But why is it so popular right now?

Following the 70’s and 80’s bright and colourful pieces, funky patterns and little bit more glitter, the Y2K is a happy and eloquent style that changed fashion history. Between Indie Sleaze, Scene and Twee style, we’re definitely referring to the one an only nostalgia, butterfly clips, “Lizzie McGuire” kinda vibe - ‘noughties’ as you might call it.

Before smartphones and the latest iPhone design dominated the scene, cell phones like the Motorola RAZR and Blackberry were the must-have accessory. Yes, accessory. Even ‘noughties’ pioneers like Paris Hilton and Rihanna weren’t able to resist. That’s why we're here - cell phone nostalgia - Back in the day when phone cases weren’t even a thing (or necessary, were they?) and people were decorating their phones with gems and stickers.

This shows that our phones play such a significant role in our everyday lives, and are also something that we use to reflect part of our personality. Nowadays phone covers are almost a must when it comes to protecting our 800£ devices but also, for this exact same reason - personality.

And in case you haven’t noticed yet, yes - We’ve also given in and started our own phone case collection inspired by the loved-hated 00’s trends. And we should tell you that this was the most fun of all and it’s still one of our and YOUR favourites!


Here’s our top picks:
