It’s 2017 and unarguably, our most essential accessory is our phone. Despite world-class designers working to create a slim, sleek and seamless design for the ol’ iPhone, the desire for a little customisation combined with an unrelenting fear that our screens are going to crack at any moment has made for quite the subculture for phone cases. Newsflash Apple, instead of working so hard on wireless charging and getting rid of our beloved headphone port, can we work toward uncrackable screens please?
In the meantime, it only takes a month or so before our new phone case seems old again and we’re stalking a dazzling catalog of cases online, deciding that we need them. Mix and match to suit your mood – luxurious in leather or kitchy with bells on top? Outrageous finds to functional and chic, we’ve picked out our 10 favourites for you below.
Artist and fine art photographer Gray Malin’s work is all up in our feeds and we don’t mind one bit. Carry around a piece of his escapism with you with his reef case.
