The most exclusive tech brand on the market, Apple, has just made a major collaboration with one of the most exclusive fashion brands, the French design house Hermès for an updated version of the Apple Watch.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, in an Apple event held on September 8TH, the brand unveiled a special edition collection of watches with Hermès. The collection, which launches in October of 2015, melds the sleek technology of the Apple watch with the chic luxury of the Hermes leather bands. Hermes is known for its exclusivity with the year’s long waiting list of their infamous “Birkin” bag, which makes the perfect coupling for Apple, who sells out each new upgraded phone and tablet as they come out.
The following is the statement Apple has released about the collaboration on their website:
Uncompromising craftsmanship. Pioneering innovation. Groundbreaking functionality. Apple Watch Hermès is the culmination of a partnership based on parallel thinking, singular vision, and mutual regard. It is a unique timepiece designed with both utility and beauty in mind. With leather straps handmade by Hermès artisans in France and an Hermès watch face reinterpreted by Apple designers in California, Apple Watch Hermès is a product of elegant, artful simplicity — the ultimate tool for modern life.
Never to disappoint with an exclusive, and expensive price point, the limited edition watches range from $1100.00-$1500.00 USD. In a range of different colors from classic tan and black to a beautiful cerulean blue, the leather bands are a perfect luxury extension to the already opulent watch. Pictured below are the different options available which come in 38mm and 42mm cases.
This collaboration is the ultimate luxury tech item for anyone who loves to combine their love of fashion with their taste for Techno-innovation. For more information, visit Apple.com.
