Very Rarely, I Have No Comment. This is One of Those Times.

And I quote: "Tomislav Zvonaric, 33, a graphic designer from Zagreb in Croatia said: 'The whole concept for the iTie came from wearable fashion. 'I thought it would be a cool idea to have a tie that could have interchangeable patterns or colours and be used as a screen for an IOS device."

[So you put a collar around your neck, point the projector down... and it projects a pattern and color]

"The whole bottom part of the tie is a screen that displays apps like an iPhone or iPad, only it would be arranged to fit the shape of the tie.

'From there, people could make Skype calls, send texts, make phone calls, and even use the camera at the bottom and the top.

'The tie would also have an app so that people could change the pattern or colour of it, meaning men just need to have one tie that suits all occasions."

[Disclosure: I am biased toward the Randa "Style made Smart" system. Further, the concept of a "one man; one tie" system is scary... DJK]

How Randa and the Fashion Industry are Adapting to DIY

The term 'Do It Yourself' has turned into a phenomenon over the past decade and is continuing to gain momentum, especially in the fashion industry. From interactive design stations at Topshop, to custom shoes at Jimmy Choo, every level of the fashion industry is dipping their toes into the pools of DIY.

"Many industry insiders think it is just the beginning. Ask about the future of fashion, and the answer that is likely to come back (along with the importance of Instagram and the transformation of shows into entertainment) is personalization," says Vanessa Friedman from the New York Times. 

Fendi Models Walk on Water

Sunset at the Trevi fountain in Rome, where Anita Ekberg once frolicked in Fellini's "La Dolce Vita;" the location was reimagined as an ethereal, transparent runway for Fendi's 90th anniversary fashion show.
According to legend, in 19 BC, Roman soldiers, driven by thirst and desire, were led to fresh water by a beautiful girl: At that location an aqueduct and great fountain were built. Two millennia later, not much has changed. 

Apropos of fan expectations, models including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid appeared to walk on water, wearing gossamer garments evocative of the Fendi"Legends and Fairytales"  water nymph theme.
