Burton, Swarovski, Montblanc, and others are making premium Galaxy S6 accessories
Samsung has a long history of collaborating with luxury brands for accessories and even limited editions of its devices. The most recent example is Montblanc, which introduced ultra expensive styluses and covers for the Galaxy Note 4.
For the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge, Samsung is really emphasizing design and how the S6 is “uniting the worlds of fashion and technology.” So it should come as no surprise that Samsung is doubling down on partnerships with fashion brands, including Burton, Swarovski, Montblanc, and Rebecca Minkoff, as well as artist Romero Britto.
Snowboarding gear specialist Burton is creating “vibrant protective covers inspired by two of the brands most popular print designs.”
Swarovski has collaborated with Samsung before; unsurprisingly, the company is launching a “colorful series of premium, protective, crystal-embellished covers that reflects the different shades of glass in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.”
Montblanc is offering “leather made cases and flip covers designed in the Montblanc manufacture in Italy.” While Rebeca Minkoff’s contribution is “a playful and subtly edgy flower print protective cover and leather pouch”
Finally, Romero Britto is behind the “unique, clear covers” you can see below.
Samsung says these accessories will be available from its store come the release date of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on April 11. Joining these premium products in the store will be a slew of more reasonably priced accessories for the two devices, ranging from battery packs to a multitude of covers.
