This piece is constructed using industrial grade materials that have reflective abilities when exposed to light. Make sure to turn the flash on when taking a picture.
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 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 a diffused grey color 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 light settings. It will always achieve this effect through flash photography regardless of the lighting situation.
