Gliding down the slopes of southeastern France at breakneck speed, William Hughes makes for an arresting sight. The effect is more than a little haunting: It’s nighttime, for one, and the Artec snowboarder is clad head to toe in an LED-studded snowsuit. Hughes is the star and subject of a video by fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton, who spent three nights in the Rhône-Alpes on a skidoo, at temperatures of -13 degrees Fahrenheit, to obtain the footage. Sutton sought the assistance of electronics expert John Spatcher, to custom-make the “temperamental” garment, an endeavor that took 300 man-hours to complete, according to Nowness, an online magazine by luxury group Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy.
