Although the winter season will end soon, we want to introduce to you another iPod Fashion product for the cold days.
The company that came to our attention is: DOPE&DRAKKAR which was established in Tokyo, Japan by Eichiro Sakata in 1994. â€œDopeâ€ is a drug and â€œDrakkarâ€ is an addict. Eichiro wanted to make clothes that were ‘addictive as drugs’.
This companyâ€™s philosophy made it a â€˜mustâ€™ to look for innovative additions to their clothing line and to â€˜proofâ€™ the point, they launched last January the iDope iPod collection.
The iDope works with all iPod models except with Gen 1+2 and all iPod Shuffle.
It has the â€™standardâ€™ build-in iPod control from Eleksen but the iDope is different: rather than be woven into the material as play and pause buttons iDope has a set of simple colored buttons in the front center line of the Jacket.
In this, way the technology is completely â€˜hiddenâ€™ and there is no â€˜fearâ€™ of looking geeky.
The â€™smart fabricâ€™ from ElekTex works by knowing where it is being touched and is responding to the pressure. The sensor is of course machine washable and able to be dry-cleaned.
Very smart, very clever and a very good design from DOPE&DRAKKAR.
The iDope range consists of Jackets in Champagne, Wine, Olive and Black and goes for US$ 730.-
There is also a Vest style available in Champagne, Black, Red and Turquoise which goes for US$ 570.-
