The marriage of technology and fashion has always been contentious, but as of late, companies have found a subtle, but genius way to apply smart devices within their garments. With the help of the global tech giant, Google, Levis’ latest project has enamored the space, giving wearers access to all of their smartphone’s important information at the swipe of a finger.
The second iteration of Levi’s and Google’s technical Jacquard is being offered in two different styles: a sherpa-lined variant, and a traditional denim trucker. While these iconic silhouettes stay true to Levis’ esteemed design, they’ve been outfitted with a Google-sourced smart sensor that slides into the cuff, offering quick, one-touch access to a variety of your favorite smartphone applications. At the swipe of a finger, you’ll be able to listen to local weather reports, music, navigation, and incoming texts/voicemails, as well as take calls, order takeout, or snap selfies from afar. The advanced Jacquard line is available now via Levis’ website for $198+ and has been built to work seamlessly alongside modern iOS and Android platforms.
