Samsung and Dana Lorenz Partner to Create Awful-Looking Accessories for Galaxy Gear and Galaxy Note 3

Galaxy gear

Right when you think you have seen it all, Samsung partners with a random “fashion designer” and shows off some of the most interesting accessories for the Galaxy Gear and Galaxy Note 3 we have ever seen. From what we can see in the pictures posted, there appears to be some custom-bedazzled wrist straps for the watch and a bedazzled-leather case for the Note 3. Yes, the way I view anything artsy is my own opinion, and I am sure others might like these looks, but they just don’t resonate very well with me. 

There are gold metallic studs everywhere, and even a gold chain to allow the Galaxy Note 3 to dangle ever-so carelessly from  your body. While I feel that these accessories are somewhat uninspired and play off of the long-dead gaudy punk trend, these look tacky and gross. On the other hand, if you have to put studs on a smartwatch for a girl to want to wear it, then so be it.

You can expect these accessories to launch sometime this month, alongside the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

    She’s a high fashion jewelry designer. Not my cup of tea, either….but we’re not their target audience.

  • Arameth

    one bump with that fugly watch band and the note screen is toast.

  • AndySamberg

    I’d Throw it on the ground.

  • Wtf

    Apparently, when her over sized snuggie with Jean Jacket arms didn’t catch on, she decided to create even uglier cell phone accessories. Calling her a fashion designer is like calling anyone with a disposable camera a photographer.

    • JoshGroff

      People still use disposable cameras? I thought all of them were cell phone photographers now?

    • NexusMan

      She’s a successful and esteemed JEWELRY Designer.

  • TripleIonia

    Can I get this at Hot Topic?

  • Blerb

    The cutout on top means they expect you to leave it in the case while you talk on it. The studs will literally stab your face.

  • Keith0606

    no words can describe how ugly that thing is, do they really think it’s going to make them money, how can they be so blind.

  • tomn1ce

    Samsung obviously have not seen the Moto X commercial.

    • EC8CH

      At first I thought that commercial was a little too over the top….

      Truth is stranger than fiction.

      • Reginald Jefferson

        Strange that you got downvotes.

        • jamdev12

          Is even stranger that you are talking about down votes when around here down votes are a norm. Oh wait… Am I talking about .? Darn you got me.

        • EC8CH

          Haters… you know what their gonna do.

          • Jag

            Do they love?

      • Al-Burrit0

        Yea same here. It looks like Samsung just likes to be in the conversation, good and bad.



  • jnt

    I love some of their products, but Samsung makes some choices at times that make me think they’ll be the Carl’s Jr in our Idiocracy future…

    • Brandon Golway

      Brawndo! I has what plants crave!

  • HarleyGuy72

    Flava Flave could were the Note 3 around his neck instead of a clock now!!!

    Edit: just saw Ben’s post…oh well.

  • Charlie Val

  • Justin W

    • Accecorception. Mind, blown.

      • thatguywithoutanaccount

        too lazy to make an image of it… but I imagine the xzibit meme for this 😛
