Even though fashion editors are displaying the Apple watch left and right, including Anna Wintour, no one integrates fashion and tech with the same flare as Betsey Johnson.
While the presence of tech in fashion has become more avant-garde in 2015 with advancements such as a fashionable version of the Fitbit by Tory Burch and a tech dress by Chromat, which was debuted at NYFW, Betsey Johnson proved that simpler applications of tech can be more amusing. This time, instead of an outrageous tutu, the charismatic, cart-wheeling designer opened her infinite dress-up box to retailers with an old-fashioned phone purse.
The innovative use of a phone in place of a normal leather handle is more practical than you may think. The curly cord leads to a USB inside the handbag that plugs into your smart phone. With this, you can literally talk on the Betsey Johnson phone, with your smart phone incognito.
While talking on the phone may get you a few scrutinizing glances, if you don’t mind a little humorous speculation, give your go-to clutch a night off, and accessorize your LBD with a phone purse. After all, it is only one click, swipe or “rrring!” away.
