This piece is constructed using industrial grade materials that have extreme reflective abilities when exposed to artificial light. Just make sure to turn the flash on.
Can it be washed in the washing machine or does that ruin it ?
Never wash our jacket in the washing machine!
The jacket reflects light directly to the source due to microscopic crystalline patterns that are embedded into directly into the fabric. If the material becomes scratched in a wash, it will cause the reflected light to scatter instead of returning to the source, so you will see diffused boring grey rather than the glowing effect.
You can carefully spot clean the jacket with a soft towel or dry clean only.
In person will this jacket appear bright-white as it does in the images above?
You can see this effect in person, but it is more noticeable in low lighting. It will always achieve this effect through flash photography regardless of the lighting situation.
