High-fashion is taking over our smartphones.
It’s no news that mobile technology and smartphones have forever changed our lives. The way we work, how we have fun, interact with our friends and family and with the world will never be the same (in fact, it’ll most probably still change quite a lot).
It’s then no surprise that fashion mavericks across the world are now dedicating more and more of their efforts to designing extremely fashionable ways to express ourselves through the multiple devices that follow us around no matter where we go.
In a way, it seems that luxury tech accessories will be the biggest flex in the year to come.
Take a look.
In Dior Men’s latest collection there’s an accessory line dubbed Hyper-Modern. “A series of cases designed for the electronic essentials of life today”, they say.
Dior’s collection includes iPhone cases in the house’s signature Oblique canvas, muted purple leather, as well durable plexiglass adorned with prints pulled from the work of seminal punk artist Raymond Pettibon. And yes, you got it right: they’re designed to hold two iPhones. “New necessities”, the house explains.
Tech accessories have also joined the world of Berluti, who recently announced a collaboration with NATIVE UNION.
“This collaboration is all about paying respect to traditions while linking them with the contemporary lifestyle,” says Igor Duc, CEO at NATIVE UNION, well known for its design-minded charging cables and other tech-related accessories. “NATIVE UNION accessories’ intelligent and user-centric design combines beautifully with Berluti’s savoir-faire and age-old heritage in leather application. This is the collection for anyone looking for a truly bespoke, one-of-a-kind phone case or charger”, he ads.
If in 2017 Louis Vuitton launched the Tambour Horizon smartwatch, combining the house’s codes and craftsmanship with Google’s Wear OS system, now it’s coming for our ears.
The maison has recently announced a collaborative set of wireless earbuds with Master & Dynamic. Meant to pair with the house’s smartwatch, the earbuds come in a leather case and will be available in three variations.
