The Winning iPhone 4G Cover


To understand mass hysteria, one only needs to search for iPhone accessories.  Everyone’s jumped on the bandwagon, including the high-end dealers.  Most of the fancy lot, like Vuitton or Gucci, offer flat, snug-fitting slip cases where the entire device must be removed for use.

Enter Valextra, aka the Italian Hermes.  They’ve produced a “Star Trek communicator” in their signature leather with black piping.  This one is $320 and there are others, as well.  Barney’s New York has the rights in the U.S. otherwise you need to waltz into one of their showrooms in Italy, drat the luck!

You knew it would happen.  The iPad cover from Rodeo Drive.  Everyone’s jumped on the bandwagon with their offerings.  Some are quite nice, some are quite expensive.  It’s no surprise that Hermes would find a way to produce the costliest calfskin cover on the market, coming in at $1,400.  Meanwhile, Coach, of all places, seems to have turned out the nicest zip-around case with a briefcase-style handle for the bargain price of $198.  Enjoy.
