The Sustainable 4: adidas, Stella McCartney, lululemon, and Kering invested in the biotech company Bolt Thread’s development of an ecological engineered mushroom based leather alternative. Perhaps you’ve come across one of the results: Stella McCartney’s ‘Frayme Mylo’, the world’s first luxury bag made of mycelium. It will be really interesting to follow this trend of synbio sustainable materials transform from only being a luxury space for experimentation due to scale, culture and tech to becoming accessible and the norm

Today I tested my friend’s new AI fashion platform! Perhaps you saw their pitch on @seedclub this past week 👀 They first had a photographer take 10 photos of me to feed into their model. Then I was instructed to select some images from the 63 AI generated editorial style photo samples. Now I patiently await the generated image results of me transformed into these styles ✨

“Ayan, what is it like to be a synthetic biologist?” Imagine instead of a desk, you have this sterile table top. For many hours, you sit at this table, hand glued to a pipette, which moves very small quantities of liquids. Those very small quantities of liquids contain intricate fragments of DNA you have designed, which you fuse with other pieces of DNA. After connecting all of the pieces together like a puzzle, you clone the final big piece so you have many copies. You precisely insert some of those copies into a very tiny living thing, like bacteria. Then you grow some of these tiny things to study how they react with this new custom DNA. You take the rest and immortalize them in a -80 °C freezer, where they wait frozen in time for future tests. This is one day in the life of a synthetic biologist. Each day is a new day, but many times it is the same day. The only thing different is you. As the days pass, you know slightly more. Eventually you might know enough to call it a discovery.

Check out the world’s first biodesign-native lifestyle brand: Normal Phenomena of Life (NPoL) They make consumer /synbio + biotech products. Like this bacteria (streptomyces) stained organic silk jacket, or this living T-shirt monogrammed with algae based ink. (Didn’t I tell you science was cool) https://normalphenomena.life/journal/

It would almost be too easy (relatively) to walk across Paris 😅 Quite a tiny place for all the hype. Which would fit into the low effort Parisian vibe tbh
