Samsung’s penchant for a bit of bling continues after it signed off on a handful of new Swarovski Crystal accessories for its Galaxy S5 smartphone and Gear Fit smartwatch.
The Swarovski for Samsung collaboration follows a successful accessories partnership at the recent New York Fashion Week and the crystal encrusted offering represents the first time Swarovski has integrated its branding into electronics items on this scale.
“With technology and fashion so deeply intertwined, we at Samsung want to support our customers in expressing themselves through technological innovation and great partnerships,” said Simon Stanford, Vice President of IT & Mobile division, Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland. “Collaborating with Swarovski on this stunning collection of accessories highlights our ongoing commitment to providing people with devices that express their individual personalities and tastes.”
Samsung Galaxy S5 owners will be able to purchase a back cover that has Swarovski Crystal Fine Rocks embedded into it and two crystal effects have been merged into one motif as an extra feature of the complex design.
The Gear Fit charm sliders come in a wide variety of different colours and styles, and there is the ability to mix and match them to suit the occasion in question. The bar colours on offer include brown, golden shadow and crystal, whereas the dangle styles include Siam heart, light rose heart, crystal skull, anthracite skull, crystal star, blue start and golden shaw lips crystals.
“Samsung and Swarovski share a commitment to bringing high quality, highly desired products to the consumer market, and together, we have succeeded with the Swarovski for Samsung collection,” said Christoph Kargruber, Executive Vice President Global Marketing, Swarovski Professional.
The items are already on sale through the Samsung online store in the UK and select Samsung retail stores will also be stocking the items from 22 May.
