You Too Can Have an Anti-Paparazzi Privacy Scarf … But It’ll Cost a Pretty Penny



Rich celebrities want to be famous but only part-time so they want to deny those pesky paparazzi that photo of them sneaking into the convenience store at 2 a.m. to buy a box of Twinkies. No worries, there’s a scarf for that.

“In a world where the choice to remain anonymous is no longer a choice, Access All Brands launches the first ever consumer product precision-engineered to claim back your right to privacy, in a sophisticated and sexy manner.”

Presenting The ISHU collection of scarves and other accessories that use reflective tech to scatter camera flashes so that they obscure the wearer.  

Just check out this ISHU gallery of celebs using the scarf, including Cameron Diaz, Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritchie and DMX. 

Sorry the grey el-cheapo 199 pounds ($258) scarf is sold out. Not to worry. The standard red scarf is still available for a mere 289 pounds ($374). Or you can go all in with the special limited edition black scarf for a mere 355 pounds ($460). Unclear what Brexit may do to those prices, plus there will be—if there aren’t already—some Chinese knock-offs closer to your price point.

Privacy protecting garb ain’t a new thing and it isn’t always about protecting the 1 percent. You may remember Alex Harvey’s anti-drone stealth wear , which explored “the aesthetics of privacy and the potential for fashion to challenge authoritarian surveillance technologies.” Harvey created traditional Islamic dress with “silver-plated fabric that reflects thermal radiation, enabling the wearer to avert overhead thermal surveillance.”
