More designers are going all out to design tech accessories for the fashionable set.
Michael Kors has a compact `mirror which doubles as a portable battery, and the fitness tracker Fitbit can now look more stylish with printed cases from Tory Burch.
To make its tech more wearable, tech giant Google tapped fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg to create five new frames and eight new shades for Google Glass, its wearable computer that takes photos, provides navigation and sends messages.
Here are some stylish accessories with tech functions available here:
Proenza Schouler's luxe headphones (left) provide rich, warm sounds and a lot of street cred. It is constructed with quality cow hide
and lined with soft lambskin. You can get them from Club 21's e-commerce site (http://eshop.club21global.com) for $893.
Ralph Lauren will be launching its Ricky Bag with Light (above) next month.
Crafted in Italy from black calfskin with rose gold-plated hardware, the bag has a discreet rechargeable battery which powers an internal LED light so searching for things will be much easier. It also has a USB port to charge mobile devices.
This functional beauty costs US$5,000 (S$6,670).
You can pre-order it at the Ralph Lauren Boutique (B1-72 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands).
