The Good And Bad Of Designer iPhone Cases

Shelling out a bit for a nice iPhone case is a legitimate splurge—that’s something you see everyday and presumably your phone is something you want to take good care of. Of course, when you decide to spend, say, more than $50 on one, we’d expect it to be extremely cute. Pierre Hardy gets an A+ for this unique trompe l’oeil cube design, something we’ve never seen before on an iPhone case. Regretfully, we’re completely puzzled by Sonia Rykiel’s wares—these velour pouches bedazzled with the words “phone bag” or “ibag.” Is it just us, or do they look a bit like mall trash couture? []
