Mobile Couture

    Christian Dior entered the cell phone market not to lend the brand’s name to a gadget, but to bring a couture approach to an everyday device. The Diorphone is sold with a miniature version of same phone that can be clipped to a woman’s purse or worn on a pendant, making digging through a handbag to find a phone a thing of the past. A deluxe edition of the phone?studded with 640 diamonds and sold with an accompanying alligator sheath?is $27,000; the standard version is $5,100. The phones, created by the same team that designed the Christal watch with John Galliano, debuted in Dior boutiques worldwide in June. (www.dior.com)
