The list of designers with cell phones just got longer: Italian virtuoso Giambattista Valli will get his own roaming signal at Paris Fashion Week, thanks to Nokia. Mr. Valli follows Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Diane Von Furstenberg, Betsey Johnson, and Baby Phat in designing a new phone and accessories. The phone comes in black or ivory, with a satin bow-sewn case and a silver skull charm to dangle from the antenna. It debuts before the Valli show in Paris, and will retail for about $300 in Europe (and eventually, of course, here). For years, tech companies have been calling cell phones an "accessory," but the explosion of designer mobiles might actually make it true - do you think teen girls will swap cell phones to match their outfits, the way grown women do with handbags? A more important question: Does the Valli phone come with a camera? Because we fully expect whomever gets it to snap photos of the Valli show for us...
