Kate Spade's New Collection Will Make Sure Your iPhone Is Always Charged


The only downfall for a woman on the go is a phone battery in the red.

Kate Spade, the beloved purveyor of brightly-colored leather bags, aims to remedy that with a tech-friendly addition to its brand.

The Wall Street Journal reports September will see the release of Kate Spade's collaboration with Everpurse, a startup bag brand that enables the customer to charge his or her iPhone on a small battery inside the bag.

The line, which will be available in Nordstrom stores as well as Kate Spade stores, Kate Spade online and Everpurse.com, will reportedly cost you anywhere from $198 to $698.

While Kate Spade isn't the only luxury brand dipping its purse straps into the wearable tech industry, it's one of the first well-known labels to do so affordably.

A price tag of hundreds of dollars isn't cheap, but for a quality leather bag, it's certainly a reasonable investment.

During the 10-month collaboration process, Everpurse and Kate Spade worked to make bags that are both functional and lovely to look at.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the fully-charged battery inside each purse will last the average iPhone user up to two days of regular use.

The only thing that's missing is an Android battery connector.
