Fashion powerhouse Christian Dior will soon be launching Diorphone.
The clamshell mobile, which is targeted exclusively to women, was created by Dior from scratch. and is their first technological product.
They have also created a miniature version of the phone which can be clipped to a purse or worn as a pendant, so you won’t need to rummage through your handbag to answer a call.
Sidney Toledano, Christian Dior’s chief executive officer, said that the Diorphone is a luxury approach to mobiles as it will retail for around 3,500 euros (about $5,100). It will be in limited distribution at Dior boutiques and 300 select watch and jewelry specialty retailers worldwide.
If the regular Diorphone isn’t enough for you, a deluxe model studded with 640 diamonds, which comes with an alligator sheath, will go for up to 18,000 euros (about $27,000).
The phones, which will be unveiled this week in Dior’s flagship Paris boutique on Avenue Montaigne, also boast a mirrored high-definition display screen than can double as a compact and scratchproof sapphire crystal casing. C’est magnifique!
