Climate change evacuation skirt

climate change evacuation skirt, Yael Mer

¬†Yael Mer’s “Evacuation Skirt” was designed tongue-in-cheek. Or was it?

Conceived after the New Orleans hurricane and flood, says Yael: “The skirt keeps its glamorous look when it’s deflated on the one hand, and on the other, it inflates into a kayak with the right amount of volume to carry a grown up woman.

She adds, “I wanted to raise the question of emergency and beauty and to explore whether they can meet each other.”Green Prophet says S.O.S.

If sea levels in the Middle East rise (that’s what the experts say will happen, after global warming sets in), we’ll be ordering a few of these skirts.

Yael Mer’s partner looks on at her design for a normal day, and the one of the right for days with floods.

We wonder if Yael has a prototype for men, kids and pets in the works?Yael’s design is quirky, but totally thought-provoking, wouldn’t you say?

    It’s been such a long time since a designer has brought a smile to my face. Yael has such a wonderfully eccentric sense of design, both whimsical and alarming, that one can all but help themselves from smiling!

    That’s a giant vagina people! brilliant!

  4. Sail away for a year and a day to the land where the bong trees grow?

    And suddenly “Does this make me look fat?” takes on a whole new meaning…

    well, with a last name of ‘mer’, you are probably always thinking about water and ways to live with it! Yoffi!
    (‘mer’ in french is ‘sea’, for those of you who don’t know.)

  7. Tania says:

    That is probably one of the strangest things I have ever seen. Does it come in other colours?
