When it comes to wearable tech, we have, admittedly, turned our noses up at the thought (we simply couldn't get past the idea that it would be clunky, awkward, and clashing). But then we started seeing different designers put their spin on the trend and suddenly we realized that there are some pieces that deserve a second look. Most recently, Rebecca Minkoff, one of our favorite designers, has come on board with a wearable tech collection. Minkoff is starting with two bracelets--one with a lightning phone charger and another that will send an alert when something happens on the wearers phone (think Facebook alerts, low battery, new emails, ect.). The bracelets will retail for $60 for the charger bracelet and $120 for the notification braceslet, and in true Rebecca Minkoff form both will come in various colors,which we can't wait to see.
Fashion month is upon us, which means our Instagram feed will soon be flooded with images from models, fashion bloggers, and street style photogs. But this year, there's only one Instagram account that's on our radar: Barbie's. Yes, Barbie, as in the Mattel doll with the ridiculous measurements and covet-worthy style. No stranger to Fashion Week--she's collabed with heavy hitters like Karl Lagerfeld, Vera Wang, and Versace, held a runway show in the Big Apple to celebrate her 50th anniversary, and even co-hosted a party with the CFDA--Barbie will be taking Fashion Month by storm, hitting all four cities (New York, London, Milan, and Paris) and documenting her travels along the way. Follow her @BarbieStyle to see snaps of her outfits and some of her favorite places in each city, as well as meetings with industry insiders.
