Concrete Dress Absorbs Pollution

The first prototype from Catalytic Clothing, a collaborative effort between the London College of Fashion, University of Sheffield, and the University of Ulster, is a dress that can purportedly absorb airborne pollutants thanks to a space-age concrete mixture.

Apparently, a thin layer of this pollution-absorbing concrete is sprayed onto the “Herself” dress – meaning that you could theoretically help save the environment simply by walking around looking good.

Granted, pollution-absorbing concrete does exist, but it’s application to clothing seems sketchy at best. We shall have to wait and see whether or not this concept actually has some merit.
