There are two things we love: cool future tech and fashion. Do you know what we love, even more? Fashion Tech! When these two worlds meet you can only expect the coolest of gadgets that any fashionista would love! Judy Jetson eat your heart out!

1. iGlam Smart Jewelry

IGLAM showcased its new LED colour changing jewellery at this years CES 2019 convention in Las Vagas, and we are loving it. You can now customize the colour of your LED ring with a smartphone app to match any outfit or mood. The battery lasts up to 5 hours and comes with a portable charging pack if your party runs longer than expected.

2. Michael Kors’ Sofie 2.0 Smartwatch

Not all smartwatches need to look dull and sporty. When Micheal Kors unveiled the first Sofie watch it had all the looks, but not much else. The new version gives you the best of both; good looks and smart tech. Sofie 2.0 now offers heart rate monitoring, NFC payments, GPS tracking and the latest version of Wear OS in a stylish exterior of a fashion watch.

3. Royole x Louis Vuitton Handbag

The tech company who brought you the FlexPai device with its Flexi screen technology partnered up with fashion giant Louis Vuitton for the runway at Cruise 2020. We are glad that the fashion industry is open to embrace future tech as part of its aesthetics. The handbags known as The Canvas of the Future bags are made from the classic brown and cream Louis Vuitton monogram motif PVC-coated canvas, with black patent leather, and feature built-in flexible OLED digital screens.

It was described by the brand as “cutting-edge fusion of technology and craft”

4. MOTIV smart ring

Probably one of the smallest tech items on this list, these stylish rings come in various different colour titanium designs. These smart rings are waterproof and mostly life proof. It works in the same way that a smartwatch would, monitoring your heart rate, your step count and even helps with your online security by adding additional steps to your online login process by using the ring as part of the verification.

5. Kate Spade Scallop Smartwatch 2

We can’t resist adding another smartwatch to this list. I mean, just look at this sexy smartwatch from Kate Spade! With built-in GPS, a heart rate monitor, and an NFC chip for contactless payment, it packs a powerful punch and looks great while doing it.


We love it when things come together and with the collaboration of fashion brands and tech giants we can now enjoy our tech and still look good while doing it! No more chunky fitness watches and unsightly OTT techy looking devices. The future of fashion is now!
