From napsacks that turn into sleeping bags to a coat that turns into an armchair, transformer clothing is a big deal for us TreeHuggers. After all, if you can own less stuff and still get the same benefits as a full wardrobe, what's not to like?

That's the thinking behind Mimètik—a clothing line created by Spanish architect-turned fashion designer Mireia Solsona.
Inspired by the Ancient Greek's ability to transform one piece of cloth into different outfits, she has created a whole host of clothing designs whose core attribute is flexibility.

The latest video from Faircompanies—who usually cover arcitectural innovation from Ewok villages to mortgage-free tiny houses—explains more:

A cylindrincal piece of fabric converts between a dress and a top with a morphing neckline. A little red dress can be worn backward or forward, with caped sleeves or a bunched neck. A cone-shaped fabric flip-flops between a skirt a shirt (both are reservable). The most impressively morphing piece is a particularly Grecian shape that can be tied, twisted and wrapped to create ten different looks.
