This weekend, celebrate the launch of the Mailbox app at the TechStyle event. Alongside the UK premiere of Spatium discover a showcase of wearable technology from cutting-edge brands which bridge the gap between fashion and technology.

Each coat features luxury Loro Piana fabric and revolutionary infrared heat technology – perfect for warming you up in the winter without compromising on style. Crafted in the UK, the pieces are defined by a gorgeous cashmere/wool blend, treated with StormSystem to keep you water and wind protected. Worth over £1,400, this revolutionary design is bridging the gap between fashion and technology in the most stylish way.
