As everyone is rejoicing over (and queuing up for) the launch of the new iPhone 11, the tech-savvy fashion crowd also has their eyes on a brand new product that just hit the market. Something, in fact, that goes hand-in-hand with the latest Apple smartphone.
Weaving together innovative technology and luxury fashion accessories, the house of Saint Laurent has collaborated with Jacquard by Google to create a smart backpack that allows you to control music, drop location pins, take pictures and navigate on the go with a mere gesture.
Dubbed the Cit-e, this sleek, all-black Saint Laurent backpack features intelligent yarns that’ve been weaved into the fabric to identify different control gestures, along with a discreet Jacquard tag embedded within the bag that connects with the interactive panel to your phone.
All functionalities are optimised for both iOS and Android users, and exclusively available at Saint Laurent’s Rive Droite boutiques — the brand’s new curated creative retail spaces — in Paris and Los Angeles, as well as online.
