Modern Fashion Tech: The Best Style Gadgets

Think James Bond has the best gadgets in town? Think again.

With a whole host of bags, jewelry and watches all featuring inbuilt technology, 2017 is the year of fashion tech.

We take a look at some of the best brands on the market.


Jekyll & Hyde

Based in both Cape Town and London, Jekyll & Hide presents a large collection of technology themed purses, laptop cases and bags.

With RFID technology included in select wallets and bags, contactless card identities are kept safe and protected from electronic card cloning fraud.


Ringly taps into the ‘smart’ market with its range of Bluetooth enabled notification jewelry and accessories.

With a firm fashion focus, pieces in the range present a sleek, feminine appearance that notify the wearer of incoming texts, emails and calls via coloured LEDs and vibrating patterns.

Happy Plugs

Known for its minimalistic Scandinavian design, fashion tech brand Happy Plugs launched a range of Deluxe Marble laptop skins last year for a/w 16.

With the aim of adding a layer of sophistication and modern elegance to Macbooks, the skins come in three colours: white, green and black.

3M Controltac technology allows for easy application, maximum hold and residue-free removal.


June by Netatmo measures sun exposure in order to provide its wearer with a real-time UV index.

The device, worn as a bracelet, sends personalized notifications to an app, advising its wearer on SPF protection and how to prevent skin aging.

June’s metal centre piece can be styled on a double leather strap, or on a silicon band for athletic activities.

Herschel Supply

Founded in 2009 by brothers Jamie and Lyndon Cormack, Herschel Supply adopted the name of the town where three generations of their family grew up.

Based in Vancouver, Canada, Herschel Supply offers a vast accessories range with strong attention to detail.

The brand’s range of Tech Sleeves remain one of the brand’s bestselling items.

Featuring a clean, simple design and timeless quality, the laptop sleeves embody the classic Herschel Supply look.

Mighty Purse

Serving as a fusion between fashion and technology, Mighty Purse bags, backpacks, and wristlets contain a lightweight battery that can fully recharge smartphones.

It’s compatible with all micro-USB models including Samsung TM, HTC, BlackBerry and LG.

It’s also compatible with Apple’s iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPads using a Mighty Purse Apple Licensed Adapter.

Thesis Couture

Claiming to have produced the world’s first high performance stilettos, Thesis Couture present a high heel shoe (four inches, to be precise) that is also functional and, dare we say, comfortable.

Founder Dolly Singh has hired a rocket scientist, an orthopaedic surgeon, a mechanical engineer, a shoe designer and an Italian shoemaker to create a shoe that fuses comfort with style.

A ballistic-grade polymer in the heel stops the shoe from feeling so painful underfoot, while the angle and the platform at the front enables the wearer to feel like they’re wearing something an inch lower than it actually is.

We’re reserving judgement until we try it.
