More and more companies continuously enter the market of interactive apparel ranging from iPod controlling jackets and pants to cellphone charging jackets. The Argentine clothing line Indarra DTX is the last one to do so, with an impressive collection of such items.
The motivation behind the decision of fashion designer Julieta Gayoso, founder of Indarra DTX, to enter this segment of fashion was the fact that technology has become so important today, being an integrating part of our lives that is necessary to be available with a person everywhere.
One of the top pieces in the collection is represented by the Joystick Pants, available for both men and women, which come in a cool look and have a joystick like iPod control just above the side pocket. The twist here is that this controller operates wirelessly the iPod (thanks to the command by radio frequency) which can be in a pant pocket or in a bag up to 18 meters (59 feet) away from you (your pants).
Having the hands full with other stuff while running around doing all kind of errands, the quick skip of a song or hitting pause to listen to public announcements becomes very convenient when it can be done on the sleeve or the trouser without having to take out the iPod from a pocket. The outside of the pants is cotton 100% compact gabardine, with extra light, fresh, soft hand feel.
Other details that make the Joystick Pants practical, but also stylish are a straight line, normal fit, 2 front pockets with metallic zip and 2 back pockets. This garment is limited edition and has its series code stamped on the outside.
At this moment Julieta Gayoso’s collection is only available via Indarra DTX for the local (Argentine) market but she is working on a second interactive fashion collection and hopes to begin exporting products outside Argentina in the year to come.
