I suppose it was only a matter of time. Cellphones have become mandatory appendages & status symbols so why not have a designer cellphone to carry about.
The new Prada cellphone will first launch in Japan, home to some of the most discriminating cellphone users in the world. Prada, still recovering from all that early 90's Fendi debt, is hoping the $800 cellphone will breathe life into the 95 year old design house.
The exclusive model created by the Italian luxury brand and South Korea's LG Electronics will be available in Japan starting May 23. I'm sure we'll see it here in the states very soon with all the other LVMH luxury brands not far behind.
