Anouk Wipprecht, who was featured in our Hi-Fructose: New Contemporary Fashion book, recently unveiled her “Fragrance” and “Elixir” dresses, in collaboration with Cirque du Soleil. With Elixir, after answering preference questions on the SAP gadget worn on the arm, the system blends your drink and sends your concoction through the tubes and into the vial. Think the Beer Helmet of the Future.
Wipprecht describes the Fragrance process similarly. After the SAP platform is used, “capsules stored in the model’s 3D printed (SLS, PA-12) shoulder-piece are being released through servo valves. The transparent capsules holding the bottles fall into the model’s hand, and are then placed on a built-in conveyor belt at the model’s chest (based on a stepper motor), filled with the respective ingredients and handed to the participant. The fragrance design stores ingredients divided in head, body and base notes that allows for the possibility of several different mixes.”
