Sonia Rykiel Teaming Up With H&M

Sonia Rykiel to be the next H&M guest designerSonia Rykiel is the latest guest designer for H&M.

The collaboration, which debuts in stores worldwide on December 5th, represents the high street chain’s first designer foray into lingerie and accessories, with the garments also being sold in major Sonia Rykiel boutiques around the world.

In addition, the designer will collaborate on a second collection for Spring/Summer ‘10, featuring knitwear for women and girls. The line will launch in February next year.

H&M have praised the “joyful chic” of their newest collaborator. The store’s creative advisor Margarets van den Bosch said, “Sonia Rykiel is a true fashion icon who invented a signature style around femininity, Parisian chic and modernity—as well as functional, comfortable, wearable clothes. She has an attitude that inspires admiration among women of all ages around the world. We loved the joyful chic of Sonia Rykiel’s 40th anniversary runway show—and in that spirit this collection is all about reveling in great lingerie for its own sake. This is a totally modern, new kind of lingerie look, and when we started to work together with Rykiel on it, we just couldn’t stop. It’s a wonderful highlight for our main collection.”

Power Bridge turns the power strip upside down

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Household, Misc. Tech,

Power Bridge

The Power Bridge is a concept device that solves the problem that most anyone with a computer or home entertainment system has run into: power strips, with their mess of cords, are unsightly.  The simple idea, designed by Hyukjae Chang, takes the outlets and flips them upside down. The result? Something that is functional, and appears to even be a bit safer. Way to go, Mr. Chang, for this long-needed idea of improving the power strip aesthetic.  We hope it catches on and sees the light of day.

Nokla E81: Phone or Compact? You decide.

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Accessories, Cell Phones, Design, Rumors,

Nokia E81I like it when mobile phone designers start thinking outside of the box, .  It would appear that some knockoff designer from Nokla is trying for female appeal with their E81 concept, a phone that swivels like a compact.  This creates a phone with less volume, for certain, and the back even has a mirror, perfect for those quick make-up checks and applications.

Myvu Crystal EV video glasses

Myvu Crystal EVFor those who like the video googles, then you might want to check out Myvu’s video eyewear with the Crystal EV.  This uses Myvu’s Solid Optix technology, and is capable of “projecting 64 inch screen size”.  I have personally tried out an earlier version of the myvu, and I found it not to be as big of a screen as they boasted.  If you want video goggles with a fully immersible screen, then you should try the Vuzix.  But hey, maybe Myvu has improved on their earlier designs. 


DigiDudes bring attitude to your tripod

Digidudes

You could spend money on the new Sony Partyshot to take lots of pictures at any given time, but you will need to get one of Sony’s new cameras.  However, if you just want the camera in one place, and would like to have more fun with the traditional tripod, then we highly recommend the DigiDudes.  As you can see, these guys have a removeable head that allows your camera to be placed securely on its body with the pull-out legs.  They retail for $19.99, and have individual personalities like Pinky Scorsese, iChomp, Snot Buster (why not?) G-bling-Money-Son, and BoltBot.
