Only in Japan – The LED-Illuminated Upskirt Skirt


Japanese designer Kiyoyuki Amano has combined fashion and technology to create futuristic short skirts that illuminate the wearer’s thighs. Aptly named ‘Hikaru Skirt’, which means ‘Shining Skirt’, the garment comes equipped with LED lights and the miniature gyro sensors on the inside. So the skirt lights up, and the color and pattern of the light changes every time the wearer moves.

Amano said that he first placed light bulbs inside a skirt on a whim, and that’s when he noticed that it created a pleasant illumination of the thighs. So he worked on the design some more and soon created a whole line of LED-illuminated minis. The Hikaru skirts, he said, are meant to bridge the gap between everyday fashion and cosplay.

On January 16, Amano launched a Tumblr page dedicated to his unique creation. He hasn’t revealed a launch date or a price range yet, but it’s only a matter of time before the skirts become a regular feature on the streets of Tokyo.


If you’d actually wear one of these up skirt illuminated Hikaru skirts, maybe you should consider an LED smile to go with it.
