Over the past few years, there have been many fashion-centric virtual reality experiences created, but for the most part, virtual reality headpieces themselves have remained strictly utilitarian in terms of looks. To remedy this, Korean studio 'PDF haus' created conceptual designs for VR/AR glasses from Givenchy.
The conceptual headset design resembles a stylish pair of sunglasses, complete with round, colorfully tinted lenses and a form that would provide a comfortable fit for extended wear. Like the lens on a camera, the lenses on these VR glasses have the potential to be adjusted with built-in focus rings.
There are many high-fashion brands that have embraced both augmented and virtual technologies for in-store, runway and product experiences, but it remains to be seen which design house will be the first to produce a functional and fashion-forward VR headset.
