A Sun-Savvy Bracelet You’ll Actually Want to Wear; Narciso Rodriguez May Venture Into Makeup; and More-------
Aside from the announcement that Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have teamed up with Intel to design a smart bracelet, Gizmag.com reports on another piece of innovative arm candy that made its debut at the Consumer Electronics Association show in Las Vegas. Netatmo’s June bracelet, designed by Camille Toupet (who has collaborated with the likes of Louis Vuitton and Harry Winston), tracks your UV exposure. The gem—available in platinum, gold, and gunmetal—contains sensors that transmit data wirelessly to your smartphone, sending its wearer notifications on when to apply sunblock, put on a hat, and slip on sunglasses.
Narciso Rodriguez and Beauté Prestige International inked a deal regarding the brand’s “fragrance and cosmetic activities.” Seeing as the designer doesn’t have a makeup line just yet, perhaps this is a sign of things to come. [WWD]
It’s not just fake bags and Rolex watches people are pushing on both the streets and online—counterfeit beauty products are equally big business. MAC and Chanel are two of the many brands being consistently knocked off, and some of these imposter eyeshadows boast dangerous levels of lead and bacteria. Consider the few extra dollars you spend on the real deal a bargain in comparison to the bill you’ll rack up at the dermatologist’s office. [Yahoo! Shine]
