  • You know how the Queen signals staff with her handbag when she’s bored of a conversation? Well you can now do the same thing, albeit a more techie version, thanks to a new designer handbag.

    Bee & Kin is a new US brand by Tracey Hummel, that includes two features: a built-in flashlight so you never have to spend hours searching for your keys again, and a button that connects to your phone via an app, which is where it gets interesting.

    The smart button is linked to an app called Flic, which you can program to execute several useful functions for you, from taking pictures to finding your iPhone.

    It can also hang up calls for you if you’re busy, or make your phone ring if you want to get out of an awkward situation, thus avoiding getting your friend to do it. You can also press it to order an Uber so you don’t have to wait too long either. Genius.

    The handbags come in loads of different styles and colours, from work-appropriate tote bags to hexagon-shaped evening bags in black, silver, bright yellow and turquoise.

    Now the only slight issue is that they’re mainly available in the US, however they will ship internationally for $35, however they seem to be totally worth it.

    Smart and stylish.
