The unusual combination of high-end fashion and cryptoverse technology has seen Fendi, an Italian luxury fashion house, team up with hardware wallet manufacturer Ledger to showcase two tech accessories for its flagship Ledger Nano X.
Fendi’s Men’s Fall/Winter 2022 Collection was unveiled this Saturday. The models were outfitted with the gadgets, while the runway showcased the latest fashion trends.
The Baguette is the first gadget. It is a tribute to Fendi’s iconic bag and an aluminum mini-bag-shaped case for Nano X.
The second product, is a 3D capsule-shaped chain with hidden hinge drawers that can hold the hardware wallet.
The fashion house’s extravagant reputation is reflected in fantasy versions of the design, which “include exotic leather inserts and gold plating, as well as a glittering surface of cubic zirconia.”
Fendi’s Accessories for the Ledger Gear will be available to purchase on the Fashion House’s website beginning in June 2022.
However, there are who warn that carrying such a pertinent item in such an obvious place is not smart and could ‘invite’ trouble, specifically, that it could leave owners open to theft.
The collaboration represents a lucrative step into the world crypto-related accessories for the Italian fashion house.
Ledger stated that a debut collection by Silvia Venturini Fendi of tech accessories was created at the intersection of cutting-edge virtual technology, and the timeless iconography of FENDI fashion.
