When it comes to iPhone cases, there are those who prefer a more practical looking cover (or none at all, which is pretty daring in our opinion) and there are those who want to make a fun, silly, and sometimes impractical statement with their tech accessory. For those of you in the latter category, then this Taste Test is for you. Can you tell that there’s an over $60 price difference between these two iPhone cases inspired by a serving of French fries?
Answer: While most iPhone cases are shaped like cartoon characters or come in crazy patterns, Jeremy Scott, the new creative director of Moschino looked towards the iconic dishes (and golden arches) of McDonald’s for his debut Fall/Winter 2014 collection. One of the most coveted pieces includes his Moschino Special Edition FW14 Capsule Collection iPhone 5 Case ($85), which is shaped like French fries straight from the Mickey D’s $1 menu. Unfortunately, the price is anything but $1. In fact, there’s a similar style that’s been available for purchase even before the Moschino runway show: the ASOS iPhone 5 Fries Moulded Case ($22.58). Besides the recognizable Moschino logo, the two iPhone cases are pretty much twins! Which one would you prefer? And if you want to see the rest of Moschino‘s McDonald’s-inspired accessories, you can find (and shop) it here.
