Wouldn't it be nice to have the chance to disappear once in a while from the fast moving world that we live in? This has been made possible, lately, for people who travel by subway. The project Architectural Camouflage, which is the result of a collaboration between New York based studio Snarkitecture and print company Print All Over Me, includes a collection of printed clothes covered by patterns taken from the materials that are used in subways, such as white stone tiles and marble. These garments give the wearer the opportunity of becoming a chameleon and make them blend into the urban environment. The prints of architectural materials have a surprisingly good outcome on clothing as the collection illustrates.
