dc.description.abstract <p>The aim of Lucent Two was to create a breathable and lightweight apparel solution for runners while running in humid climatic conditions because many rain jackets cling to the wearer’s skin and become very uncomfortable. This performance running piece protects against rain through the use of silicone-impregnated ripstop nylon used as the outer shell. To keep the fabric off sweaty skin and increase ventilation, the garment is constructed with two layers where the outer layer on the upper body floats freely on top of an underlayer made of mesh. Many other functional details elevate the design of this jacket. The inspiration for the aesthetics of the jacket was drawn from Nick Veasey who creates x-rays of fashion items. By using ripstop nylon, and layering different translucent blue shades the designer was able to create an x-ray type effect when the garment is backlit.</p>
