On Monday September 22 in Paris, I will host a session with three of the most innovative companies in the wearable world, and we will try to answer the one billion dollar question: Is the Technology Industry ready to embrace the Fashion World?
The event is part of the Fashion & Tech Week hosted by Numa Sept 22-28.
For this conversation I have selected companies that are paying a lot of attention to the design quality of their wearable devices, to make them as fashionable and smart as they can be.
The door will open at Numa, 39 rue du Caire in Paris at 6.30 pm on Sept 22 and we will welcome the following participants on stage – information to register here, we just have opened more seats soon and you can tweet me @elianefiolet if you are interested:
Amy Puliafito, Director of Communications, Misfit Wearable ;
Raphaelle Raymond, VP Marketing Netatmo
Pierre Garner, Designer Co-founder & Partner, Elium Studio
Frederic Lintz, Designer Co-founder & Partner, Elium Studio
Each participant will present his/her company or product or both for 10 minutes in his/her preferred language and then we will start the panel session to answer the question. A networking cocktail will follow.
Netatmo recently launched June, a connected jewelry designed by Camille Toupet who regularly works for the top jewelry brands. Unlike most wearable devices, June is targeted to the female audience and monitors daily UV exposure. The Misfit Shine is till my favorite activity tracker because it is the most elegant one and the most comfortable one to wear for a long period of time. Additionally its very long battery life is a key differentiator. Elium Studio is a very innovative design firm that has designed all Withings products, including the Withings Activité smartwatch, which features an elegant and traditional look with its real watch hands.
