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.
