Roseanne Morrison, fashion director for The Doneger Group, an industry consultant, said the design fell short of her expectations.
â€œItâ€™s not pretty,â€ she told Reuters. â€œIt’s very future techno as opposed to feminine sexy.â€
Feminine sexy would alienate about 50% of the market.
â€œThe Apple Watch will be a status symbol to carry,â€ he said. But the design is â€œgeneric in the sense of its flexibility and individualization.â€ With the exception of the bright colors and gold trim, he added, it is â€œa very masculine watch.â€
Note to InStyle Magazine fashion news director Eric Wilson: you don’t carry the Apple Watch, at least most people won’t. I disagree that the Apple Watch is very masculine. The Apple Watch is neither feminine or masculine. It’s not unisexual either; it’s asexual, just like all of its products.
