Fashion and technology reunite on the runway at Tam’s New York Fashion Week show
HP and world-renowned designer Vivienne Tam today announced plans to extend their widely celebrated partnership with the next must-have accessory for fashionistas worldwide.
Vivienne Tam and HP debuted the next digital clutch on the catwalk of Tam’s fashion show during New York’s Fashion Week at Bryant Park.
The new look in digital clutch chic marries two cultures — fashion and technology — to reflect a transformative spirit and sophisticated lifestyle. It fuses high fashion, small form factor and innovative function to take the personal computer from a necessity to a lifestyle statement for modern-day women on the go.
“I’m excited to partner with HP again on a new design that truly embodies my inspiration for the new spring collection,” said Tam. “When women around the globe carry HP’s digital clutch and wear my clothes, I want them to feel beautiful and confident.”
The notebook design will reflect Tam’s spring 2010 collection, inspired by the classic Chinese love story, “Butterfly Lovers,” a beautiful tale of freedom, romance and inspiration.
“With her spring collection, Tam debuts HP’s next tech must-have,” said Satjiv S. Chahil, senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing, Personal Systems Group, HP. “Products as beautiful as those Vivienne makes deserve to be presented in an inspiring, unique retail experience, so we’ve extended our partnership to showcase her line in Vivienne’s Soho boutique.”
The HP Vivienne Tam digital clutch is expected to be available in spring 2010.
