Fashion Meets Technology as Kenpo’S Jacket for iPod “Tunes In” to the Next Evolution of Pop Culture – Wearable Music
LOS ANGELES – Tech-Infused Fashion Embodies A New Lifestyle Reality That Keeps iPod Users “Buttoned-Up” And In Full-Control Of Their Personal Style and Listening Experience
In a harmonious convergence of fabric technology and fashion forward style, Kenpo, Inc., a leading manufacturer of apparel, has redefined the iPod listening experience and ushered in a new lifestyle reality with the unveiling of the Kenpo Jacket for iPod. Empowering everyday music enthusiasts to seize control of their listening experience, Kenpo’s innovative union of fashion and technology enables wearers to keep their iPod device in the jacket’s inner pocket, and still manage the pause, skip tracks and volume using the easily accessible interface located on the lower portion of the jacket’s sleeve without fumbling with zippers, gloves or pockets.
Allowing iPod-users to wear their music on their sleeve, Kenpo’s technology enabled line of jackets employs ElekTex patented “smart fabric” touch pad technology to transform the sleeve into a 5-button electronic control panel for use with the iPod and iPod mini models. The discreetly placed 100% fabric interface utilizes touch-sensitive buttons that are identical to those found on the iPod Device, meaning wearers can Play, Pause, Track Forward, Track Back, and change the Volume Levels without ever removing their iPod from the specially designed, padded interior pocket. Absent of any wires or a metal contact, the jacket is machine washable, completely self-powered and requires no batteries.
“The Kenpo Jacket for iPod is the pinnacle of form, function and personal style, in that technology and fashion, the two factors that have the greatest influence on the daily lives of the consumer, are now fully integrated to create an entirely new lifestyle genre,” said Joel Bernstein, vice president of Kenpo, Inc. “Both fashion and music have always defined and inspired attitudes and personal style, and now people have the opportunity to better control their own environment, while enhancing their everyday life by setting it to music.”
Designed to keep current with the hottest trends and styles, and appeal to the general consumer, the Kenpo’s Jacket for iPod is available in four men’s styles, has a suggested retail price of $275.00 and is available at leading department stores as well as online.
