Wearable tech seems to be the latest frontier fashion labels are getting into a frenzy over. Tory Burch just launched Fitbit Flex, a fitness tracker you can wear on your wrist or as a pendant. Diane von Furstenberg released a collection in collaboration with Google Glass. Now, Rebecca Minkoff is getting in on the fun and is due to debut a new five-piece line of wearable tech items during New York Fashion Week.

Minkoff teamed with Case-Mate on the project, focusing on camouflaging the capabilities of her accessories with stylish accents. In addition to the obligatory iPhone case, the range will offer an external charger and wristlets. Also on tap is a pyramid-clasp studded leather bracelet that transforms into a lightning cord allowing the user to charge or connect their mobile devices. Minkoff’s collection also boasts a chain-link bracelet that will notify the wearer when they get a call or a text. 

A few of the items are expected to launch in September, which will be available at Nordstrom and RebeccaMinkoff.com. The remainder of the collection will trickle out at the end of the year. Prices for the pieces start at $40 and peak at $120 for the notification bracelet.

CEO Uri Minkoff explained that the goal with this collection was to provide women with fashionable tech items that would actually be useful in everyday life. “Health is covered [in the wearable space] but at the end of the day, our customer comes to us for fashion — and as we look at this fashion-function mix, it’s really where she’s living. This is a hybrid area where we think we can have success with this customer,” he told WWD.

As of today, August 29, the activewear brand will apply property rights to its designs, aiming to protect the 70 to 100 styles it releases per month.

The most amazing thing about Lorna Jane is the garment development process, which creates a piece perfect for the gym junkie who likes to train mean comfortably. But the brand has told Ragtrader that plenty of other brands are releasing popular copycat designs, which use cheap fabrics and poor quality construction. (more…)

Kim Kardashian Rocks Baby Pink Toni Maticevski

Kim Kardashian just posted her OOTD to Instagram, featuring none other than Melbourne-based designer Toni Maticevski. Kim rocked a soft pink look, with a Balmain gold-buttoned blazer over a white Alaïa  bodysuit showing off her ample cleavage.

What brought the entire outfit together, though, was the statement baby pink skirt by Maticevski. The front-wrap detail, plus the structured thigh spilt and midi length, had the getup looking stylish and feminine. Kim topped it all off with strappy black Hermes heels. (more…)

Robyn Lawley Tries to Give Us a Sneak Peek of Her New Swimwear Collection

Getting us in the mood for warmer days ahead, Robyn Lawley has given us all a little sneak peek of what’s to come from her self-titled swimwear collection, Robyn Lawley Swimwear. The “plus-size” model has posted several pictures to her Instagram, showcasing the upcoming designs straight from the shoot in Vermont.

We can expect double-strap balconette bras with matching contrast bottoms as well as plunging one-pieces with strategic line work around the hip area. We want to say they’ll be black and white, but going off the poor-quality, filtered images, it looks like the white could actually be a neon yellow. Perhaps it’s just the Amaro filter at work — we’re not too sure. (more…)
