Arriving just in time for my vacation to Hawaii, OtterBox’s most fashion forward case yet couldn’t have been more suited for a stylish island getaway. Exploding with bold hues and edgy patterns, this high-powered iPhone cover managed to make a statement all in itself–the same way an awesome outfit or hot hairdo would. This comes as no surprise, of course, being that it was designed by a woman at the forefront of fashion today.
Nina Garcia, the Creative Director of Marie Claire, a “Project Runway” judge, and one of my favorite leaders in the industry is the creative behind my beautiful case. Her runway ready, fashion-oriented cover is part of OtterBox’s “Symmetry Series,” meant to keep smartphones safe in a sleek, slim, visually appealing cover. Garcia’s design, titled “Brazilian Pop!” and inspired by the movement and colors of beautiful Brazil is more than just a phone case. “It reflects my passion for style,” the style icon explains.
Fabulous it may be, but per OtterBox standards, Garcia’s couture cover proved functional too. My iPhone withstood shock from drops and remained scratch and dent free, protected along my ten day long Oahu adventure, from waterfall bound hikes to sand filled beach days…and everything in between. The colorful case is available to subscribers of the Nina Garcia ‘Brazilian Summer #NGQ03’ box and for a limited time, on the OtterBox website for iPhone 5/5s and the Galaxy S 5.
