It's not uncommon for fashion houses to lend their brand name clout to cell phones (the LG Prada, anyone?), and Dolce & Gabbana has done it again with the just announced Sony Ericsson Jalou. This stunner has a nice rose hue with real 24-carat-gold plating, so you don't want to be leaving this around unattended. The Dolce & Gabbana version of the phone will of course come with special packaging and accessories, like three satin bags and a special D&G headset with gold accents.
The Dolce & Gabbana version is simply a limited edition of the … Read more
BOSTON--Is a fashion and tech industry partnership the equivalent of mixing plaids with stripes, or is this a case of black and white being the perfect match?

Best of all, I can just swap out the SIM card from my current Razr and slap it into this D&G Razr and instantly become blinged out. Now if I could just get a gold-plated MP3 player...
When Motorola launched the Razr V3i Dolce & Gabbana, the most ridiculous thing about it wasn't its brash gold skin but rather its sky-high $400 price tag. After all, it was just a regular old Razr. The only difference was it came with a label and a Dolce & Gabbana cell phone dangle.
