Dior Cells


Following in the footsteps of Prada and Armani, Dior has just launched their own designer cell phone branded as "My Dior". Roughly the size of a USB key it features a camera, a touchscreen display, and it is meant to clip onto your purse/bag and intended to be worn for quick and easy access (similar to the idea of how an ipod shuffle would be clipped somewhere easily accessible). However, the suggested retail for this item is $5000 so I'm not sure if I would wear it somewhere it could easily get lost or snatched, but it would definitely be an extravagant accessory. It is interesting that the major fashion ateliers have expanded their empires to now include cell phones and it will be interesting to see the extent to which cell phones may be designed.

Yay to Dior cells!!!
