Geek Chic: The most stylish tech and fashion collaborations ever

Wearables could learn a thing or two from these mashups

Who says geeks are out of style?

Beautiful things can happen when the worlds of tech and high fashion collide. To prove our point, here are the top three fashion and tech collaborations of our time. 

3. LG x Prada

Slathered in Prada’s trademark textured pattern from its Saffiano leather, the LG Prada Phone 3.0 is an elegant 4.3 inches of glass and metal. The Prada branded earphones are a nice touch for those who like to keep their music classy.

While version 3.0 isn't much to crow about with its middling specs, the first LG Prada phone broke new ground as the first mobile phone to pack a capacitive touchscreen.

American designer Alexander Wang teamed up with the eargear maker to slap his brand of cool onto the Beats Studio headphones. The matte black headphones glimmer with gold accents, and come with adaptive noise cancelling as well as a 20-hour rechargeable battery. Music has never looked as good, nor has a fashion trend lasted as long. 

He also glossed up the Pill and urBeats earbuds with his golden designer touch. 

1. Leica x Hermès

We saved the best for last. Crafted to celebrate the friendship of Jean-Louis Dumas (former president of Hermès who was never seen without his Leica) and the German camera company, the Hermès Leica M9-P is an imaging force to reckon with wrapped in supple calfskin leather. Watch how it’s lovingly crafted, and weep for you'll probably never be able to afford its US$25,000 (RM81,455) price tag.
