Fashion Meets Function
Every week I provide my company with a trend "snapshot" of what's hot right now. Last week I focused on 'When Fashion Meets Function.' I included shots of computers, cameras and phones that are fashionably cool. So today I come to work and I am checking out the Wall Street Journal and there's this article about Microsoft Chairman, Bill Gates, kicking off the 2008 Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas with a look at the latest innovations in "sleek, beautiful fashion computers." It's all about fashionable PC's. The Medion SIM2120, below left, has 300 Swarovski crystals embedded into its surface. The Ego-Signature, below right, is "crafted, personal and is assembled completely by hand." One of it's features is a "custom-made matching handbag." The Asus Lamborghini VX3, above right, has a leather-bound palm rest and comes in Lamborghini yellow. Not just any yellow, Lamborghini yellow! These ever-evolving gadgets are for those who want to make a style statement, and are now viewed as an accessory to ones wardrobe. What does your PC say about you?
