Paparazzi-proof clothing embedded with reflective glass

Paparazzi-proof clothing embedded with reflective glass

This comes as good news for celebrities who are irritated by stalking paparazzi who always follow them around to take pictures of them. While some stars crave for attention, at times they also want a moment of privacy.

The new unveiled paparazzi-proof clothing line, the Flashback Collection, may change their lives. In this new line of fashion, clothes are embedded with shards of glass to deflect the lights and the photographers’ flashes, making it impossible to see the face or features of the person targeted.

The directive comes from Steven Wheeler, a senior designer at online clothing company Betabrand.

The clothes turn the wearer into invisible, ghostly silhouettes. Conceived by DJ Chris Holmes, the hoodie, hat, scarf and suit were made using the very same reflective material found on running shoes and safety gear. Specially manufactured glass nano-spheres are bonded to the fabric to act as tiny reflective lenses, giving the clothes their shine.

"It's taking light and shoving it right back into the camera, which is what blows up the exposure," Wheeler explains.

The entire process—idea conception to building a prototype—took less than a month. Holmes presented the idea to Betabrand in early January, and it burned through the internet, grabbing more than 550 votes. After just a day or two, Wheeler began working on sketching up designs. Three weeks later, the pieces are now on sale.

Clothing is now on sale on their website, where the Flashback Illuminati Suit Jacket goes for around $400, and the full suit costs up to $520. The clothing company plans to go into wider production if a piece sells enough during crowdfunding, usually 50 to 100 pieces in the first 30 days.
