[The Moto X Pure Edition - Designed By Jonathan Adler]

When I hear Jonathan Adler, I think of home decor, beautiful patterns and deep rich colors. So, when I found out he collaborated with Motorola to design their new limited edition Moto X Pure Edition cell phones, I was immediately intrigued! Upon seeing the 3 beautiful designs, I was not disappointed. The colors were perfect to be complemented by any outfit and the designs were so modern and chic that it would make them the ultimate conversation piece. Having my hair color inspired by Pantone's color of the year (thank you Guy!), I started noticing these colors everywhere. Though the hues aren't quite right on these two colors to quite say they are Pantone's color of the year, Serenity and Rose Quartz, you can see that some hue of pink and blue will be very popular this year. 

Seeing these designs, I felt compelled to style two different looks that is inspired by the unique print and overall design of these new cell phones. When it comes to aesthetics, I believe it encompasses all aspects of art, whether it's fashion, home decor, or in this case, a cell phone design. 

What elements of the cell phone inspired me to create this next look are the clean lines and deep dark blue color. I loved the print of the magenta case so I used that as inspiration for my grid on grid pattern outfit. I used the dark-wash denim color of the other case to tie in the look with the denim jacket. When it comes to print mixing, I believe in sticking with either the same print or sticking to similar shapes. For example, stick to grid patterns if your items have grid on them but the grid pattern doesn't necessarily have to be exactly the same. It can vary in width, height, thickness, etc. I wanted to pair it with this white boxy purse to emulate the sleek cell phone. Did I succeed? 

What I'm Wearing:

[Ribbon: Michael's]

[Top: Living Doll (old)]

[Bottom: JYJZ (old)]

[Denim Jacket: Borrowed]

[Purse: Missguided (old)]

[Socks: Korea]

[Boots: Jeffrey Campbell x Solestruck]

What inspired me for this next look is the creativity behind this unique design created by Jonathan Adler for this Motorola cell phone. I love when a designer creates their own pattern because it makes it uniquely theirs and no one else will own that print. I love seeing these types of influences not only in home decor and fashion, but also now, technology. Because who knew technology can look chic also? What is more is that I can appreciate a cell phone that does not share the same plain old exterior of a typical cell phone. Similarly, my good friend photographer extraordinaire, Johnson Le created these adorable hand drawings inspired by my current favorite lazy outfit by So So Happy. What drew me to Johnson (pun intended ;)) is the fact that he used very moody lighting mixed with unique illustrations. He created something unique to his own brand. I appreciate artists like this. 

Back to the outfit, the pink is derived from the magenta we saw in the previous design but the element of individuality that I believe all of these new Moto X Pure Edition cell phones emulates remains true for all designs. Added bonus is the fact my hair color matches the blue in these designs.

I hope y'all enjoyed these looks I put together for you. What I love most about these new cell phones is that it mixes influences from all areas of lifestyle and art. We use our cell phones daily to be inspired, to stay focused, to connect with others, and to also set ourselves apart. In a world where cell phones are seen as such an essential element in our lives, why not choose one that is unique and incorporates influences from all aspects of lifestyle and art in its design? Stay different, friends.
