In 1991 Hypercolor became popular with t-shirts made using thermochromic pigments, which change from colored to colorless at certain temperatures. As the wearer’s body temperature went up or down, the t-shirt changed color. Sadly, the company making the shirts could not keep up with demand and declared bankruptcy after only a year in business. Other garment manufacturers, such as American Apparel have since experimented with special effect clothing using thermochromic dyes, but they have never caught on with the same intensity as the hypercolor t-shirts. Now, Italian men’s clothing maker Stone Island has developed an updated and fashionable version of color-changing clothing with its Ice Knit line of sweaters.
