Every year I look forward to the Ted Baker accessory collection releases. The exclusive designer produces an array of luxury smartphone, tablet and eReader cases covering the latest devices including the iPhone 6/6s and iPad Mini 4.
I’ve managed to get my hands on two pieces of the collection one of which is the ARIES and the other is the KNOWANE case, both of which are for the iPhone 6/6s.
AW16 ARIES iPhone 6/6s Case
We’ve seen the ARIES folio case in past Ted Baker collections, but the 2016 release sees a slightly revamped style. With a textured , cross-hatched leather effect covering the entire exterior you get a real feel of quality when holding the case. Toward the bottom you’ll find a brushed silver metal logo branding plate embedded into the case.
Opening up the folio you’ll see it integrates a hard back shell. This will ensure your phone is secure and protected throughout the day. On the hard shell you’ll find all of your usual cut-outs allowing easy access to all of the functions and features.
On the opposite side is a single card slot which is perfect for storing business, payment or travel cards. The case also doubles up as a stand for your iPhone using the folio design.
Overall this case has been a pleasure to use. It’s not the slimmest case, despite being extremely lightweight and you will notice the extra bulk which this adds to your device. This being said it adds the useful features of a card slot, stand and not forgetting the protective aspects you’d expect from a case.
AW16 KNOWANE iPhone 6/6s Case
The KNOWANE features a similar folio style to the ARIES case and is styled with a opulent porcelain rose floral print, instantly giving the case a more feminine look. Instead of a metal branding plate, you’ll find an injected rose gold logo adorning the front cover.
On the inside you’ll find Ted Baker have rather cleverly concealed an interior mirror, perfect for when you’re on the move. Simply flip back the folio and it’s ready to use. A hidden magnet will help to ensure the case stays closed when you’re not using the phone and will help to prevent the mirror from scratches.
The hard shell which your phone is secured into has been electroplated in a rose gold hue which looks absolutely gorgeous. This is something I’ve not seen from Ted Baker before and certainly emphasises their premium brand.
It seems, as usual, Ted has every little detail covered and left no loose ends.
The Ted Baker AW16 Collection certainly doesn’t disappoint. The lightweight and stylish cases not only offer considerable protection but add a touch of glamour and uniqueness to your otherwise ‘cloned’ phone.
