William Hughes’s LED Snowboarding Suit Lights Up the Nighttime Slopes November 03 2016
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.
