    The September 2013 issue of Vogue.

It's a window onto Glass.

It's not just techno-savvy teens that are excited for smartwatches and Google Glass-like gadgets to hit the market. Fashion bible "Vogue" has just published a 12-page spread in their latest Fall Fashion issue featuring the futuristic gadgets.

With images that are color drenched and retro-futuristic, the images conjure up Jetsons-era visions of the future. But this is no vision: Glass is very much real. And it's hardly alone.

Apple, Samsung, Sony and most other tech giants are all making high-tech devices you can wear, products to be thought of as not only a gadget but as a fashion statement. Indeed, Apple recently hired Jay Blahnik, the brain behind Nike's FuelBand initiative and Paul Deneve, a top Yves Saint Laurent executive to run "special projects."

There are also rumors of a gold iPhone as well as a new bold color palette for Apple products. It seems today's tech giants are as concerned with the design of the gear as with the hardware.

Glass is expected to be available for public purchase in early 2014. Perhaps Vogue's photo shoot will help give Glass a seal of approval in the fashion world.
