Win a limited edition David Koma designed HTC One Mini smartphone #htckoma
Today HTC and rising star in British fashion, David Koma have announced a special edition HTC One mini – an exclusive new collection of handsets featuring two of David’s unique designs.
Both designs are inspired by the idea of ‘change’ – a theme that both David and HTC are known for in their respective industries.
The special edition collection sees HTC and David Koma working together to explore those ideas of change and innovation in a project that celebrates the power of design to bridge material and format.
Each special edition HTC One mini handset features one of two exclusive designs by David Koma, printed onto the phone’s aluminium back panel.
One of the unique abstract designs is inspired by his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, while the other gives a flavour of what is to come in the Spring/Summer 2014 show, taking place on the 14th September, during London Fashion Week.
Only 10 handsets will be made available, and can be won exclusively through a Twitter competition hosted by @htc_uk from today until the 25th September, using the hashtag #htckoma.
To win, all you have to do is submit your own artwork – of any material or form you fancy – inspired by David’s designs, and final winners will be chosen by David himself.
Speaking about the partnership, David Koma said: “The designs I’ve created for this special edition of the HTC One mini mirror the transition in style from my previous season’s collection to my upcoming one which will be presented during London Fashion Week. Pushing boundaries and exploring new techniques play a huge part in how I bring a collection together – taking part in this project has been a very exciting experience for me and an opportunity to find inspiration from working with new materials.”
The HTC One mini packs the same features and design of its the HTC One stablemate, with a slimmer build and compact 4.3-inch display.
It is equipped with an Ultrapixel camera, which delivers incredible high performance in low light, making it perfect for taking catwalk pictures at Fashion Week.
It also features an automatically updating Blinkfeed home screen for all the latest gossip and Facebook updates, and dual frontal stereo speakers, encased within a stylish aluminium unibody.
