Forget about fake leather! Samsung is outing a limited-edition Galaxy Note 3 cover with every available space occupied by a Swarovski crystal. This expensive and exquisite accessory will be on display at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.
This is not Samsung's first venture into bridging technology and fashion, and it is unlikely to be its last. In September last year, the device manufacturer unveiled accessories for the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 Zoom fit for fashionistas. While those sported rather subdued and distinctly Korean designs, Samsung is going all out with this new rear cover offering.
Samsung has partnered with Swarovski, a name renowned for its crystals, to deliver what the Korean manufacturer calls a celebration of creativity. The cases even come in three color option of Jet Black, Crystal Metallic Silver, and a third that is a mixture of Crystal Bermuda Blue and Crystal Metallic Light Gold. There is even a matching bracelet of the same color, also covered by Swarovski crystals.
Aside from being showcased at the Mercedes-Benz event, the crystal-studded case and bracelet will also be on sale at Swarovski's Manhattan retail store for $299, without the Galaxy Note 3, of course. They will be, however, available for only a limited time and in limited stocks.
