Fashion and technology continue to combine in new, exciting ways that may also change how we interact with technology on a daily basis. The latest impressive innovation is a stylish handbag that can also be used to charge up your phone. Simply named The 314, the luxurious new bags are crafted in Italy and are currently only available to pre-order before they hit the market. The technology used in the bags was designed at MIT and allows any USB device to be charged while on the go. It also lights up when you open up the bag, enabling you to see the contents within easily. Theodora Koullias is the designer behind the company Jon Lou, who are producing the new product. 

Commenting on moving into the tech world with the battery-charging bag, Theodora stated that she wanted to make women's lives easier and believes the new handbag is empowering for women to own: “We really view the handbag as a tool for empowerment, one that can facilitate and enhance the way in which women work and communicate.” She adds that fashion and technology are often out of sync and she wanted to unite them: “This is a problem with wearables today. When people complain about the fashion missing from the tech, and the tech missing from the fashion, it’s because the two sides most likely haven’t created the product in sync.” The bag wirelessly charges and even orders its own refills when needed, so the user doesn't need to plug in the bag at all, it's all easy and fuss-free.
