[twitter-follow screen_name=’techstylenews’]


Ralph Lauren’s signature luxury handbag gets a techno update.  The Ricky Bag With Light features built-in LEDs that turn on when the bag is opened.  As an added component, the purple calf interior carries a mobile phone charger.  The battery itself signals its power reserve at the push of a button and can be replenished though an accompanying USB port.  Keeping to his traditional craftsmanship values, Ralph Lauren is manufacturing the bag in Italy with the help of artisans who handmake each purse over a 12 hour period.  The Ricky Bag With Light is black leather with rose gold hardware.  The cost is set at $5,000 and can be pre-ordered through the Ralph Lauren online store.  Shipping is scheduled for February 2015 and as of 12/20/14, only 3 bags remain available.
