Fashion designer Christian Cowan and Google have partnered to celebrate the release of the Really Blue Google Pixel smartphones in the UK by creating an exclusive pair of “Really Blue” jeans. Aside from the Really Blue color, the jeans feature pockets tailored specifically to accommodate Google’s latest flagship duo.
The Google Pixel and the Pixel XL have been released in three color options, Quite Black, Very Silver, and Really Blue, with the latter option being exclusive to the United States up until recently. Nevertheless, the Really Blue color variant was launched in the UK last week through EE, and to commemorate the event, the Mountain View tech giant approached the celebrity designer to create a pair of Really Blue jeans. "It’s awesome to be working with Google on this project," said the UK-based designer, adding that Really Blue is a unique color whose concept "really appealed" to him. The jeans borrow the same vibrant blue tone used by the Google Pixel smartphones and come with a custom-sized pocket designed to accommodate one of the Google Pixel phones, as well as a couple of different designs flaunting ruffles and glittery stars. Although the Really Blue jeans are available for purchase, prospective customers won’t be able to simply place an order online and wait for the shipment to arrive. Instead, they are available for custom orders and can be purchased upon appointment. Having said that, the jeans don’t have a conventional price tag, and prices will be quoted during a fitting session. Given how there are two Google Pixel variants with different dimensions, the pocket size of the Really Blue jeans will likely be determined during fitting.
The Google Pixel houses a 5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display in a body measuring 143.8 x 69.5 x 8.5mm, whereas the Google Pixel XL accommodates a 5.5-inch panel with a higher resolution of 2560 x 1440, wrapped in a 154.7 x 75.7 x 8.5mm body. Otherwise, they are identical in nearly every aspect and perform equally well. In the UK, the Really Blue Google Pixel and the Google Pixel XL are available through EE with 32 GB of internal memory alongside an EE 4GEE plan starting at £40.99 and £45.99 per month, respectively.
