With all the focus being on designer iPad cases, the iPod is feeling a wee bit lonely me thinks. Major brands like Louis Vuitton and Gucci are giving the iPad love and now Dolce & Gabbana wants to give loving to the ever popular iPod.

But Dolce & Gabbana does not just want to get in on the action, they want to make an iPod case that is much more of a snazzy statement piece that just so happens to hold an iPod as well. I’m not going to lie when I say that this piece truly confuses me. And here is why…


Can you imagine carrying your music player in a $725 pouch?

With Apple releasing so many products, I have to think hard before confusing the iPhone with the iPad with the iPod with the iMac. I kept thinking this was a really upscale phone pouch. But Dolce & Gabbana wants to market this as a iPod pouch. So back to why I am confused. If this pouch holds nothing else, that is one expensive and ornate case simply meant to carry your music player around.

I really wish there were dimensions for us to check out. That way we could know if the iPhone would fit (which I think makes much more sense), along with keys, and a lipstick. If that were the case, this pouch may work. But I feel like this is meant to be a small case, and if it is too small it won’t do much of anything for us. The case looks like a coin pouch mixed with an iPod holder which is then attached to a long ornate chain shoulder strap. I understand what Dolce & Gabbana was trying to do with this case, but it just isn’t feasible. Buy via Luisa via Roma for $725.

    omg hahahah it’s cute

    mmm $725 for an iPod is ridiculous!! i even think realllly hard to buy a $350 LV iPad case. and that is by comparing the price of the gadget itself compare to the case

  • Rebecca

    I don’t even like the look of it, let alone the price.

  • 19yearslater

    I have to say again- this reminds me of cases Kohls used to sell for the iPod mini. They were on a long chain and only large enough to hold the music player. This doesn’t seem upscale or practical on any level.

    Awful

    What I don’t understand is why they made the bag look that way. What is that shape of leather sticking out of the coin purse it looks like a planes back side. Is it that way so you can touch the IPod inside I don’t know it looks silly not to mention the price is insane. Apple upgrades its products so quickly why would you spend so much for one bag that possibly only holds that specific object. Like you said if it could hold a phone, lipstick etc it would be much different, but then it wouldn’t be a niche bag.

    They could’ve made it more stylish! I think it’s kind of blah.

  • Nazneen

    i think the chain is a bit too much. kinda tacky. But cute case anyway! :)

  • Moonchild

    It’s pretty, but seems kind of impractical for an iPhone. It’s also way too expensive.

  • Beth S.

    I think it is BEAUTIFUL! And if it were $125, I’d consider it…

  • mrsmere66

    I agree with Beth S. I like it, I just wouldn’t spend that much money on it. If someone were to give it to me as a gift, however, I’d be toting that thing every day with my $150 iPod tucked inside.

    luisa via roma has great products!! loving so much the nicholaas kirkwood shoes for rodarte!!

  • pink2plum

    cute, but no.

  • MAX

    OMG i would love to but considering Ipod is around $300 I can but 2-3 ipods to use in the future when the old one is broken or there is new model come out.

  • Crystal

    It’s like a clutch with a dedicated iPhone pocket… as a technophobe, I quite like this intersection between functionality and fashion! The Classic iPod and iPhone are about the same size, so this seems like it could work for a night out if all you’re carrying is your phone, lipstick, keys, and a credit card.

  • MizzJ

    Ohh yeah, I’d forgotten about the iPod! I like the chain strap on this pouch, but other than that, the whole idea is ridiculous.

    I honestly think its creative and cute. It would be great on a night out when I’m too excited to hold on to anything. But I don’t get that excited anymore. (sad but true) So I would need something that can do more than an Ipod and a coin purse.

  • Anabelle

    OMG Gotta have it, but where do I find one?

  • Naggy

    I think it’s very pretty with that shape, the chain strap, and other design aspects. (ipad)

    • Elizabeth

      Ps. It’s avaliable at Saks. Well it was anyways 8 months ago haha

  • creighbaby

    sadly, this is just a waste of money. (ipad)

  • sneezz

    Ummm NO. (iPad).

  • Elizabeth

    I love this pouch. And it’s not for an iPod it’s for an iPhone and it does fit. I actually own it. Don’t know why you thought they’d make a case that didn’t even fit the device :S
