Even a designer at fashion house Christian Dior can’t get her hands on a gold iPhone.

Camille Miceli, Dior’s artistic director of accessories, loves her iPhone. According to a Q&A with the Wall Street Journal, she spends every morning reading daily “Le Monde” on it in bed. (Oh la la!)

Though we harbored doubts before the debut that it was the epitome of tacky, Apple’s golden iPhone 5S mines current fashion trends – the color has been glimmering more on store shelves by a whopping 88 percent.

CES-2013-57

CES 2013 bug LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – With seven groovy, psychedelic colors to switch between for backlighting, Luvvitt’s new Ultra Thin Keyboard Cover would no doubt have been Timothy Leary’s keyboard of choice — had iPad Minis, iPads or technology in general been around in the ’60s.

Wired For Sound With C.VOX Audio Jacket [Review]

Wired For Sound With C.VOX Audio Jacket [Review]

That’s me, that is. No really.

This is the C.VOX, a coat with a built-in sound system so you can listen to stuff anywhere you go, while you’re going there. It’s kind of cool and kind of weird. I’ve been wearing it for the last wintry week or so here in the UK, and here’s what it’s like to own one.

@Peter Ellenby, shot with an iPhone 4 and Hipstamatic’s “WMag Freepak” lens.

September is back-to-fashion month, when glossy magazines bulge at the seams with their biggest issues of the year.

To celebrate its fashion-packed September issue, W magazine partnered with Hipstamatic for a new lens called “WMag Freepak,” offered free to download in-app until September 2, and launched a contest that will earn the winner a chance to shoot for the magazine.

Photographer Peter Ellenby, a self-taught shutterbug who has lived in San Francisco, shooting bands, events, portraits and fashion since 1994, took the WMag lens on a trial run for pics that will appear in an upcoming edition of Hipstamatic’s iPad magazine Snap.

Here are his tips for photographing fashion, including why you should save money on a studio but always accessorize your shots with a touch of crazy.

Camera Straps Made From Neckties

Camera Straps Made From Neckties

Looking good! The Camera Strap Necktie.

I don’t own a necktie, and I haven’t been clean-shaven since sometime in the mid-to-late 1990s. But that doesn’t mean I can’t brush up nice and get all dressed up from time to time. Which is why I’m seriously considering one of Photojojo’s smart-looking Camera Strap Neckties.

Cloth, The Best iPhone App For Fashionistas, Can Now Tell You What To Wear Based Upon The Weather

Cloth, The Best iPhone App For Fashionistas, Can Now Tell You What To Wear Based Upon The Weather

As a professional blogger, the only fashion choices I make involve whether to blog from my torn boxers or my filthy briefs, or whether I should accessorize my t-shirt with a mustard or mayonaise blotch.

That said, at heart, I’ve always admired the fancy lads with pants to match who put themselves together with an eye towards fashion, and so I’ve always been a big fan of Cloth, an iPhone app that allows you to put together a database of your best outfits and scroll through them for inspiration, rate them according to how good you look and even share them on Twitter or Facebook with friends.

The only thing Cloth couldn’t do up until now was tell you what to wear… but that’s just changed, thanks to a partnership with Weather Underground that will allow Cloth to automatically suggest outfits appropriate to the weather outside.

Monster’s Not Even Pretending Anymore: It Finally Becomes a Fashion Company [CES 2012]

Monster’s Not Even Pretending Anymore: It Finally Becomes a Fashion Company [CES 2012]

The Diamond Tears in black (they'll also be available in white)

Monster’s Not Even Pretending Anymore: It Finally Becomes a Fashion Company [CES 2012]LAS VEGAS, CES 2012 – Or maybe it’s that they’re pretending even less. The amount of bling at the Monster “booth” — it was actually more of a compound, complete with a super-secret inner sanctum — would make Snooki (who was at the show) blush. Their three newly released headphones seemed far more focused on fashion than sound; even Monster founder Nole Lee’s Segway (was it a Segway?) rolled around on gold-rimmed wheels. Then there were the booth fashion shows…

The Apple Collection Was Everything That Was Wrong With Late 80s Apple [Gallery]

The Apple Collection Was Everything That Was Wrong With Late 80s Apple [Gallery]

In 1985, after a power struggle developed between Steve Jobs and John Sculley, Apple Computer’s charismatic co-founder was forced out of the company his vision had created. For the next twelve years, the company foundered, lost marketshare hand over fist and almost went bankrupt before Jobs returned to the company in 1997 to put things right.

We all know that story. Still, it’s amazing how just one item from the dark years can hilariously put the disconnect between pre- and post-Jobs Apple in sharp relief. Could anything better exemplify the now-amusing differences in vision between Apple under Jobs and Apple under Sculley than this 1987 relic, The Apple Catalogue?
