In 2004, the iPod had become the ubiquitous gadget to have. You went photo, your mom went pink mini and even your dog does not go on a walk without his shuffle wrapped around his neck. So how do you set yourself apart from the rest of the trendy pack? Pick a cover that will stress your individual style. The Purse Blog hence compiled a totally stylicious roundup of six ostentatious iPod cases for ya.
Kate Spade’s Mini iPod case will make all you preppy girls salivate heavily over its gorgeous custom-dyed leather, luxe brass accents and convenient strap, making it easy to grab on the go. For those who don’t dig red as much, behold! The mini leather comes in 5 different fresh color combos that will surely capture your style. For $55 at KateSpade.com.
Held in conservative yet handsome black, Dior Homme’s iPod Mini case conceals your player in a sexy polished leather sleeve and comes with a belt loop in the back and a filigree 51 inch silver metal chain. Although designed for men, this timeless design will look good on any lady, too. For $295 at eLuxury.com.
Dior’s iconic iPod case is a chic marriage of technology and design. In structured leather with a glossy, line-etched finish. This larger version holds Apple’s 40/60GB models, allowing the cord to pull through one end and securing the case with a double-snap flap at the other end. The case snaps shut creating a cool enclosure so your iPod plays bump- and scrape-free on the move. For $220 at eLuxury.com.
Joining us next in this upper-deck lineup is the sleek Louis Vuitton Nomade. It’s hard to tell that it’s indeed a Louis due to the lack of the LV-plastered canvas, but the smooth, caramel-colored cowhide leather exposes the Nomade as a true Vuitton. The top-opening flap tucks nicely away and keeps your device securely snug inside. The LV Nomade goes for $285 and is suited for full-size ‘Pods.
More contenders in the battle for your favor are the mighty popular Gucci iPod Mini case, which was sold out shortly after its launch last year but has made a strong comeback ever since. The GG-patterned canvas case keeps your mini safely stowed, while a removable strap lets you shoulder your holder or pocket it. Exclusivity has its price, the Gucci mini casing goes for almost $200.
Back in November of last year, Burberry stuck us with their ultrasleek iPod photo case, featuring their signature plaid canvas. We say nifty! Not surprising that this case made style.com’s item of the week. For a pocket change of $195 available at Burberry.
