Ever since upgrading to an iPhone 6 from my iPhone 5 back in April I've found it incredibly hard to find cases that I like but also sturdy enough to put up with my pure clumsiness and bad luck. With my previous iPhone I'd gathered quite the collection of 'cute' cases, yet here we are reading about the next iPhone launches and brands haven't quite jumped into creating cases for us yet.
With yet more failed searches, I was over the moon when the kind folk at Iconemesis got in touch recently to see if I'd like to pick out a case from their website. I obviously headed straight on over in hope they'd fulfil the need of iPhone cases. For those of you who haven't heard of Iconemesis, they're a British brand which focuses on fashionable iPhone cases featuring unique artwork from artists and illustrators. Having launched in 2011 the brand has grown due to its community of artists, bloggers and social media followers.
There were a few designs to catch my eye (okay more than a few, practically all of them were my style) but I eventually settled on one of the adorable Fifi Lapin cases. With my birthday coming up this week (July 15th) what better design than the £15 Fifi Lapin Bunny Cupcake? When I started out blogging I'd always see girls featuring adorable Fifi Lapin designs, how the brands slipped my mind we'll never know though at the time I probably still had my awful Blackberry. As you can see the design features a lilac background, black and grey teardrops with the 'it-bunny' dressed as a cherry topped cupcake. The case fits like a glove, covering the whole back of the iPhone 6, including sides with a little 'lip' which seems to be more protective than my other cases - all buttons, cameras and 'slots' are easily accessible too. Now what do I love most about the case? The material. I hate having iPhone cases which are just plastic. They really don't offer that much protection, with chips and cracks appearing before I've even managed to drop the phone. This particular Iconemesis has a smooth matte/rubberised finish which allows the design to last and offers a lot more protection from slipping, sliding and drops. Having only had the case since Wednesday I can easily say I'll be heading back to the Iconemesis site for more cases when I fancy a change from my adorable cupcake design. Everyone seems to be loving the case too, I've had so many compliments about the design AND quality.
