Thanks to the numerous selfie shoots and remotely-executed fashion editorials we’ve been accustomed to during the quarantine period, how your phone looks like has never been more important. The need to dress up your phone goes in tandem with the growing importance of tech accoutrements – in particular phone accessories – in fashion these days.
Hong Kong-based Casetify has teamed up with the likes of Saint Laurent and Thom Browne and decked out the phones of anyone from Pharell Wiliams to the Hadids. Meanwhile, Fendi’s tie-up with London tech accessories company Chaos for Fall/Winter 2020 is made for the social media/selfie set.
Out of the mix, the phone bag – a case design with a lanyard that allows one to carry the phone case as a crossbody bag – has emerged as the chicest and most practical of all tech accessories. With most labels offering a version of this style – cue Loewe’s elephant-shaped cases and Chanel’s quilted designs not unlike its chain wallets – picking the perfect one is as important as picking a designer bag.
Above, we’ve scoured some fashionables picks you’ll want to sling on.
