Apple has finally unveiled the iPhone to much anticipation. So what does this mean for fashion? Do we care? Should we care? The short answer is yes! This latest gadget from Apple combines your mobile with the internet and MP3 player costing around £250. (start saving now)
What’s more the iPhone can screen television shows and films, take photographs with two megapixel camera, browse the internet and send emails and text messages. Hang on an apple picking minuteâ€¦my phone already has these features! (then again I never use them) So what’s all the fuss about? What Apple have done is bring all these features together in a sleek, sexy, stylish device and made them EASY to use. Basically the nice guys at Apple have made it with you and me in mind.
Imagine, strolling into your local Starbucksâ€¦ahem coffee shopâ€¦ and accessing your favourite fashion blogs (via Wi Fi), doing a little spot of online shopping or sending a friend a picture of the cute guy sitting opposite you sipping a late whilst listening to Mika’s, Grace Kelly all on a big beautiful touch screen!
Designers will no doubt create fabulous accessories for the iPhone in the same way all the major fashion houses recognised the iconic status (and the screen that was begging to be scratched!) of the iPod. If you loved the iPod you’ll love the iPhone which will be a fashion must have for 2007 completely revolutionising the way we communicate.
So there you have it – the iPhone has everything! Pity it doesn’t have a wine opener though….
