Samsung has done a lot with its smartphones (See: Special Edition Samsung Black Galaxy S4 and S4 mini) but the electronics giant is now partaking in conquests of other sort. The brand has collaborated with Swarovski to design its backstage VIP lounge at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week FW14 (MBFW) in New York. Snowball effect or not, the sparkly partnership also means a limited-edition custom cover for the latest Galaxy Note.
“At Samsung, we embrace the creativity of fashion and enable it through our technology. Together with Swarovski, we’re celebrating that creativity with a specially-designed backstage lounge and a limited-edition custom cover for one of our latest smartphones during this season’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week,” said executive vice president of Samsung, Young Hee Lee. While the former translates to custom sparkling decor including a stunning Swarovski crystal curtain, the latter, from the looks of it may well be called the season’s must-have accessory.
Swathed in exquisite Swarovski Fine Crystal Rocks, the Galaxy Note 3 cover comes in three variants, Jet (black), a custom blend of Crystal Bermuda Blue and Crystal Metallic Light Gold, and Crystal Metallic Silver. Moreover, each has equally stunning bracelets in tow. “The gorgeous, Swarovski crystal-covered cover adds a glamorous touch to the beautifully designed Galaxy Note 3 to make it the must-have device this MBFW.” Needless to say, the crystal encrusted cover-bracelet duos will be launched during the much-anticipated event in New York. They will be available for purchase at the Swarovski retail store at 696 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, for a limited time and retail for $299.
