There’s never a wrong time to grab a phone case, considering a screen crack is only one drop away. From a classic case that can be purchased when snagging your phone to brands like Wildflower Cases being deemed, “fashion’s favorite phone cases,” a protective phone case has become essential.

“I’m a big fan of Wildflower and I have quite a collection of cases from them so I was really excited to collaborate with them on my very own case,” activist and model Salem Mitchell said. Mitchell is the latest to partner with the smart-phone accessory brand. “This collaboration was not only fun, but it taught me a lot about how businesses run and I feel that’s only going to benefit me moving forward.”

Wildflower Cases have gotten the attention of Gen-Z buyers due to their nostalgic references and fun partnerships. The brand has been featured in publications such as Vogue and Forbes, and has been seen spotted on celebrities like Saweetie, Halsey and Steve Lacy. “When designing my Wildflower case I wanted a case I’d never want to take off of my phone,” says Mitchell. The model’s influence stemmed from some of her favorite fashion trends, which include “swirly prints, abstract patterns, and cool tones.” The phone case mimics a ’90s mall photo studio background, homing in on past trends making a comeback.

Partnerships like this one may cue an eyebrow raise and cause one to wonder just how involved the talent truly was in the design process, however Mitchell says that she was extremely hands-on with this particular project. “What I enjoyed most about this collaboration was getting to expand on my creativity outside of modeling. I got to experience all the behind-the-scenes work like the design process, production, and webpage preparation.” the model said.

The Salem Mitchel x Wildflower collaboration is priced between $35-37 and can be purchased here.
