Case-Mate’s Trend Setting Cases

Whether you’re a style enthusiast or dedicated follower of fashion, it only stands to reason that your phone case should definitely be as fashion-forward as you are. These days, our smartphones are practically glued to our palms for most of our waking hours and as such their appearance becomes an extension of our self-identity, just like any other fashion item. Decadently designed phone cases not only protect your phone but allow you to stand out from the crowd and express your individual style.

Fashion Mobile Case Sales on the Increase for Frequency Telecom

At Frequency, we’ve seen sales of these fashion cases more than triple over the last year. Case-Mate fashion case sales increased over 700% year on year (Q1 2014/2015) ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge launch in April 2015. The Barely There case remains the most popular case for Frequency, but is now being hotly contested by this new breed of fashion orientated cases from the Brilliance to the Karat!

The introduction of the Case-Mate x Rebecca Minkoff collection spurred an uplift of 1400% in September last year when the iPhone 6s/6s Plus was released.  Sales of the Case-Mate Sheer Glam case also increased over 600% and Karat case sales rose by 1900%.


So what is the driving force behind this dramatic change in behaviour?  The answer quite simply is women. Globally there are more women in the workforce than ever before and 70-80% of all consumer purchases are driven by women.  This is either through a combination of their buying power or influence behind someone else’s purchase.

Women represent one of the world’s greatest emerging markets. Their consumer power and impact on the economy is growing every year which leads us to believe that this trend for all things bling is here to stay.
