What the Tech World Doesn't Understand About Fashion

The tech world is infatuated with fashion. This is because fashion has something tech seriously wants: the ability to create and sustain demand for products that are—let’s face it—kind of useless.

IDG Connect – How is Wearable Tech Progressing?

IDG Connect – How is Wearable Tech Progressing? | not just tech & not just fashion & not just the newest & not just your taste | Scoop.it
sweetysmart's insight:

...The analysts at Beecham Research forecast that the wearable tech market is currently on course to be worth $3 billion by 2018. However, the firm believes that if the market can take a true ‘multidisciplinary’ approach, it could be worth more than three times that, at $9.3 billion. And the main answer? Collaborations with fashion.

In fact, its latest report is co-authored between fashion tech analyst, Claire Duke-Wooley and principal analyst, Saverio Romeo and takes the view that “tech alone” will not drive the success of these devices. 

“We don’t like buying things that people tell us we need,” says Duke-Wooley. We buy things because we like the design of them. This is innate within consumers and something that the fashion industry understands really well. ...

A Wearable Women Want to Wear? VP of New Device Group at Intel shares the design strategy

A Wearable Women Want to Wear? VP of New Device Group at Intel shares the design strategy | not just tech & not just fashion & not just the newest & not just your taste | Scoop.it
sweetysmart's insight:

...usually the process of developing a wearable device in-house takes 18 months to two years, so the strict holiday shopping deadline required extra manpower and R&D.

The team was also charting new territory: contemporary high-fashion.“Most wearables focused on sports, fitness and techies,” Ildeniz says. “We wanted to expand and take wearables beyond these categories and bring it to the everyday woman.”...

Intel’s devices team acknowledged that it would need the insights of fashion industry experts....

...

MICA’s features reveals how even a behemoth like Intel (founded in 1968 with a market cap of $164.5 billion) can gain fresh perspective through partnerships from a range of fields. Intel's team had to let Opening Ceremony (a retail brand founded in 2002) take the lead for the sake of style....

sweetysmart's insight:

Sources for 9to5Macclaim that Apple made key accessory producers sign agreements preventing them from getting design details from anyone besides Apple itself. If the firms give in to the temptation and ship leak-based products, Apple warns of "penalties" that could include refusing to stock the offending goods at its stores.

New Google Glass chief Ivy Ross not your typical techie

New Google Glass chief Ivy Ross not your typical techie | not just tech & not just fashion & not just the newest & not just your taste | Scoop.it
In choosing Ivy Ross to head Glass, Google execs are betting that a woman with an arts background and a wealth of marketing experience can make their wearable computer an object of desire
sweetysmart's insight:

"I know they'd been talking to people more like them, more engineering-oriented," says Ross in an exclusive conversation with USA TODAY.

"But they connected the dots. (At companies such as Mattel, Coach and the Gap), I designed products, came up with marketing campaigns and solved consumer needs with innovation. And somewhere in there I also designed eyeglass frames for seven years. My whole career prepared me for this job."..

 

.."Retail isn't one of our strong suits, and someone like Ivy can, more than a technologist, really help us understand how people experience eyewear, because in the end this is just smart eyewear," says Teller. "Besides ticking all the boxes, she's a warm person who brings out the best in people. And she's got patience, which everyone will need throughout this evolution.".said former Google Glass lead..
