This is not about you, or your style, or your how you operate in the most fashionable way day-by-day. Nope. This is about your phone. That little gadget we pin our eyes onto so many times has become the one thing we cannot go a day without. Hell an hour. It’s an accessory. The IT thing everyone has, and everyone with a penchant for fashion and funky accessories personalizes courtesy of the millions of iphone cases out there. Did the iphone just become the doll of our generation? We dress it up, bling it up, change its clothes so many times, we might as well consider it an extension of our own style. When 2 years ago at Fashion Week every single person was showcasing (read flaunting) their iphones in the most funky fun posh cases ever – it was clear: the iphone case is the trend! It started once this phone became our addiction and now we just found the perfect way to give this little thang more oompf. Last week over a talk I had with one of my friends about all these accessories for gadgets it hit me: the phone case is actually a thing of our generation.
Then I remembered all those posts I did of Fashion Week street style where every single blogger, fashionista, photographer, editor or designer was spotted carrying alongside designer bags, rings, bracelets, show invites and the rest – their iphones – all dressed up in the best
clothes cases for the event. Wait… is she talking to a tiny little animal? No. It’s her phone’s case. Duh. From basic simple ones, that now just seem boring to the most colored, funky funny styles ever, phone cases are a dime a dozen. Printed, glittery, sparkled, textured, with funny texts, animal faces & bodies, insects, eyes, noses – just to make you love your phone more. Like that was ever possible. These pretty little things meant to protect our phones have also made designers like Marc Jacobs or Diane Von Furstenberg make a few styles themselves. And the best part about them in general, be it designer or corner-shop case – they are fucking affordable as if to feed our thirst for opulence or fun all the time. So what if I already have 20, I could use 200 more. Right? I could coordinate it to my nails one day, to my lipstick another, to my shoes or my mood, why not?
