NYFW debut: Accessories that double as tech

If James Bond were a woman, we imagine Q would have designed her jewellery just like the Rebecca Minkoff pieces showcasing tonight at New York Fashion Week.

The wearable tech is designed to give women access to their digital life in the most discreet way possible, so instead of having to constantly keep one on their smartphone, they can be alerted to important messages by a sleek-looking notification bracelet.

For low battery emergencies there's a black leather cuff with the brand’s signature flat gold studs that can be slipped off and flattened out, to use as an on-the-go phone charger.

Minkoff, who collaborated with Case-Mate to create the line, said: “As a woman, I understand the stigma that goes along with having my phone out at a dinner or meeting, but the fact is that I still need to be tapped in to a few people no matter what. I designed the notification bracelet with the working professional woman in mind."

The notification bracelet costs $120 (£74), while the charger cuff is $60 (£37) and both will launch at her SS15 runway show tonight. Watch the Rebecca Minkoff show live at 8pm GMT here.
