It’s true: Phone batteries are getting progressively shitter as the years go by. You know something else? Tinder Addiction is real, and you shouldn’t have to stop scrolling through hilarious photos of dudes at their own weddings just because a phone charger won’t fit into a handbag that’s already crammed with $2,000 of technological innovation. Luckily nobody understands this like eBay and the Council of Fashion Designers of America — or at least they’re hip to your qualms, because they’ve come up with a range of bracelets that double as USB smartphone chargers.
What happens when you team up with a robotics designer and construct a dress using super-organza, structured plastic, and glow-in-the-dark-thread? The dress comes to life, like real life.
If you have the pluck to put a $100,000 cellphone on the market, it doesn’t surprise us that you deem it worthy of a Paris Couture Week debut. Savelli, a new high-technology-meets-artisan-craftmanship purveyor, is introducing what they claim to be the first collection of luxury smartphones designed specifically for women.

We have to admit, we are wont to get lost every now and then. Sometimes all the corners of a big city just looks the same! So maybe we should pick up a pair of these GPS-enabled oxfords to ensure that we can always find our way home!
Finally, a smartphone app that will tell you which of your socks match! And it gives the anti-cheating ring a run for its money in the totally useless product category.
At this point, anything American Apparel can do to make money, it probably should do. But that motivation doesn’t really explain the new site-to-store reservation system the financially beleaguered company is implementing in November.
We’d totally be on a first-class flight to Paris right now for the Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs spring summer 2011 show on the 6th. Except we weren’t invited and couldn’t afford to go if we were. But we do have the next best thing.
How do you text message effectively if, at the same time, you need to be doing something else? What is the best way to hold your iPod while also downing an iced latte? When the iPad came out, a series of accessories quickly followed, and it was only a matter of time before something fashion related followed suit.
Maybe it’s our inner geek speaking, but lately we find comical all the adroit attempts by the fashion clique to mingle with the runny nosed techies. Consider the notoriously icy, Tiffany & Co.‘s most recent virtual foray: The Engagement Ring Finder.
