Spigen is one of those accessories with something of a hit/miss record with me. I have some superb experiences with the Glas.T range for iPad and iPhone, and yet there are poor products in the line up like the leather range of iPhone backs. So, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I was sent the Karim Rashid cases.
This latest range from Spigen SGP were produced in partnership with “one of the most prolific designers of his generation.” The case itself features an interesting design, both from an application and style point of view. It’s made of three parts: the frame (splits in to two) and the designer insert that slides over the back of your iPhone. It’s easy enough to assemble, and looks awesome when applied. It actually forms part of the Linear series of cases, designed with the intent to be mixed and matched with other frames and covers.
On first looks, I’m impressed. I love the design. I really appreciate how easy it is to apply, and yet, how firmly it grips to my iPhone. Despite being made of two separate parts, the frame doesn’t easily come loose. It frustrated me at first, but, then I checked the instructions on how to remove it, and all became clear. To by one complete case package costs $27.99. This gets you one frame and one insert. To buy a frame separately costs only $4.99 or $6.99 depending on which design you go for. A replacement back cover costs $9.99, but, you can’t purchase the Karim Rashid design covers for that price. Sadly, they only available with the case package.
