Can Vogue Make Google Glass Fashionable?

Google Glass started appearing on models in runway shows nearly a year ago, so Google has known for some time that the “wearability” aspect of its newest product might prove…problematic. Several of the interviewees in the New York Times Bits blog’s recent take on this fashion conundrum even used the word “dorky” to explain their reluctance to wear Glass in public. But will a twelve-page Vogue spread really turn the tide in Glass’s favor?

High fashion was never about selling to the masses. While we don’t care to stereotype, we also can’t imagine that the Vogue audience in any resembles the Google Glass audience. How do these shots push the idea of Glass as an everyday accessory any more convincingly than Google’s own stock photos?

Not working for us, sorry. But then we waited three years to buy an iPhone, so what do we know?
