Decoden Bling : Mini Decorations for Phones & Favorite Things Paperback / softback
by Alice Fisher
Paperback / softback
This title features 20 projects to reinvent phonecases, mirrors, sunglasses and more, in the fashionable Decoden style.
One of the first books on this hot emerging trend which is sweeping the internet.
It is suitable for children aged 10+. Yet another fabulous trend influenced by our friends in Japan (and elsewhere, by now), decoden or dekoden is for all of us who are part magpie, in the sense that we dive for anything that glitters.
The term "deco" is shorthand for "decorated" and "den" is short for denwa, "phone" in Japanese.
But these fancy facades don't stop at just phones. The deco craze has swept portable gaming systems, e-readers and even fingernails.
The Decoden look is over-the-top sparkle and embellishment, and the aim is to be as decadent as possible.
Electronic devices are pretty nondescript on the outside for the most part, so decoden-covered cases serve the dual purpose of protection and self-expression.
