In searching for a fashionably-pressing cover for its sleek Nexus 7 tablet, Google enlisted the pattern wizards over at French label KENZO as their “natural choice,” said a spokeswoman at the tech giant. At a press conference in Paris this past Monday where the collaboration was unveiled, spokeswoman Anne-Gabrielle Dauba-Pantanacce went on to say, “Kenzo has heavily invested in a digitalized framework to democratize fashion and make it accessible” – a strive for greatness that parallels the Silicon Valley company’s ethos. Constructed from a sturdy PVC material, the KENZO clutch utilizes a print that is found in the contemporary label’s current fall collection as it draws its own inspiration from the facades of ancient Asian temples. Two days after KENZO plans to broadcast its spring line live on Google+ and YouTube, the limited-to-50 custom clutch will retail for €85 EUR (approximately $115 USD) at KENZO’s web store on October 1.
