Travel Gadget meets fashion – Marrying form and function?
Be it a beautiful bag, a luxurious watch or a classy belt – to complete your outfit, you need the perfect accessory. In the past, however, fashion designers neglected the very properties that make their creations an indispensable part of the day-to-day life of a modern man. Since time immemorial, designer pieces had been relegated to the role of mere fashion statements. Rarely have designer pieces been more than just a fashion statement – practical designs and comfortable fabrics nowhere to be seen.
On the other hand, gadgets have long since featured exiting, intricate designs, purpose-made to make life easier and more fun – and nothing but. Prioritizing superior functionality has often resulted in bulky, ugly or overly convoluted products – often, following the motto “form follows function” – aesthetic concerns are deprioritized or even outright ignored.
So, is that it? Choose between a beautiful, stylish design on the one hand or functionality on the other – and between the Scylla of impracticality and the Charybdis of bad design?
Beyond the dilemma: Uniting convenience and High Fashion
Even though gadgets are most often prized for their functionality, they’ve slowly but surely been making their way into the wardrobes of stylish men. How come? They’re not committing fashion faux pas en masse, quite the opposite! Utility wear has become a phenomenon, to be found in fashion boutiques worldwide and on runways from New York to Paris. Functionality is in. Look no further than Louis Vuitton, Prada or Gucci: All the big names of the fashion world have collections and designs containing smart fabrics and cool features.
The modern man shouldn’t have to compromise – that’s the realization the fashion world has come to. Appearance can simply not come at the cost of the superior comfort and usability, certainly not in his accessories. He is, however, equally unwilling to give up on exquisite materials, fine workmanship or elegant design.
He therefore wants an accessory that speaks to his aesthetic tastes, which belies the true functionality of the gadget hidden beneath. Thus, he can display his fashion sense without foregoing useful features.
All that’s required to achieve this symbiosis of vogue and practicality is flawless workmanship and a design that speaks more to its fashionable aesthetic than to its day-to-day usefulness.
