The proliferation of international fashion cognoscenti clutching the increasingly ubiquitous plus-sized phone has us reconsidering the place of this previously niche XL device. No longer the exclusive domain of tech-obsessed creatives, Samsung’s launch of their new Note7 has put a spotlight on the functionality and size of our phones — and, naturally, the people who are using them. With the brand’s revered suite of features honed even further and applied to the latest and greatest Note (including water resistant practicality and the most brilliant phone camera we’ve come across by far) — the almost unavoidable question has been proposed: can we go bigger too? With the most important event on the New Zealand fashion calendar taking place this week, the obvious answer is ‘why not?’
So, along with newly appointed Samsung x NZFW ambassador Jaime Ridge, we’ve made like proper fashion bloggers – pounding the pavement and hitting up shows with our new Note7’s in tow to bring you the best looks of the week. Herewith, our shots from Day 1 & 2 of NZFW 2016, stay tuned for more ‘outfits of the day’ presented with the new Note7.
Samsung is an official partner of New Zealand Fashion Week. Throughout Fashion Weekend, guests are invited to stop by the Samsung Galaxy Note7 Zone, where complimentary one-on-one contouring sessions with a professional makeup artist will be on offer. Samsung will also be unveiling a Note7 Waterwall installation, showcasing the smartphone’s water resistant functionality. For more details on Samsung’s Note7, click here.
