Merely when you believed that the fashion globe couldn’t get any more bizarre, somebody determined to toss the mobile phone market into the mix, simply to see just what kind of un-Godly combination they could possibly think of. The feedback? A skirt made from Nokia 1020 and 1520 smartphones.


However, although we’ve checked it’s not April 1st at the very least thrice, we’re not making any of this up.

Exhibited at London Style Week 2014 and the job of Nokia, stylist Fyodor Golan, and interactive style firm Kin, the skirt looks more like a ballet professional dancer’s tutu compared to a skirt you’re most likely to actually walk around town in. Having stated that, and having witnessed the UK nightlife first hand, possibly that’s not entirely exact. However we digress.

Even more than simply a collection of smartphones tacked into a skirt, the development actually showcases a computer animated screen that has the phones showing various designs based upon the movement of the person that’s wearing the skirt. We’re assuming that the accelerometer goes to work right here, though personalized software application has obviously been produced in order to present just what the developers desired. We’re sure they’re very delighted with their creation, also if to the untrained eye it appears like someone was let loose in their regional Ideal Buy with excessive time on their hands and a sewing kit at their disposal. This, we’re mentioned to, is fashion.


The skirt was revealed during Fyodor Golan’s program in London and fairly honestly, it looks like a job of art, or a geek’s desire become a reality, whatever you would like to call it. According to the official Nokia Conversations blog:

In collaboration with developers and Style Fringe victors, Fyodor Golan, Nokia has actually developed the globe’s very first interactive skirt composed of 35 Nokia Lumia 1520 mobile phones, each sporting a 20MP PureView video camera and 6-inch display.


Should it fall under the category of ‘item layout’? We make certain a specific Jony Ive is already fuelling his personal jet and on his way to explain just exactly what item design entails!



That being claimed, we’re sure Apple’s layout master wouldn’t understand the first point about the best ways to manufactured a dress either. If he did though, we’re sure it would certainly look just lovely.

And not a Nokia anywhere in sight.
