Zegna’s Bluetooth-Enabled Jacket Presents A Posh Take On Wearable Technology

Zegna’s Bluetooth-Enabled Jacket Presents A Posh Take On Wearable Technology

The Icon Jacket allows the wearer to control his mobile from the sleeve cuff.

Italian luxury fashion house Ermenegildo Zegna has come out with a Bluetooth-enabled sports jacket that lets the wearer control his mobile device from the sleeve cuff.

The Icon Jacket is a slim-fit, waterproof, triple-layer zip jacket that has joystick controls installed on the sleeve. The controller has a phone control menu to allow the wearer to answer or end calls. The controller also has music menu to let the wearer play and pause tunes from a mobile device.

The controller works like a typical joystick. The wearer simply toggles the flexible stick to the right, left, or upwards and downwards. It has a play or push function that works by pushing the joystick in the center.

The wearer needs to pair his mobile device with the Icon Jacket via Bluetooth to be able to use the controller, and earphones connect easily to a device through strategically-placed holes on the jacket.

The Icon Jacket comes with an operating manual that details out the phone control and music control menus.
