Hands up, if your weekly screen time report has shown that you’re spending a lot more time on your phone during this circuit breaker. Yeah, us too.

Between the daze of waking up, telecommuting and trying to get a bit of a routine going, it’s so easy to lounge around at home and let the hours seep away as we scroll through our endless social media feeds, or check in on our newly-downloaded phone games.

Since you’re already using your smartphone as a way of escaping from the necessary doldrums of staying home, lose yourself to these ultra-fashionable apps. Between shopping, playing games and checking out new togs, you’ve got plenty of content here for added distractions.

01 | Drest

This is a fashion fan’s dream video game. Created by former fashion editor Lucy Yeomans, Drest allows players to dress up their virtual avatars in the latest looks straight from the runway. Think of it as playing with your Barbie, except that your Barbie now wears Gucci. Best part? You can get the looks you like directly from Farfetch too, so you won’t get a case of real-world FOMO.

03 | Matches Fashion

Matches Fashion has quickly carved out a niche amongst its online luxury retail peers for its well-curated selection of contemporary luxury brands. That’s not to say that they don’t already carry big-name brands like Versace and Dolce & Gabbana, but their repertoire of labels extends to up-and-coming names such as Khaite, Ludovic de Saint Sernin and The Vampire’s Wife.

06 | Gucci

Like with all things Gucci, you know that you’re always going to have a good time. The brand’s app ticks all the standard boxes when it comes to online shopping and product curation functions, but we also love that it offers so much more. Explore the AR function to virtually try on sunglasses, cook up a meal with Gucci Osteria’s chef Karime Lopez or pass time by playing games at the Gucci Arcade.
