Patrons have now become the paparazzi, especially during Fashion Week, capturing the zeitgeist of every season outside events. Collective insta-experiences push the style forward through tags and geo-locations collated on decorated phones and now, the very tools used to document these changes in fashion have become the most visible accessory.

The act of taking a picture is as photographable as the moment itself, the phone case being the most meta of objects. Any street style album wrapping up each season will feature the phone's second skin, even if secondary to the outfit or promoted accessory, as the greatest resource for defining styles and trends in each market helps to share "the case" as a cultural universal.

The front row's fashion gatekeepers are always seen clutching the latest iPhone-release as an industry devoted to Apple. Designers reacted to the barrage of releases from iPhone with the 7, 8 and X as VMAN rounds up the most photographable cases for the New Year.
