In a recent Vogue interview, fashion designer Tom Ford commented on Apple Watch and its role in the fashion world. Ford says he views “Apple products as fashion accessories,” especially the Apple Watch. While designers often create iPhone cases, the Apple Watch provides a unique opportunity for designers to produce technological accessories that are meant to be worn. Ford currently sells two versions of a Pocket Watch Chain that allows users to attach an Apple Watch in the slot where bands usually attach. The chain is available in gold and silver and retails for $1,490.
Tom Ford’s Pocket Watch Chain represents how technology and design can combine to create beautiful products with powerful digital features. As more people buy Apple Watch, the device will start to look increasingly pedestrian, so innovative designers like Tom Ford can bring their signature styling to the device.
