Fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton lights up the powdery slopes of Tignes Ski Resort in southeastern France with this short film featuring a custom L.E.D. snowboarding suit designed by John Spatcher. Worn by snowboarder Will Hughes, the suit has L.E.D. nodes spaced 25mm apart, which is tight enough to highlight a person's silhouette and maintain flexibility. The suit also contains internal batteries and is designed to operate at -18°C. Could this be the future of fashion? Either way, the snowboarders carving action combined with the illuminated suit certainly creates a rare and stunning nighttime effect. Full article click here
