Hollywood continues to have a love/hate relationship with the paparazzi. For famous faces looking to stay one step ahead of the paps, a local DJ has designed a collection of reflective clothing that just may screw up these relentless celeb spotters's sketchy source of income.
Paul McCartney's opening DJ Chris Holmes presents the Anti-Paparazzi Collection, which features a hoodie, infinity scarf, and blazer made of fabric that deflects light from flashing cameras. "While I wasn't thrilled that many of these photos were ruined because of my clothing, it gave me the epiphany that perhaps I could use this technology for a greater purpose," Holmes notes on San Francisco-based online clothing community Betabrand.
