"GUARD" / zipper

How would you feel when somebody euphemistically tell you that your pants are zip-open?Embarrassed? Agitated? Worried? During the design process of “GUARD”, we noticed an interesting phenomenon. When people realized that his pants are zip-open, the button above the zip is actually buckled. That is to say, people usually have the sub-consciousness to buckle the button, but they can’t be a hundred percent sure that they remember to zip the zip, especially when they’re distracted. So what if the button and the zip are integrated? When the zip has the function of a button, people will have to zip it when they subconsciously buckle the button.
