Fairytales of Technology
We moms love our laptops. But one that has style and is evocative of something out of a fairytale is just too good to be true!
Dell has teamed up with D.L. & Co: Purveyors of Curious Goods to create limited edition Adamo laptop skins that make your computer look like something right out of your children's favorite storybooks.
Now they have brought those designs to Bergdorf Goodman to create some of the most fabulous window displays that incorporate Little’s signature look: a blend of Edwardian decadence, Asian mystery and Rock and Roll edginess. I..want...one!
In addition, Little has collaborated with costume designer Michael Schmidt for the snake and corset laptops, sculptor George Sellers, Michele Varian for pillows for the Seduce The Senses window, a one of a kind sculpture jewelry piece by Justin Guinta of subversive jewelry in the Divine Design window, Jim Thompson Thai Silk and ABC Home. *swoon* This is definitely a must-see when I head to NYC in a few weeks!
Little says “Adamo means to fall in love and after reviewing the seductive craftsmanship and attention to detail of the Adamo - I too began to ‘fall in love’. I wanted to create a provocative and subversive spin on this love story that visually bridged the gap between fashion, technology and the avant garde. There is no better place on earth to debut these dream like visions than the Fifth Avenue windows of Bergdorf Goodman, which are world renowned for their creativity in seamlessly merging art and high fashion.”
Elle Magazine will be giving one croc-corseted laptop (value $5,000) a week for three weeks. Encrusted with Swarovski crystals and hand-stitched, this is one computer that you're not gonna want to share with the kids!
