He’s designed togs for Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss and the celebrity A-list. This time, though, grey-haired Italian designer Roberto Cavalli has applied his trademark animal prints not to a supermodel’s dress or a pair of shoes but a phone. For you.
Roberto’s mobile of choice, the LG U880, already has a history of eye-catching designs: it’s been on sale in pink for a while now. Now, you’ll also be able to pick it up dressed in gold, black (both pictured above) and a white version. Zebra stripes don’t push our buttons, but if you’ve always wanted a touch of the African savannah in your pocket, this could be the limited edition phone for you.
Specs are standard – not good, not embarrassing – with a 1.3MP cam, Bluetooth, memory card slot and an MP3 player that’ll spin Windows Media files. Fans of classy build quality should note it’s already been superceded by the more expensive-feeling U890.
