As Fashion Week approaches, I anticipate seeing a lot of new wearable tech pieces hitting the runway. Fashion companies have embraced wearable tech accessories transforming them into stylish jewelry pieces to fit the always connected and the on the go lifestyle of 20- and 30-somethings.
Most of the accessories are low hanging fruit — mobile chargers or alert notification systems for their mobile devices — but the willingness for both the tech and fashion worlds to collaborate promises a bright and fashionable future for wearables.
Rebbeca Minkoff is the latest designer to offer stylish accessories to juice your mobile phone or to offer you alerts of incoming call. The accessories will run between $60 – $120 — affordable considering Ringly starts at $195.
Cute Circuit will be showing their second collection tomorrow on September 4rth at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Pioneers in the space of illuminated fashion, Cute Circuit has been making gorgeous illuminated wearables for over a decade.
Stay tuned for more coverage. It’s going to be an exciting month!
