New York-Based designers Sarah Frances Kuhn (SFK) and Meredith Wendell are teaming up to bring a little bit more fashion into the world of photography. Only their fashion accessories won’t be displayed on a model standing in front of your camera, they’ll be keeping your camera securely attached to you.

BlackRapid‘s new series of rear lens caps, dubbed “LensBling,” offer an interesting way to organize and identify your lenses in a hurry. The ideal moment doesn’t wait for you to find the right lens, and so the precious moments you could save when trying to distinguish your 85mm from your 105mm could mean the difference between a great picture and a missed opportunity.
At $8.50 per cap they’re not a bad deal; but even though it wouldn’t look quite as “blingy,” we can’t help but think that the DIY route involving a strip of tape and sharpie would probably work just as well.
