    Default Christian Dior Cell Phone



    What type of cell phone do you Bagista’s carry? In the past couple of years, high-end designers have followed the fad of releasing cellular phones made exclusively to trademark their brand. Some infamous couture designers who have followed this trend include, Dolce & Gabanna, Prada, Gucci, Chanel, and now, French designer Christian Dior who has recently released its own piece of couture technology.

    This sleek phones most obvious trait is Christian Dior’s Cannage design featured throughout the entire cellphones’ exterior. More features found on the Dior phone includes a Mini Camera, touch screen display and an extender for your phone that is meant to clip onto a woman’s handbag, or better yet, a woman’s Christian Dior handbag. A set retail price hasn’t been released for the Dior phone, but a limited edition diamond encrusted “My Dior” phone’s will be available for retail price tag of $5,000!!!

    So what do you Bagista’s think about Dior’s cellular phone? Do you find this phone to be amazing, rare and a great investment (that’s if you have the 5K to drop on a cellphone) or do you find this product to be incredibly useless, since, it’s really just a cellphone?

    Now, I can’t direct you to when and where the Dior’s cellphone will be out in the market. But you can pick up a hot Dior purse, here: eLUXURY

    Here's the WWD article on the super cute new phone

    The limited edition version with 640 diamonds + alligator sounds lovely

    PARIS — Sidney Toledano, Christian Dior's chief executive officer, fielded plenty of calls in recent years from cell phone makers eager to partner with the French fashion firm on a stylish Dior-branded mobile.

    Instead, Dior opted for a couture approach, creating its first technological product from scratch, including a miniature "twin" of the phone that a woman can clip to her purse or wear on a pendant, eliminating the need to dig through a handbag to answer a call.

    "This is a luxury approach," said Toledano, unveiling the jewel-like device, which will retail from 3,500 euros, or about $5,100 at current exchange, in Dior boutiques starting next month. A deluxe model studded with 640 diamonds, which comes with an alligator sheath, runs up to 18,000 euros, or $27,000.

    Toledano said Dior expects to sell between 30,000 and 60,000 units over the next year, limiting distribution to its 225 Dior boutiques and 300 select watch and jewelry specialty retailers worldwide. In an interview, he said he expects cell phones — for legions, a cheap, functional device — to move upscale, just like watches and handbags, for which well-heeled women now think nothing of shelling out thousands.

    The French fashion house partnered with Paris-based firm ModeLabs, a custom design specialist, to create the clamshell-style Diorphone, which is targeted squarely at women. For example, the miniature companion phone — which boasts impressive sound quality despite its matchbook size — has a mirrored display screen than can double as a compact.

    The main phone is loaded with subtle branding, from the "cannage" pattern etched into its scratchproof sapphire crystal casing to the icons on the high-definition display screen: a Lady Dior handbag for tools; an oval-shaped mirror for images. All the software, built-in videos and imagery are exclusive to Dior.

    The same in-house team that created Dior's Christal watch with couturier John Galliano was charged with the phone's design. It will be unveiled tonight at Dior's flagship on Avenue Montaigne here.

    Citing positive feedback for the product in focus groups, Toledano said he anticipates strong demand worldwide, particularly in emerging markets where a young customer base and strong economic growth are fueling a boom in luxury products. This includes Russia, the Middle East, China and Hong Kong, along with tourist destinations such as Paris and Monte Carlo, he noted. Because of technological barriers, Diorphones that work in South Korea and Japan will be launched in a second phase.
    Toledano said he expects the mini My Dior phone, which functions like a Bluetooth, will be a key attraction. Dior has an exclusive on the feature, conceived by ModeLabs, for more than a year. "It's a real breakthrough," he said.

    Dior plans to sell the phones within its watch departments, starting in France on June 16, and has developed point-of-sale fixtures and display units for specialty retailers. An advertising campaign is being readied for the holiday selling period, and Dior is plotting a series of events and celebrity tie-ins to promote the phone.

    A battalion of fashion firms lately has unveiled cell phone ventures, including Giorgio Armani, Levi's, Ted Baker and Tag Heuer, following Prada and Dolce & Gabbana, each of which have sold around 500,000 units of their signature cells.

    Default Hello

    Yeah!!! Nice comments. I am very happy with you. The cell phone offers all the regular features - a touch screen, a camera, ringtones - but with a new gimmick: a miniature phone barely bigger than a USB key. Dior's new phone is priced higher than rival fashion phones, closer to the price range of premium line Vertu.

    The price is absolutely ridiculous. I don't think they're pretty either. if it has the same functions of a regular ol cellphone, then I'm sticking with the old boring ones. These phones better be dipped in gold and the keypad be made from diamonds. Insane!!
    LUSTING: TREESJE Mini Magnolia or Asher (w/braided handle), Black/Gunmetal Jovi or Crimson
    ARRIVING SOON: Rebecca Minkoff the Affair & Kiss Clutch in Fine Wine (on a major ban till 2011)

    I agree. If anyone is going to pay that price for a phone, it better be spectacular. Otherwise, why would we bother? I think the only brand name that pulls any weight in the phone world is Apple. LOL Anything with a lower case 'i' in front of it can sell for any amount it wants and people will buy it. LOL

    I think the designers should stay out of the phone game and settle for phone accessories instead. I mean, how many of us would love to jazz up our phones with a bit of glitz and glamour from Dior or Chanel or LV or Prada etc...? I know I would! :D Better that then spending thousands on a phone that may turn out to be worse than a $50 phone with no camera.
    **Wish List ** Fendi - Peekaboo, B-Bag ~~ Hermes - Birkin 35cm in ostrich leather
    Valentino - Petale Dome Bag, Bondage Bag ~~ Prada - Tessuto & Ricamo Tote, Spazzolato tote.
    **And the money to buy them with**
