When it comes to push­ing the bound­aries be­tween dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy and fash­ion, Dutch de­signer Iris van Her­pen comes se­cond to none. The 2014 AN­DAM Fash­ion Award win­ner gal­vanises fash­ion into ex­treme con­tra­dic­tions, as ex­em­pli­fied in her Spring/Sum­mer ’16 col­lec­tion – laser cut fish­net gowns came with seem­ingly weight­less armour, while syn­thetic ma­te­ri­als turned crys­tals into veils of ef­fer­ves­cent mag­nif­i­cence. Cel­e­brat­ing the de­signer’s con­cep­tual DNA is this year’s ‘Iris Van Her­pen: Trans­form­ing Fash­ion’ ex­hi­bi­tion. The next best thing af­ter all those sparkly jew­els? Daz­zling ex­tras that go the dis­tance. Sync your life with some of tech­nol­ogy’s most in­ge­nious wear­ables that are more chic

than geek.
