It sounds like something from the future: a pair of skinny jeans that will charge your smartphone, simply by
slipping the device into a sleek side pocket.
But that day is here. Joe's Jeans, a California-based fashion brand, has launched a line of jean called #Hello,
featuring a hidden pocket for a slim battery and power cord, which can connect to Apple iPhones. The new styles
"offer a sleek, stylish way to keep women charged and connected while on the go."The jeans, are priced at $189,
plus another $49 for the custom battery.
The brand isn't the first to add charging capabilities to a piece of apparel. Many companies have launched pur-
ses and wallets that charge phones. Backpacks like the Powerbag and The North Face also let people charge
their tablets or smartphones on the go, and some companies have moved beyond charging capabili- ties — equi-
pping devices with GPS, speaker hookups and more.
Even our furniture might some day be able to give our phones some juice: IKEA recently said it's creating a line
of lamps, desks and tables that will charge phones and tablets, without wires.
The future of fashion clearly includes 'smart' functionality. The consumers have come to accept this level of fun-
ctionality in clothing. Jeans capitalizing on this burge oning demand seems logical.
