Charge and Keep Your Phone Close with Joe’s #HELLO Jean
Every day I see perfect examples that prove to me that the possibilities in the denim world are endless…the blue jean is definitely not your average blue jean anymore! Joe’s is definitely one of the innovative ones on the top of the game, with several past and present capsule collections under your belt. One interesting thing I’ve noticed is the slow but gradual merging of tech and apparel. Google and Levi’s have been working together to create wearable tech, with the goal being to produce clothing that can relay, transmit, display or interact with data from any device that might be close by, as early as 2016. Joe’s has recently taken their own take on this emerging trend—not so much with wearable tech (well maybe), but more like jeans that works with your mobile devices, making it super easy and convenient to truly be connected at the hip with our mobile devices (as most of us are nowadays, in a figurative sense).
Meet the Joe’s #HELLO jean, which was just released on August 4th. The #HELLO jean is an “innovative new style for Fall 2015 that synthesizes fashion with technology – #HELLO. The #HELLO jean features new patent pending pockets for your iPhone® and a battery pack connected to a detachable USB cord that plugs directly into your phone. The battery pack is compatible with the iPhone® 5, 5S, and 6.”
The #HELLO jean is a skinny jean which was released in four washes: Regan (black), Aria (grey), Kalia (a washed indigo with ripped knees) and Cecily (indigo). Battery packs are sold separately for $49, and are specifically designed for the iPhone so far. I’m an Android user…and I know much of the market is, so hopefully there will be battery packs for other kinds of mobile devices if this collection really takes off! I do think it’s pretty smart that the battery pack was designed with a protection system to avoid over charging to keep your battery life in top condition. See the images and video below for more details!
I think this is pretty awesome and new in the denim world. I’ve toyed with battery packs here and there and most stink or crap out on me way too soon…I personally get paranoid with my cellphone being visible outside my purse but considering how deep these pockets are, I’d definitely consider a pair! Well, maybe if this collection is expanded to Android users, as I mentioned…I’m not much of an iPhone fan. But as someone who works in the tech field, I understand you gotta start somewhere, and work up from there! 🙂
