Fashion meets function once again in the iPod world.
A new $275 jacket from Los Angeles fashion design firm Kenpo comes with a five-button touchpad on the sleeve and an inner pocket that holds either an iPod or an iPod mini.
The jacket is machine washable, completely self-powered and requires no batteries.
Kenpo says it may eventually offer clothing that functions with other MP3 players and electronic gadgets.
There are more than 1,000 accessories made specifically for the iPod, ranging from high-end fashion cases to speaker systems to automobile integration kits.
