My phone is less than two years old and my friends say I have the equivalent of an early 90s bag phone with a two-foot antenna. I’ve been on the verge of pulling the trigger on an iPhone, but the pragmatist in me says to keep waiting to reap the benefits (and cost savings) of the next inevitable iPhone ‘upgrade’ Apple will launch—most likely the day after I buy one. But now I have one more reason to be jealous of my phone-fashion-forward friends, with the stylish new Elan Form Chilewich Case for the iPhone 3G and 3GS. Created through a partnership between Sandy Chilewich and Griffin Technology, the impact resistant cover features the signature strong and easy-to-clean basketweave vinyl textile you’ll find in all Chilewich products: from bags, placemats and utility mats to woven floor mats and window shades. It’s about $40, and available in two colors (gravel and light gray) through the Apple Store and MoMa. Between this great new modern phone cover, and my inability to remember song titles (there’s an app for that), I think it’s finally time to join the iCrowd.
