Japanese Designer Creates Solar-Powered Coat That Charges Gadgets
If you’re sick of running out of battery on your smartphone when you need it the most, and don’t mind paying a whopping $2,480 on a coat, you might want to consider getting this solar-powered jacket that can charge your gadgets on the go.
COMME des GARÇONS’ alumnus Junya Watanabe first unveiled his FW16 solar-powered men’s coat back in March, but his unique creation is doing the rounds once again, after becoming available for purchase at the hefty price of $2,480. So what makes this coat so special, apart from being a designer item, you ask? Well, just in case the four large solar panels on the back and the two in the front haven’t given it away already, this coat harnesses the power of the sun, converts it to electricity and stores it in a hidden power pack for on-the-go charging.
Long sleeve coated cotton coat in ‘khaki’ green. Faux-leather trimmed solar-power panel fixtures at back with smartphone charging wire concealed at interior. Wool trim at spread collar. Button closure and buttoned welt pockets at front. Elbow patches. Adjustable buttoned cinch strap at cuffs. Vented hem. Reflective lining in silver-tone. Power-pack device included. Tonal stitching. 100% cotton. Lining: 100% polyester. Trim: 100% cotton. Made in Japan.
