If trying to pre-order the iPhone 12 Pro (that happens tonight, Oct 16, at 8pm) is giving you FOMO, then perhaps here’s an upcoming tech-related launch that might make you hold on to your iPhone 11 for now.
Enter Fendi’s collaboration with Chaos, the London techcessories brand label founded by Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall. If you’ve been on our site for a while, you would know that we’ve been hyping about the tie-up since the time we saw the designs on the runway in February at Milan Fashion Week.
This Fendi x Chaos collaboration is made for both the tech and fashion fiend.
No stranger to the maison, Stockdale and Lyall have been consulting for the Italian fashion house since the era of Karl Lagerfeld. True to their trademark high impact style, their designs for Fendi boast plenty of gold and shine – a tribute to old Hollywood glamour.
That #throwback inspiration translates to designs like metallic handphone holders, golden cases for Airpods and a mesh handphone case which are reminiscent of vintage evening clutches, minaudieres and cigarette cases of Old Hollywood.
The gilded phone cases and Airpods case are inspired by vintage evening clutches.
There are also novelty designs like lanyards adorned with pretty little charms that you will actually want to wear as a necklace, and a stylus that can be worn as a mono earring or bag charm.
The collection will have an exclusive pre-launch on www.fendi.com on Oct 17 before dropping worldwide in stores on Oct 20. In case you’re wondering, all of the handphone cases and holders are indeed compatible with iPhone 11 models. Now is it too late to reconsider that new phone purchase?
Below our top picks from the Fendi x Chaos outing.
