"fashion fades, only style remains the same."
- coco chanel
not to be outdone by prada and armani, designer fred de garilhe has come up a mobile telephone vision for chanel. the chocolate-bar-like device is said to be "extremely slim and compact, with a screen that appears from behind a 16-key grid that utilises optical fibre technology to display an image between two glass parts." it works by "integrating an optical fibre system that displays images between two glass parts." when active, the keys illuminate to display a typical numeric layout, with call and menu buttons aligning themselves with the display. want one? don't hold your breath - the dream has yet to be realised.
