What's the one accessory that both men and women use the most? The phone case, of course. It's on our mobiles and, consequently, on our person almost constantly. And while your shoes and your bag may be an indication of your personal style, the way you choose to dress your phone is equally telling.

Recognising the importance of a good fashion collaboration, the Middle East division of Chinese consumer electronics company Oppo recruited Lebanese designer Walid Atallah, who has designed three limited-edition phone cases for the Oppo F3.

Atallah specialises in creating evening wear and bridal wear. His designs for Oppo feature a pared-down approach. Cases feature abstract backgrounds in pink and blue, with the addition of dragon appliqué. The third design is simpler, depicting a male and female figure taking a selfie. The Oppo F3 phone features a high-resolution 16-megapixel camera and dual front-facing selfie camera.

The three phone cases cost Dh49 each, and will be available from mid-August exclusively in the UAE.
