The opulent worlds of tech and fashion are colliding like never before. Wearable technology has become the next big thing, and the rage surpasses prototypical gadgets like connected eyewear such as Google Glass and smart timepieces such as Apple’s iWatch and pay by tweet features for runway shows. The next generation of technologically advanced gadgets with a strong fashion aesthetic to appeal to both the multibillion dollar industries are already emerging. A genius amalgamation, the innovations taking place are profoundly amazing and transformative. Here’s a look at some of the haute tech trends in fashion.
Audio Mini Clutch
Stellé Audio clutches snap open to expose a built-in Bluetooth sound system that packs a solid punch in terms of volume and style. The clutch also charges your phone when you’re on the go and makes for a chic and stylish accessory with luminous embellishments. Stelle has been known to deliver ground breaking wireless audio products with a much sought after predecessor – a clutch speaker which was used as the official accessory at Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring 2013 collection showcase.
Lightning Cable Bracelet
Another stellar innovation is Rebecca Minkoff’s cable bracelet. A fabulous bracelet that just so happens to charge your phone. Hidden inside the gold metal clasp is a USB connector with a lightning cable so you can charge and sync your iPhone whenever needed.
Made from soft luxurious fabric, the Knomo Dering Power Purse comes with an integrated battery charger that charges your smartphone and stores other essentials. Place your phone in the dedicated padded section and connect it with the integrated 3000mah battery via the included cable to charge.
Powerlace Auto-Lacing Sneakers
This infinitely practical and super-stylish innovations is the latest sensation in the industry. As soon as you put your feet into the Powerlace, the system will slowly tighten the laces all on its own accord. It uses a robust, waterproof upper, with a full-length soft midsole and an abrasion-resistant non-marking sole. Thanks to the addition of a small lever on the back end of the shoe, you can adjust the tension of the laces to find the sweet spot of foot snugness, as well as to loosen the laces in order to take off the shoe.
