Will Christian Dior be joining the hordes of fashion labels, and produce a mobile phone?

Mobile phones

You’re not a proper fashion designer unless you’ve tried your hand at designing a mobile phone (see: Motorola and Dolce & Gabbana, LG and Prada, Samsung and Armani amongst others), and considering Dior is one of those labels even your accountant has heard of, it’s surprising we’re only hearing about a possible product launch this year.

The above blingtastic handset has been shown over at Engadget Mobile, although little else is known about it. Swarovski crystals are a go-go, however, according to the photo, as well as its own…remote control.

Dior obviously knows how to sell mobiles, cough. It’s as yet unknown which mobile manufacturer they’ll partner with, or even if the above photo is nothing more than rumour.
