French car brand DS Automobiles has released a four-piece clothing range coated in living algae that sequesters carbon dioxide from the air and turns it into oxygen.

The capsule collection, which includes a bomber jacket, a trench coat and two T-shirts, uses the same photosynthesis process as plants, which is also performed by microorganisms such as algae.

In order to function the pieces need to be treated more like houseplants than standard garments, and require daily misting and regular sun exposure to keep the algae alive.
