 I'm sure we can all agree: this jacket is out of this world!

I've been going crazy for holographic material lately, yet finding good quality pieces is no mean feat. But this jacket really is a thing of beauty. I found it on eBay, and immediately snapped it up for just £50. I already knew it'd be amazing, but when I actually received it through the post I was gobsmacked.

Perhaps my fascination with holograms stems back to my childhood, spent watching late 80s/early 90s films and cartoons with outlandish visions of the future. Hologram definitely fits in with that and I still harbour my own visions of people surfing the streets on their hover-boards, wearing fully holgraphic jumpsuits with chips implanted into their brain instead of having mobile phones and bizarre hairstyles!

Back to 2014 though, I've really admired the cut of many of the leather jackets on the high street over the past few years, despite harbouring a deep dislike for the actual leather. The cut on this is just perfect, it's exactly like that of the leather jackets I've so long admired, but in holographic form. You know when you put on an item clothing and it instantly feels like you've owned it forever? That's how it felt when I tried this on for the first time. It was love.

Fortunately enough for me, it was a beautiful sunny day when the parcel arrived through the post, judge for yourself how the bright sunshine brings out the iridescent nature of the material:
