You might recall in 2015 Pharrell Williams had a major style moment on the red carpet. Not the Vivienne Westwood hat, that was 2014, in 2015 the N.E.R.D star wore a two piece khaki suit in 3M reflective fabric that turned white when photographed with a flash.

The look met with mixed reviews, in many circles it was perceived as the right idea in the wrong style.

Flash forward to today, fashion label Xander Zhou and Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster may have found the right style for this tech fabric. The two major labels collaborated on a new raincoat which features a detachable hood, a sealed phone pocket, a removable scarf and the special 3M reflective fabric.

Similar to Pharrell’s fashion tech, when the raincoat is hit with a flash of light the reflective fabric glows.
