Kaleidoscope App Lets You Shop Streetstyle Photos
Feb 15, 2012 - by Lester Brathwaite
Oh, the future. It seems like only yesterday that Al Gore invented the internet and cellphones were the size of universal remotes. But look how far we've come! The latest technological advance proves what streetstyle pioneer Bill Cunningham says -- "The best fashion show is always on the streets." -- allowing you to shop the looks of your favorite streetstlye photos from the comfort of your smartphone. Introducing Kaleidoscope.
Through a collaboration with Modelinia, Kaleidcoscope launches today on Android with versions for the iPhone and iPad expected soon. With the app, users can see about 10 results from different stores for each clickable item. Sometimes its the exact look. Its similar to the idea of the look for less that people do in fashion but its not just about a cheaper thing, explained Sarah Kunst, director of business development for Kaleidoscope. It can be a more expensive or a similar version.
What do you think, kids? Does this sound like something you'd be interested in? And does anyone else feel Sarah Kunst has a particularly unfortunate last name? [WWD]
