Prada Is Making A Cellphone

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.

They've had one available for over a year now, Mr. Smarty Pants.

Oh yeah? Where? Bring me the coupon and I'll give you a $1 off, Anonymous Face.

That shit has NOT been available for over a year now - not in the states at least. I realize it had been kicking around for awhile in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Hong Kong and yadda yadda yadda but
the phone was a non starter for the US market since its was limited to tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 with EDGE data. Whateverthefuck that means.

So there.

What ajoke that a dude like you who never seemed to give two shytes about fashion and brand names is all of a sudden chiming in on the likes of Prada and Lagerfeld.
Aren't you the same guy that basically wore band t-shirts w some no-name jeans all his life n didn't know his Versace from Valentino? Def. when I would see you around school and after that around the ridge you were.
Don't get me started on the banker talk. thats pretty funnny too. Did you get your license cause I heard you just do secretarial paperwork @ Bear. No wonder why you work at a place called B.S. LOL
I just recently found out this site belonged to you through a mutual friend. I guess a blog can help you become whoever you wanna be these days. But to anybody that knows you it just comes off as totaly fake.
