Google’s Latest Launch: A Fashion Line

Leonora Epstein / February 9, 2010

Not only is Google trying to take over the entire world, but they’re also attempting to invade your closets. Apparently, the Internet giant is selling some rather high-fashion goods in its Google Store. This small trio of items represents the winners of the Vogue/CDFA competition in which, “Each [designer] was asked to create a one-of-a-kind item that was inspired by Google, whether it be the logo’s colors, technology, or access to information … ”

Cool idea, yet the products are pretty pricey and don’t offer enough innovation in aesthetics for us to drop the $85 on a t-shirt, $300 for a knit scarf, or $200 for a magnifying glass necklace. However, the proceeds do go back to the CFDA to support emerging designers. What do you think? [Huffington Post]
