Would you like to look like a squid?

OK. Maybe the attention-grabbing headline is somewhat facetious but there is some truth to it!

This jacket mimics the camouflage of squids and it does it in an interesting way. Using fabric, resin and billions of glass spheres, a team over at Vollebak used lasers to meld the different materials together. This allows light to reflect in diferent ways from the surface of the resulting cloth. The jacket made from the material looks slickly black in normal light but under bright light it reflects rainbow shimmers. At £795, the jacket is not for everyone but for someone who wants to be extra trendy, this is the bee's knees!
