Bandeau Belt

Part of the Inflatable Fashion project. Created in partnership with Kathleen Westerhout. While extremely advanced and impressive, it’s not often that the technologies of water safety devices are ever considered fashionable. Lifejackets, or personal flotation devices (PFD’s), are utilitarian in style, with little consideration for social stigmas, lifestyle, and fashion. Many available PFD’s offer great protection for active, sporty water activities, but there are no products suitable for the fashion-conscious woman who values both style and safety. Teaming up with Mustang Survival, we created a product line for female recreational boaters. Our alternative to bulky (and ugly) Personal Flotation Devices is the Bandeau Belt: an inflatable PFD that merges fashion with a utilitarian device to enhance the user's experience on the water.
