Fashion: Jewelry for USB drives by Isaac Appiah
People have been coming up with ways to make USB drives more attractive and potentially wearable for quite some time. But, from what you can gather in a quick Google image search, many of these USB-as-fashion items seem to overuse the rhinestones and are a bit too cutesy.
Los Angeles-based designer Isaac Appiah has created a line of USB accessories that are sleek and non-intrusive. Designed for his line Vilnvixn, these bracelets and necklaces use simple shapes and grayscale colors to create utilitarian jewelry that is adaptable to most any outfit.
A personal favorite is the necklace, a well-structured piece that is reminiscent of the metal and geometric jewelry you see trending these days. From the picture, you could easily mistake the shapes for well-cut stone polygons, but alas, the top portion slides out to reveal a USB drive.
