COV-STREET is a Wearable garment for the new post-COVID19 reality. Helps the user maintain social distancing through vibrations that alert people nearby behind him. It also uses LED lighting on its back to alert others to the risk distance. And in the front it has a thermographic camera to be able to capture the temperature of the people around.
COV-STREET combines the functional design of the Chasqui
backpack, the protection against the cold of the Andean Poncho
and the urban lightness of the Hoodie. It focuses on the integration
of autochthonous and urban elements in its theme.
COV-STREET uses pieces of Baby Alpaca fabrics, coming from waste and leftovers from textile companies. These are joined by the Patchwork technique to give them utility and avoid textile waste
COV-STREET is a mobile application and social network that, through vibrations on clothing and notifications on the phone, shows us the areas with the highest risk of contagion and crowding. In addition, it also guides us to the safest pedestrian route for users who move on foot (app under development).
DESCRIPTION OF MATERIALS AND DEVICES
We are using Baby Alpaca fabric
scraps and Alpaca fiber fabrics,
coming from the decline of textile
companies. Baby alpaca fabric is
fine, with good drape, biodegradable, reusable, light, resistant and
works as an excellent insulator
from the cold.
Our objective is to look for pieces in grey, beige and ocher tones, although it depends on the unused remains of textile production
COV-STREET APP CONCEPT
The COV-STREET project was chosen as a finalist for the version of the 3d Fashion Week held in Lima in 2021. The theme of the event was the concept of “ETHNIC”. That is why it was decided to explore this theme trying to create a "primitive" finish to the garment, this in contrast to the technological part that gives that unique touch to the garment.
