The combination of technology and fashion is showing all the horrors of adolescence.
For every cool new idea that promises to revolutionize what we wear (dresses made with 3-D printers, fitness and health trackers), there’s an example of the sort of awkwardness — in form, function or price — that makes it clear wearables at large are still not ready for prime time. Not everyone can pull off Michael Schmidt and Francis Bitonti’s 3-D printed nylon dress like Dita Von Teese, price tags on many wearable tech items are still sky high and interest in gadgets can wane (see Nike’s FuelBand).
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
