As long as you're wearing pants, your cell phone battery will not be at risk of dying while you're out. At least that's the concept that fashion designer Adrien Sauvage is unveiling tonight at his spring/summer show in London.

The newest wearable technology, which is a collaboration between Sauvage and Microsoft, will house parts from the Nokia DC-50, a portable wireless charging device, in one of the front pockets of the pants. Sauvage told Business Insider that there were some challenges in the design stages, including failing to develop a way for the pants to be machine washable.

"Having something that you could wear without the technology feeling cumbersome was a challenge," Sauvage said. "It was also difficult to distribute the heat so that the wearer wouldn't feel like they were in a sauna."

The trousers are the first of their kind, which is paramount considering the surge in popularity and curiosity in wearable technology.

The pants will be sold on Amazon.com in the wearable technology section for "over $340," says Sauvage, though a specific price has not yet been set.
