FIN­ISH­ING TOUCH

Wear­able tech can be fash­ion-for­ward.

Do you re­mem­ber when fash­ion seemed to go wear­able-mad? It was 2015, and the Ap­ple Watch had made its de­but with var­i­ous de­sign­ers rush­ing to merge fash­ion with tech­nol­ogy that you could wear. Fast-for­ward to 2018’s Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show in Las Ve­gas and there were far fewer fash­ion types on the con­ven­tion floor. Was this an ad­mis­sion that maybe fash­ion doesn’t need to be so tech­ni­cal? Or was it a pivot away from aes­thet­ics to­ward ma­te­rial fab­ri­ca­tions and re­tail ef­fi­cien­cies? Ei­ther way, few would com­plain about a Fit­bit that pushes you to­ward a health­ier, more ac­tive life. Es­pe­cially one set in a resin and brass bracelet from Tory Burch.
