Sleek luxury accessories to jazz up your gadgets
These days, working in a fast-paced digital world translates to owning multiple gadgets. These elite electronics have slowly edged their way in as essential partners in our lives, and for some of us, functioning without them is inconceivable. Since our favourite gadgets are our literal sidekick, it might be time to jazz them up a little.
The luxury industry has branched out from making clothing and accessories for our beings. Instead, they’ve started journeying into the world of making clothes for our gadgets, whether its tiny micro-bags to house our AirPods or trendsetting phone cases to stash our phones in.
Even top luxury houses like Chanel and Fendi have ventured into the world of clothing gadgets. It’s no longer a surprise to spot such accessories down the runways or in fashion campaigns. If you’re looking to take your technology style up a notch, here are some sleek luxury accessories to help jazz up your gadgets.
Chanel Belt AirPods Pro Holder
Fashion aficionados who are fans of Chanel will definitely love this one. Store your AirPods in this plush case that features the French luxury house’s signature quilt design. Style the holder as a belt for a statement piece, or as a crossbody accessory for a chic touch.
Louis Vuitton Wireless Earphones Case
You’ll never lose your wireless earphones again with Louis Vuitton’s wireless earphones cases. These stylish pouches are designed with the iconic Louis Vuitton monogram motifs atop their leather canvas covers.
The metal snap hook allows the case to be attached to belt loops or bag handles, making it the perfect travel-friendly accessory. Best yet, unlike many other earphone cases, the shape of the Louis Vuitton earphone cases aren’t specifically designed for AirPods. There are currently three different in-house designs available, as well as a special fourth design as part of a collaboration with Japanese designer Nigo.
Alexander McQueen Phone Pouch
This luxe phone pouch combines practicality with elevated style. If you’re constantly rummaging through your bag searching for your phone, this stylish phone pouch will be your new BFF. The black patent leather with embossed crocodile effect creates a chic and luxurious pouch, whilst the gold-tone shoulder strap provides an avant-garde edge. The tiny skull embedded onto the bag adds on a small rebellious touch.
Loewe Elephant iPhone Case
If you constantly have your phone in your hands, this phone case with its accompanying body strap will be perfect for you. Spanish luxury brand Loewe has crafted this adorable elephant phone case to pay homage to the brand’s iconic bag of the same shape.
You’ll never drop your phone again with this phone strap case. Besides keeping your hands free, this stylish yet practical phone case has another function – the elephant also doubles as a phone stand. Whilst the brand currently only has cases for iPhone X/XS and 11, cases fit for the iPhone 12 or others might just debut soon enough.
Fendi x Chaos
Early last month, Fendi announced a partnership with British luxury technology brand Chaos. The collaboration saw the launch of a capsule collection consisting of pieces that bring out the best in both fashion and technology.
This shearling-lined laptop cover is a fun statement piece to dress your laptop in. The pink sheepskin inlaid with white Fendi lettering is charmingly eye-catching, and will definitely make your laptop stand out amongst the sea of silver.
Amidst the line-up of Fendi x Chaos is a metal smartwatch case, which speaks to the collaboration’s motto to ‘leave no device uncovered’. Constructed from black metal with a diamond-effect gold finish, the smartwatch case is dazzlingly modern with a touch of vintage charm.
Hermès Apple Watch Straps
The Hermès and Apple collaboration has always been an iconic one that brings about refined elegance to the Apple watches. The updated powerhouse collection from the French Maison features new leather straps in vibrant shades as well as exclusive watch faces.
