This isn’t a clip from Jil Sander’s Runway Show… promise.
As technology becomes more prevalent in our lives, the emerging coinciding fashion trend seems to have an emphasis on futuristic. Some of it is quirky (say, DVF for Google Glass), some of it innovative (3D-printed jewelry? Yes, please), and some of it… questionable.
Meet the Nova Shoe Chrome Vinyl Wedges by Zaha Hadid for United Nude from Luisaviaroma. This exclusive edition heel is an interesting take on the phantom heel wedge, with a 160mm Carbon fiber wedge heel and a 60mm Carbon fiber internal platform. Although these are certainly heels that will get you noticed, I’m not so sure how much sex appeal they have. But then again, if you feel like a sexy show stopper in these, that’s really all that matters, anyway.
What do you think of these wedges? Would you wear them?
The much-anticipated Google Glass went on sale last Monday, June 23. Although they retail for $1,500 normally, the Diane Von Furstenberg costs $1,800 (although it costs only $152 to make).
The DVF | Made For Glass collection is on sale for a limited time, and is available in five colors: black, teal, plum, brown and white. Each pair comes equipped with removable shades (remember flip frames, anyone?), a mono earbud, and case.
Considering DVF’s Spring 2013 collection show at NYFW in 2012, in which her and Google co-founder Sergey Brin showed Google Glass for the first time ever on models on the runway, it is not surprising that DVF would be the first designer to unveil Google Glass for sale.
The video above shows DVF & Isabelle Olsson as they chat about the evolution of the Made for Glass collaboration.
Would you purchase a pair of these bad boys? What do you think of the design?
