PERTH, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--We all have it, we all use it, and it’s the one accessory that we can’t live without: the USB charging cable. Then why has an accessory relied on by billions remained so dull and uninspiring for years? Our smartphones are a style statement — unlike the bland cables they ship with. PlusUs today introduces LifeStar™ — an entirely new looking USB cable — like no other — an accessory reimagined by fashion to keep your favorite devices charged in style.
The Fall 2014 collection evokes 7 vivid styles to suit urban to formal looks. The range is dressed in PU leathers and denim, handcrafted in braided and stitched looks — with matching aluminum connectors. To create the world’s premium cable, PlusUs engaged with a family-owned factory specializing in leather handcrafting going back three generations. LifeStar’s qualities are more than just skin deep, though. The durable double-stitched outer layer also guards the inner cable from the epidemic of fraying standard cables and delivers a tangle-free experience.
“Cables are an unloved accessory that we have to live with. So we set the challenge to reimagine a cable that we want to live with,” said Fays Sekkouah, Co-Founder of PlusUs.
