This "flood-proof commuter suit" is foreseeing the possible reality as climate change progresses and the consequences on our planet become exponentially more visible. This piece is designed by Glodsmiths student Nicholas Bennett who considered the rising sea-levels as a main component in the silhouette.
The waterproof commuter suit is intended to help individuals in the future cope with the possibility of frequent floods. For this project, Nicholas Bennett has merged "office-appropriate brogues" with wellies and waders in fluorescent orange. The model is flexible as wearers can adjust the length. Laces are present at the side to reduce the bulkiness of the piece.
The flood-proof commuter suit might be odd to some, however, this might as well be a necessary product in the future. The design is debuted through a short film that illuminates its functionality.
