“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Gabrielle Chanel
Fashion is not just about clothes; it’s a lifestyle. It is about the clothes you wear, the car you drive, the restaurants you dine at, and, in an exceedingly technology-driven world, it’s (obviously) about the gadgets you own. Fashion’s creative geniuses have successfully penetrated the technological world, as cutting-edge tech accessories stamped with some of the most covetable luxury logos are fast becoming common.
Here are four of the coolest tech accessories on the market that are both fashionable and functional.
Fendi x Chaos
The Fendi x Chaos Fall/Winter 2020 capsule collection is a unique collaboration between the Italian house and the London-based accessories brand, Chaos. The collection features a series of “tech jewelry” pieces that elevate everyday accessories into glamorous tools. The luxe collaboration reimagines signature accessories from Hollywood’s golden era for the modern world. Inspired by vintage cigarette cases, gold lighters, and evening clutches, the premiere Fendi x Chaos collection is designed to transform smart devices into jewel-like accessories.
Crafted to perfection, each case can be clipped onto the season’s Fendi belts, chain lanyards, or any Fendi handbag. A smart multifunctional gold and silver pen – that works on both paper and tablets – doubles as an earring. The collectible tech accessories range also includes a covetable laptop sleeve adorned with fur and shearling protective panels.
Louis Vuitton 'Horizon' Wireless Earphones
Designed in collaboration with Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh, the latest addition to Louis Vuitton’s ‘Horizon’ collection features wireless earphones embossed with black matte acetate, neon green accents, and the house’s signature monogram.
The new earphones are a far cry from merely a fresh look. Integrating new innovative technology, the earphones feature a ‘Noise Reduction’ mode to decrease external noise and a ‘Transparency’ mode that allows users to stay aware while listening. The renewed battery will enable users to use the earphones for 30 hours with one 10-hour charge. Further, the charging case – which mirrors the design of the ‘Tambour Horizon’ watch – can charge the earphones fully (not once but twice) when charged to full capacity. Not only do the new ‘Horizon’ earphones boast one of the finest audio qualities, but they are also fitted with two microphones that can be used separately.
Rimowa 'Groove' iPhone Cases
Much more than just an iPhone case, Rimowa’s ‘Groove’ iPhone case collection promises to protect your smartphone without compromising on style. An extension of the brand’s travel range, the polycarbonate cases are now available in iPhone 12 sizes. Additionally, the brand has also launched a new matte black-colored case. Thin, lightweight, and shockproof, Rimowa’s cases feature a TPU bumper that allows the user a comfortable grip on their smartphone.
Apple Watch Hermès Series 6
Dubbed as the “ultimate union of heritage and innovation” by Apple, the ‘Apple Watch Hermès’ is a hyper luxe iteration of the smartwatch. Embossed with the luxury label’s logo, the dial of the watch comes in two colors. Further, users can even accessorize existing Apple watches with elegant Hermès bands that are available in several designs, colors, lengths, and leathers. Switching to sports mode? Update your watch with a flexible and water-resistant Hermès Sport Band.
