In a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kanye West traveled with the family to their home country of Armenia, where he was introduced to cutting-edge technology at the Tumo Center for Creative Technologies in Yerevan. The center has gained a global reputation due to its extraordinary contributions to 3-D printing technology and digital design, but West had a negative reaction to what he saw, exclaiming, “This is what I’m afraid of, because the internet destroyed the music industry and now this is what we’re afraid of with the textile industry.” Unfortunately, he’s entirely missing the mind-blowing improvements that technology can (and already has) made to the fashion industry. Instead of being limited to what the human hand can do, technology has made it possible to envision the most avant-garde, neoteric designs imaginable and then execute them to an unbelievably flawless degree (see: Iris Van Herpen). Furthermore, technology has injected fashion with a new form of utilitarianism, especially in the shape of multi-use “techcessories”. In the digital age, brands have worked tirelessly adopt new tech early and often, but never before have their efforts been more high fashion. Instead of clunky, unwieldy pieces, brands like Hermès and Dolce & Gabbana are offering up seriously sleek, beautiful accessories that fuse function with fashion in new and inventive ways.

Take a closer look at six techcessories that will change your life in this gallery.
