British designer creates wireless charging trousers using Nokia technology

Designer Adrien Sauvage, who founded of House A. Sauvage, has worked with Nokia to create trousers that incorporate a wireless charging pocket for smartphones.

His new ‘Modern Man’ collection uses technology from the Nokia DC-50 wireless charging plate to recharge any compatible device that’s placed in the trouser pocket.

The trousers are expected to be sold via Amazon with an anticipated price tag of over £200.

The Nokia Conversations blog quotes Adam Johnson of Microsoft Mobile UK and Ireland saying “We have a proud history of working within fashion, having previously collaborated with Bruce Weber and David Bailey, as well as recent partnerships at New York and London Fashion Week. Continuing this theme, we are excited to work alongside a talented designer such as A. Sauvage. As well as having the vision to co-create these amazing wireless charging trousers, his style complements the cutting-edge design of the new Lumia 930 smartphone perfectly.”

Nokia’s DC-50 wireless charging plate is compatible with the Qi standard.
