Designer Victor Johansson speaks of the idea of luxury in a really interesting way, describing such a lifestyle as one in which the key is in the inconveniences that are eliminated, rather than in the indulgences received.

The Escape Jacket exemplifies this concept by providing privileged people with the freedom of closing themselves off from the world. This is a suit jacket that cuts off all radio frequency waves to keep your smartphone from receiving calls, messages, emails and other incoming communication.

This innovative feature is enabled by a NFC chip that's embedded in the fabric, creating a dead zone surrounding the inner left breast pocket. Looking otherwise like a regular dinner jacket, the Escape Jacket is embellished with wave-like pinstripes on the lining.
