This charming accessory will set you back 225,000 rubles. But—we promise—it’s worth every kopeck.
Bearing the noble visage of President-Elect Donald Trump, this custom iPhone 7 was rushed into the marketplace by Moscow marketing venture Caviar shortly after the November election. Part of Caviar’s so-called Supremo collection, which is dedicated to men the company deems to be great, it’s gold-plated (a propos) and decorated with the emblem of the United States. It also prominently features Trump’s campaign slogan: ‘Make America Great Again.’ It’s nice that the Russians are so concerned with the re-ascendancy of American socio-political ideals.
This isn’t the only politically-minded designer phone Caviar has come up with to cash in on, either. In 2014, they got a little press for their Vladdy Putin model. Imagine Putin’s KGB-strongman stare emblazoned on your iPhone. Might make you worry about who’s listening in on your conversations. The original Putin model became diversified into several; the 16 inset-diamond Diamante edition is a favorite. There’s also the Putin Damascus, which apparently hails the Russian leader’s circumspect wisdom in matters of international relations.
As of now, there is only one Trump model; that might change as quickly as opportunities for new designs arise, and Caviar is able to react. For now, $3K gets you one of these little gems; $3,500 if you want max gigs.
