Target Is Now Selling Designer iPhone Cases From Trina Turk and Others
For all of my friends with iPhones and iPads, you’ve got a new reason to make a trip to Target this spring. Designers Trina Turk, Orla Kiely, Nicole Miller, and Tracy Reese have all created cases for your favorite tech accessories, and we’ve got a first look, starting with a few of Turk’s designs:
Turk is one of the first designers to launch her tech collection at Target. “The cases I designed fit both the iPhone 5 and 5S and are available exclusively at Target stores nationwide through the spring and summertime and will then be available at TrinaTurk.com and Trina Turk boutiques,” she told us.
What made you want to put your designs on a phone case?
“I have an iPhone 5S,” she said. “Deciding to put my designs on phone cases was very organic. I was essentially inspired by the archive of print patterns that we have accumulated over the years and knew they’d make for great phone cases, a pop of color for women like me on the go.”
How did you settle on these patterns? Were they inspired by anything in particular?
“The inspiration for this phone case collection stems from the theme of taking the quintessential California road trip—the bold and beautiful scenery of the West Coast as well as new memories that are created during fun, spontaneous journeys. When I think of road-trip essentials, my iPhone is the first item that comes to mind.”
How many hours a day do you spend on your phone?
“I spend a lot of time on my phone! It helps me stay connected to friends, family, and work… I am also addicted to Instagram at the moment.”
Do the cases have any functional elements we should know about?
“I made sure they were slim-fitting, designed to slip easily into your favorite clutch or pocket. If you are like me, you carry your phone everywhere, so it was important to design a case that wasn’t bulky but was still stylish while protecting the phone with shatterproof casing.”
The designer iPhone and iPad Mini cases range from 19.99 to $49.99 and are available in Target stores (and some online) now through summer. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the designers’ cases!
