These clothes are made for shinin'

The French seems to have a different appreciation of fashion that regular folks like you and me struggle to understand. Here's why:

Don't know what this is? Well, it's a minitop with fibre optics embedded into the fabric. Designed by French outfit LumiGram, this range of glowing clothes made of fibre-optic fabric can be powered either by disposable (1.5V) or rechargeable (1.2V) batteries. Or, if you don't mind standing around like a Christmas tree, by a small mains transformer. According to LumiGram, the illumination can last more than 10 hours with fully charged batteries. You can also get similar handbags, decorations and even fibre optic hair, all from LumiGram at an unspecified price.

A sighting on the high street of this new "advancement" in fashion is unlikey to be the norm anytime soon. My thoughts on this? If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, riddle them with bullets.

Well, I'm pretty sure people will get a kick out of wearing these, electric or otherwise.

Btw, congrats on your promotion. Sure hope it comes with a similar promotion in pay.
