Moon Berlin launches heated cashmere coat
Inside this coat there is a groundbreaking battery powered heating panel that will heat you up within 60 seconds.
On the 20th January 2016 I found myself attending #FashionTech Berlin. The event, hosted by SEEK and PREMIUM, is the kind of platform that exposes you to discussions, talks, and short introductions of startups. The well attended event is full of inspirational ideas for the future of fashion and technology. It is ‘the’ place for the uprising of ideas and businesses that in turn play a part in influencing the way fashion is designed, produced, distributed, marketed and sold.
With much to see there was one brand did catch my eye, Moon Berlin. They are brains behind the heated cashmere coat. What makes it unique is that inside the coat there is groundbreaking battery powered heating panel that will heat you up within 60 seconds. Beautifully designed, the high quality, soft cashmere coat definitely has the potential to be the winner when it comes to both successfully merging fashion and technology.
The integrated electrical heating system is attached in the lining. It cannot be taken out, but why would you want to, because the panel is thin, flexible and light weight that you don’t even feel that it is there. The model at the Fashion Tech stand was wearing the coat and we could hardly feel the panel in the back. And, even more important: you can’t see it either.
The panel heats up within 30-60 seconds, up to approximately 40 degrees Celsius. It’s not (yet) possible to control the heater, so it’s either on or off. Christian told us he is already working on a controlled heater for his coats. The battery lasts 6-8 hours and recharges in 24 hours.
