We're not exactly on top of the fashion world around here, so when the fashion and phone industries collide, it often makes for an awkward experience. Such is the case here, where luggage maker Mandarina Duck (who?) has teamed up with Carphone Warehouse and Alcatel to craft a line of branded handsets. Nothing special here -- quite the contrary, actually, with Bluetooth and an integrated MP3 player being the major talking points. Also included is an unusual bag clip charm, allowing the lucky owner to attach the phone to a carry-on (Mandarina Duck brand, of course). Get it starting next month in three horrifying shades -- Cherry Red, Purple, and Green -- exclusively from the Carphone Warehouse for a to-be-determined price.
