From “liquid metal” trousers to printed knits and boots, welcome to the future of fashion

Heliot Emil is an early adopter. Using material inventions, like its popular “liquid metal” trousers, and technological innovations, the Danish brand embodies a low-key futurism. Ever since its launch in 2016 by brothers Julius and Victor Juul, Heliot Emil has refused to adhere to any standards set by the fashion industry.


This is especially true of its foray into 3D printing. During Heliot Emil’s latest show – the brand’s debut on the Paris runways – a fragile, no-waste knit and sturdy boots were born of a printer.
