Office Supplies x Fashion

I used to fantasize about wearable electronic gadgets that are fashionable enough to be on a runway show. And then I realize that, as of 2008, when Fashion meets office supplies and/or electronics, it almost only means mediocrity.

USB Cooler Necktie
Necktie with a Cooler.

Starting off, we have another office-compatible tie. This tie developed by Thanko has a built in USB-powered silicon cooler underneath the knot of it.The purpose of the tie is to provide ventilation in the neck and head area for guys who have to wear a tie in summer. Powered by a USB cable, the tie is turned on by a switch that reminisce a table lamp switch, on which you can control the speed of the fan. In the event that you do not have access to a computer, a separately-sold battery case that can fit into your shirt’s chest pocket is available. Also, with the use of the fan, there is always a wire hanging down from the tie whether or not you are trying to go for that look.

Keyboard Infused Jeans
Portable Keyboard.

Designed by Erik De Nijs, these pair of jeans are actually a bluetooth keyboard to a computer. The keyboard is infused in the front at the most convenient spot to lay your hands on. The back pocket is specially designed for your mouse and a pair of speakers are places on the outseam of the jeans around the knees area. To sum it up, there is also a joystick controller witfully placed right behind the fly of those jeans and I wonder why.

Convertibles Heels
Convertible Heels.

Both driving shoes and heels, these convertible heels designed by Sheila’s Wheels, focus on providing with a comfortable and healthy driving experience and the beauty most women would love. These pair of shoes are developed as a result of a research conducted by Sheila’s Wheel, a sub devision of a UK insurance company, uncovering that inappropriate footwear is regularly worn by British women when driving. The shoes have a grip pattern underneath the sole to provide better pedal control.

Privacy Sweater
Privacy Sweater.

If you hates to feel like there is always someone looking over your shoulders, trying to see what you are doing on the computer, this would be a good thing for you to have. Although this may seem to be a regular sweater, it provides you warmth and the privacy you need, just imagine wearing this in a cafe.■
