Designed with a built-in 136-degree wide-angle lens and an 8GB storage limit, British Designer Lulu Guiness’ “Archive Eyes” camera handbag is the latest must-have for Fashionistas looking to experiment with wearable technology. Guinness, who recently partnered up with hands-free image capture device Autographer for her Fall/Winter 2014 collection, enables the modern fashion enthusiast to capture up to 2,000 images on-the-go.

The camera comes equipped with an ultra small GPS unit, five smart sensors and a fixed focus lens powered by algorithms which render the camera sensitive to light, motion, color and temperature, allowing it to capture moments at the right time. The results are beautiful, stop-frame photographs, which provide a unique perspective and the perfect opportunity to create original GIFs that are compatible with both iOS and Android platforms. The detachable Autographer can last up to a full day without recharge and pairs with your phone via Bluetooth, allowing you to preview, browse and share all of the images captured throughout the day.


As smart clothing continues to grow into a household concept, designers like Guinness are creating fun and practical ways bring their seemingly traditional designs into the digital sphere. On her blog, Guinness was first shown experimenting with her Autographer (or “Lulu cam”) during London Fashion Week, where she is seen snapping “accidental selfies” and live footage of her Q&A; which inspired her to push her designs further.

“I have been following and growing interest in wearable technology within the fashion industry,” states Guinness in a recent interview with The Telegraph, “so [I] am excited to partner with Autographer and take our first steps to merge the two with a touch of style and humour.”

And Guinness is no stranger to experimenting for arts sake. Previously, she has collaborated with noteworthy creatives like “Crime Artist” Joseph Steele and Disney.

Priced at £395, the limited edition Archive Eyes camera bag will be available on Lulu’s site and stores across the globe. It’s another fun leap for fashion accessories towards innovation and functionality, starting July 16.
