As New York Fashion Week gets underway, designer Rebecca Minkoff has debuted a new set of fashion-focused tech accessories for Apple's iPhones and Apple Watch. The fashion brand teamed up with accessory maker Case-Mate to create the new line of products (via Mashable).

Minkoff debuted a trio of new Apple Watch bands retailing from $80 to $100. The first band is a snakeskin leather band, the second is a leather double wrap and the third is a traditional leather band with designs etched into it.

The fashion brand also debuted a set of phone-charging wallets and wristlets, which Minkoff says will provide two and half full charges for iPhone. The first is a charging wristlet folio that retails for $120 that'll come in black, cobalt and almond. The second is a fringe cross body that retails for $100 and works with both iPhone 6 / 6s and 6 / 6s Plus.

All of the new accessories will launch tomorrow, September 12 on Case-Mate.com and RebeccaMinkoff.com.

Well. They're not for me anymore. But when I was in my 20's I would have gone for the two on the right. They remind me of the punk, new wave style stuff we wore in the 80's, but still manage to look current.

The Hermes ones are so much better looking than these knockoffs - oops I mean mink off. :p

erm.... won't the one on the middle block the sensors rendering it useless?!?
Yes but for some people (not me) they don't use the watch for activity tracking or payments. They use it as a statement or a simple notification system. I have seen users with just the motion or picture faces and for my use this does not work either. I like complications. The point here is that each user, more and more, is being given choice.

I like them... but I wish they had the black ones with SS hardware. I don't know how good these would look with my SS Watch...

The more bands I see the more I want an Apple Watch. If the 2.0 update makes apps load faster I'll seriously consider getting the black stainless sport

Black and SS look awesome together. I can visualize it easily and the contrast looks good to me.

You can attach a 38mm strap to the 42mm watch. Giving some thought to that double wrap strap with a 42mm watch face.

Nope it's different from the Hermes one, take a look at the one above and follow the loops... then take a look at the Hermes one, the Hermes one will not obscure the sensor, this one will and can slip behind the sensor

Both are double loop bands. Go do a google image search for images of people wearing double loop watch bands... you'll see that you don't simply just loop it over twice underneath the watch... one of the loops always goes to the side (like a bracelet).
