LED Illuminated Knitwear

I looooveee looveee this illuminated scarf and top by Mary Huang from rhyme&reason. "rhyme&reason" is an exploration in using light as a material to create transformative fashions. Reflecting on the change from day to night, inconspicuous white knitwear is enlivened by illumination, creating a sense of magic and mystery for the wearer.When not being worn, the pieces double in function as lamps, avoiding the fate of hanging neglected in a closet," Huang said. The pieces are embeded with white LED light and the the power source came from an adapter that can be powered both from battery while being worn and wall power while not being worn which functioned as a light fixture. Genius!
