The 80s cell phone case sold at Urban Outfitters is a hilarious homage to the days of feathered bangs and Adidas track suits. The ridiculously clunky phone cases that are far bigger than even the home phones of today are a super retro find. The cases are representative of a certain era, and beloved for their connection to the 80s. As a result, they have been re-introduced to modern society and given a place in hipster's and 80s-loving citizen's homes alike.
You simply slip your iPhone into the large, blocky phone case and it transforms back to the funky 80s. Though the technology of today clashes oddly with the outdated size of the case, it is more that it is a fantastically interesting comparison to reflect upon than an actual useful tool for protecting or enhancing your phone.
