We have a whole new appreciation for Kate Spade.
In a genius move, the company has introduced a new line of handbags that will actually charge your phone for you.
Joining forces with startup Everpurse, the collection – which debuts in September – will feature clutches, totes, and even backpacks. A fully charged Kate Spade Everpurse should last for two days for a typical iPhone user.
Everpurse made headlines in 2012, when it raised $238,000 via a Kickstarter campaign, resulting in a collection that launched in 2013, with a new line of bags debuting in 2014.
The bags are able to charge iPhones, including all models from iPhone 5 through the iPhone 6 Plus. This is thanks to a charging mat on which the phones rest, which sends energy wirelessly into a battery inside
The pieces are expected to retail between $198 to $698 and will be sold at Kate Spade New York stores, Kate Spade online, Nordstrom, and Everpurse.com.
All we have to say is that wearable tech has never looked so good.
