The Spring/ Summer 2018 Serenity Collection Chromat Autumn/Winter 2018 is about trying to find joy and escape within the spiral.
Inspired by summer kayaking trips and personal watercrafts, we imagine wearing the collection while eating flaming hot cheetos on a boat in the Hudson.
We are fitted with bungees, packing for a quick getaway.
The Spring/ Summer 2018 Serenity Collection started with healing. We felt the urge to cling to rocks. To feel grounded. To practice self-care and collective care of our community. We looked at zen gardens, salt baths and healing crystals. As the grounding rocks have gone deeper underground, our energy has begun to heat up and become liquefied, molten. We feel a volcanic energy right now; things are about to burst, but new land is forming. It’s a chaotic, exciting time.
For Autumn/Winter 2017, we took inspiration from life vests and floatation devices designed for extended survival in rough, open water. We collaborated with innovative outdoors company Klymit to design inflatable garments that aid with internal buoyancy and help the wearer stay afloat and protected.
The Chromat Spring/Summer 2017: HYPERWAVE collection is inspired by the strength and power of professional female athletes like Serena Williams, Simone Manuel and flyboard world champion Gemma Weston, who push both their bodies and their sport to the extreme.
The Chromat Autumn/Winter 2016 LUMINA Collection is inspired by the color theory and light explorations of conceptual artists Robert Irwin and Dan Flavin combined with the biological functions of electroluminescence.

The Chromat Spring/Summer 2016: MOMENTUM Collection is inspired by clothing that responds and adapts to the wearer.
Chromat sportswear functions to empower the body to be stronger, faster and perform at optimum levels.
The Chromat SS16 Swimwear collection was designed for women taking over the world. The Chromat woman wears her swimsuit and lingerie both day and night, at the rooftop pool or for an evening out. In every situation, she is unapologetic and empowered. This is a celebration of that woman.
The Chromat Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection explores the transfer of human consciousness to new forms, utilizes artificial intelligence and expands the concepts of innovator Martine Rothblatt's post-human Mindfiles to envision an entirely (wo)man-made, synthetic world of bionic bodies.
In this world, synthetic garments function as artificial augmentation and enhancements of the human body.
The Chromat Spring/Summer 2015 “Formula 15” Collection was inspired by the parallel ideologies of conceptual artist Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing Series and the process of tracking athletic movement through the use of wearable technology.
Chromat’s Formula 15 Collection imagines a world where clothing will be downloaded online and garments will function as data machines to both observe and empower the reality of our bodies.
