Nike showcases the Air Max Spring 2021 collection

Looking fancy~

Nike Air is popular for a reason. It’s an ever-evolving platform with a design worth celebrating whether you’re a sneakerhead or an average user. This year, Nike decks out the Air Max Spring 2021 collection with three key silhouettes: the Air Max 2090 EOI, the Air Max Viva, and the VaporMax Evo.

First in the lineup is the Air Max 2090 EOI (Evolution of Icons), taking inspiration from classic Air Max’s shoes. The hybrid subtly incorporated details from Air Max 90, Air Max 180, and the Air Max BW.

Meanwhile, the Air Max Viva follows recursive developments of specific women’s Air Max models. The Viva included a cushioned midsole and a magnified Air Max Unit in the heel. Also, it comes with two laces for styling — a speckled midsole and a two-tone rubber outsole — complementing its leather, closed mesh, and nubuck detailing.

On the other hand, the VaporMax Evo explores a bolder style for the VaporMax. When you look closely, the silhouette actually fused details from classics like the Air Max 90, Air Max 93, and the Air Max Plus.

Price and availability

The Air Max Spring Collection 2021 will be available throughout Spring 2021. (Obviously?!)

  • Air Max 2090 EOI — PhP 8,295
  • Air Max Viva — PhP 7,345
  • VaporMax Evo — PhP 10,545

Level up your #OOTD with these pink iPhone cases

Being a fashion-forward techie isn’t all about owning a gradient phone

Published

Buying a premium iPhone (regardless if new or used) means you need to take care of it. Even with the presence of Apple’s revolutionary Ceramic Shield glass found in the newer iPhone 12 and 13 series, they aren’t totally safe from scratches and cracks.

Although there are lot of quirky and classy-looking cases being offered for iPhones, not all of them provide the best protection.

Moshi begs to differ as they offer more than meets the eye.

Lookbook 1: Premium perfection and protection

I honestly don’t know where Moshi got the name “Overture” but my playful mind immediately thought of mashing up the words “overkill” and “couture” — not that it’s a bad thing. In fact, I love how Moshi went all out with this phone case.

My conspiracy behind the product naming? “Haute couture” is equivalent to high-end fashion design where designers tend to create and do high-class dressmaking and sewing. Moshi went “over” the line with a phone case couture. Thus, Overture.

If you’re into stylish cases that offer all-around protection, the Overture is for you. Not only does it have a cover to protect your iPhone’s delicate screen, it features a hardshell frame with military-grade MIL-STD-810G and SGS certification. In layman’s term, this case was tested and proven to withstand drops from all angles.

Also, if you’re a germaphobe, it features a special NanoShield antimicrobial coating to protect you from bacteria and germs. Its weather-resistance coating also comes handy especially if you live in an area with harsher climate conditions.

Speaking of, as the world’s climate condition continues to worsen, we should be vigilant about the products — including the cases we buy. You shouldn’t worry though as the Overture case is made from vegan leather. My point being: the case is cruelty-free and safe from harmful chemicals. This also means keeping it for longer, reducing the overall global carbon footprint.

If you wanted to risk not having the frontal protection and be “wreck-less”, the magnetic leather wallet can easily be removed by snapping it on or off from the main hardshell case.

That way, you won’t deal with leather covers that crease over time — especially when you always use your phone for calls.

While Moshi doesn’t fully-adapt Apple’s MagSafe system just yet, their SnapTo magnetic mounting system is here to save the day. It’s helpful if you already own a Moshi-branded charging mount for car use.

As there’s a continuous rise of contactless payment due to this never-ending pandemic, it makes sense that Overture can store your essential cards and some cash whenever and wherever you go. This lessens the hassle of opening wallets or card sleeves.

Lookbook 2: Altra Slim and stylish

If you’re into stylish cases without sacrificing bulkiness, Moshi’s Altra Slim is your next best bet. This case features a special textured grip made from polyurethane. This makes it more comfortable to hold even with one-hand. It also has soft touch buttons for that better “pressing feel”.

One of the distinct features of this case is the ability to attach and detach wrist traps (which is included in the package btw). Not only it saves your phone from accidental phones upon usage, it also steps up your overall look.

But just in case you drop it accidentally, this case has also passed the MIL-STD-810G and SGS military-grade certification just like the Overture. The case sides have that extra length to protect both the delicate display as well as the rear cameras.

The attachment is also a quick-release strap just in case you don’t want any accessory hindrances when using this case.

How to be a fashion-forward techie?

Flaunting your stylish #OOTDs in this modern age is a must in social media. But sometimes, wearing one color at once might look too hilarious for other fashion-driven individuals.

One thing I’ve noticed from the ever-trendy and desirable South Korean dress code is to always find a desirable “stand-out” element — especially when doing a wardrobe mix and match. What you wear doesn’t necessarily have to be in the same color, tone or hue. What matters more is how the colors of the pieces you wear will complement each other.

That being said, many of us still have our own fashion preferences. My friend, in her pseudonym “Paprika”, specifically chose to pair these premium pink cases with an overall dark #OOTD:

  • dark-colored blazer
  • floral blouse with hints of blue and pink
  • black choker with a silver cross pendant
  • silver earrings
  • black, glossy boots with gold eyelets and elements

This classy and elegant look goes well with Moshi’s set of premium cases. Most of all, it highlights your phone as your main choice of accessory.

In this house, we don’t totally believe in the notion that being a “fashion-forward techie” means owning a flashy, glittery, or a “gradient-licious” smartphone. At the end of the day, you’ll still a slap a case on it just so you can protect it.

This is why choosing a case that’s stylish, functional, and durable is important in defying your overall look — whether you’re at work, spend celebrations with your loved ones, or even have a night-out with your friends.

Looks matter, but assurance matters more

That applies either when buying a product, or when you’re trying to be in a relationship.

Jokes aside, just like any other Moshi products, the Overture and Altra Slim have two years of standard warranty. If you purchase one through their website, it’s automatically enrolled to their 10-year global warranty. This means you’re both assured when it comes to warranty and phone protection.

Disclaimer: warranty might not be available if you decide to buy it through distributors or third-party retailers.

The Moshi Overture is being sold at US$ 54.95 through Amazon.com, SG$ 89.00 at Lazada Singapore, and PhP 2,371.50 via an official distributor in Lazada PH. The one featured in the photos is the Luna Pink case variant meant for iPhone models starting with the iPhone 11 Pro Max up to the latest lineup (except for the 13 mini). Meanwhile, the more serious Jet Black colorway is available for the newer iPhone 12 and 13 series.

On the other hand, the Altra Slim is priced at US$ 44.95 on Amazon.com and PhP 2,390 through Lazada Philippines.

This case is available in several colors:

  • Rose Pink color option is limited to the iPhone 13 series (except 13 mini)
  • Midnight Blue is only available for the iPhone 12 series + 13 mini
  • Sahara Beige is the most flexible color option meant for the iPhone 11, 12, and 13 series (excluding 13 mini)
  • Shadow Black is only for the iPhone XR, XS Max, and 11 series; and
  • iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max also offer three other different colors: Blossom Pink, Mint Green, and Savanna Beige.
