variety of different ways. You want to express your love for each other and create new bonds or recharge old ones.
The world of fashion I discovered has myriad creations which can help you do just this...express your love, in a manner that is novel, yet interesting.
This is one of the greatest ways to show you care. The Hug Shirt actually squeezes the wearer whenever someone sends the wearer a hug via text messages. According to the creators, "The Hug Shirt is a shirt that makes people send hugs over distance! Embedded in the shirt there are sensors that feel the strength of the touch, the skin warmth and the heartbeat rate of the sender and actuators that recreate the sensation of touch, warmth and emotion of the hug to the shirt of the distant loved one."
Though it is not meant top replace the human touch, this great innovation can make your loved ones happy while you are away from them. Adding to its value is the fact that it is fun to use and really soft. People from all ages, kids, adults and the elderly would love to wear this.
Love is the essence of life, and the folks at ThinkGeek have discovered that people feel best when they are close to something they love. Working on this theory, they have created an amazing 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt .
The way to go about is that you buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to your significant other. In the humdrum of routine life only two and a half pixelated hearts will light up on your shirt.
The message is clear, you need love.
So just get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the hearts on both of your shirts start to light up until you're fully powered up.
And as soon as you start to drift away from your source of love, you'll drop back down to two and a half hearts again.
The power" of love, demonstrated clearly.
Hoodies That Light Up
Called "Embrace Me" these hoodies from Studio 5050 are marked with a bold abstract pattern made up of a silver conductive fabric.
So what makes the hoodie light up? Why an embrace...
To make the hoodie glow two people must be wearing the same type of jackets. When they hug each other, they actually power up little lights at the back of the garment. A tiny heart beat sound can also be heard.
The hoodies are inspired by early Siberian hooded coats, which created a safe haven, an envelope of tranquility protection and romanticism.
The only catch is that one has to buy a pair of these...they retail at $480-$600 for the pair.
Only For Couples
The "For Me For You" collection was designed after careful observation of casually dressed couples and how they walked. The line, including a jeans and a jumper encourages hugging and affection between partners.
Conceived by InsightOutsight a group of young designers that want to provide practical responses to everyday activities, the clothes have pockets placed at slightly different angles to facilitate hugging. .
Taking "togetherness" to newer heights is the love T-shirt from Pantalaine. Especially for couples who cannot bear to stay apart for even a second, the T-shirts are actually designed to hold two!
How more "we" can one get?
