With the busy woman in mind, Michael Kors has created a line of tech accessories that look like cosmetics. Sorry, no wearables just yet, but the collection includes other nifty gadgets such as phone chargers and ear buds, modelled after lipsticks and compact powder cases. Here come the 'what's in my bag' Instagram photos.

"The men and women who I design for are constantly on the go," Michael told WWD. "They live full lives, and they need their phones to work from morning until night, breakfast to boardroom, on business trips and vacation."

Charging devices include the PowerCase (an iPhone case with an in-built battery) and Powermat (a wireless charging pad, made in collaboration with Duracell).

"Whether you're a technophile or technophobe, the beauty of this technology is that it is so easy. In this fast world, which is only getting faster, you never want your phone to die," the designer added.

The new accessories are expected to be available for purchase in stores and online by the end of November.
