Purse keeps cellphone close at hand


What it is: A tiny jacket in Chinese-inspired fabrics with a strap that’s long enough to sling across your front.

When you might use it: When you can’t detach from your cellphone but you don’t want to carry a big purse.

How it works: The opening of the “jacket” is wide enough for most cellphones, but there’s also a pocket on the back to allow easy access to a phone, keys or money.
