Blackberry or iPhone? Vlad and I are iPhone people, though every friend of ours who owns a Blackberry will never stop raving about their “Crackberry” obsession after posting their BBM on every social network they belong to. Yet, we have not converted. Our iPhones load our email quickly, show our websites perfectly, and offer so many amazing games and apps that we will never be bored.

The luxury market quickly took a hold of people’s inherent mobile phone fixation to produce leather cases to cover our precious devices. Thus far I have opted for a plastic protective case, but after seeing some of the leather cases, I feel myself needing a change.

So here we have the battle of the Luxury iPhone cases. I picked four of my favorite options, including one from Nancy Gonzalez, Balenciaga, Hermes, and Louis Vuitton. All come from well-established brands and all offer a different aesthetic. There is the exotic skin with Nancy Gonzalez, the Balenciaga hardware and tassle touches, luxury meets chic with Hermes, and of course you can opt for Monogram Louis Vuitton (they also have Damier and Taiga leather).

Which luxury iPhone case would you choose? If we didn’t cover your favorite, tell us your pick in the comment section below.

    My all time favorite to date is the LIlly Pulitzer covers! They hug my phone perfectly, never stretch out, fun colors, feels good in my hand, and when I drop it it still as good as gold. I have a drawer of about 25 cases, the Lilly wins every time.

  • Constance

    Well I don’t have an iPhone, but if I did I would choose the Louis Vuitton case. Well I love all things designer, so sue me! lol Although I’m not familiar with this designer, my second choice would be the Nancy Gonzalez Croc case. Just because it’s coo beans! :)

  • ShopAroundTours

    I love my LV red epi case, which I use for my iPod touch. I wish I could get one just like it to fit my Blackberry.

  • I have a Blackberry (Verizon iPhone, I’m still waiting for you…), but if I had an iPhone and I wanted a crazy case, I’d go for the Nancy Gonzalez in a different color. I’ve seen a great hot pink one, and also one in a really pretty pearlized cream color.

  • swati

    Balenciaga looks fun and gives the phone a distinct personality … My vote for it ….. i would usually opt for classic over edgy but i am not liking the colour of the exotic …. if its just the picture and the colour is deeper and sharper with a bit of glossy finish, i would go for the exotic ….. this particular Hermes i don’t like and i run in the opposite direction whenever i see a LV monogram …
    personally, i use a normal leather case for my phone … it looks smart and doesn’t cost a bomb :)

  • bisbee

    I’m currently using a Lilly Pulitzer case – had an LV case for my 1st gen iPhone, but it didn’t fit my 3GS! Love the Balenciaga!

  • Brandon

    I have a Burberry iPhone case for mine and I <3 it :)

  • kl

    nancy others are nice lv is not leather

  • Rompecorazones

    1st choice: Nancy Gonzales
    Runner up: Hermes

    The others look cheap and/or fake.

  • PhotoGirl

    Well, I’ve got an android (which I love) and not an iPhone, but I love the Balenciaga and, of course, the Hermes cases.

  • Chris

    I actually picked Hermes not because it’s H (though I love:) but because it’s perferated, it might not matter in reality, but I keep thinking I don’t want my phone to overheat, haha!

  • Stylista

    I don’t have an iPhone, but I’ll vote anyway!


  • 19yearslater

    I like the Balenciaga because it looks like a tiny phone-shaped version of one of their bags. I think that’s funny, and it’s still a nice-looking case.

  • Julie G

    I love the Hermes one, but I use a Kate Spade iphone case. It’s white and black polka dot and adorable! I’ve gone thru many iphone cases, but it is definitely my favorite.

  • Graciella

    Rick Owens! I don’t own an Iphone or Blackberry (and never will – I’m not into technology), but if I had one I’d wrap it in one of Rick’s simple black leather cases

  • NancyH

    IPHONEs ARE THE *fxxxing* BEST,
    DEAL WITH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i’d go for LV, even if balenciaga looks pretty and hermes too but mabye not the colours

  • anya

    Hi everyone,

    I am a designer for luxury iPhone cases. If anyone is looking for anything completely unique, different, and one-of-a-kind, check out my handcrafted embellished statement iPhone cases at http://www.ElegantlyUntamed.com

    Oh, and if I had to pick from the above four, I would have to go with edgy Balenciaga!

    Happy iPhone case shopping :)

  • Jessica

    All of it are ugly. Now if it’s Chanel then it be different story. Anyway I don’t even like this kind of case on my iphone. I like mine with cover.

  • Thistle

    What about Mulberry? They have 2 awesome iPhone messengers and an iPhone cover! (Plus a Blackberry cover.) I love the Bayswater Mini Messenger for the iPhone in Grape!

  • mrsjones

    i don’t have an iPhone too but i think Fendi rubber case or Jack Spade are much better options because you don’t have to slip it in or out.

  • ckc57tbird

    My iPhone 4 case is a beautiful british tan leather by Sena- Very well made-
    You dont have to take it out of the case to use it and the phone is very protected-

  • Paris_Tokyo26

    NancyH I totally agree. It doesn’t get any better than the iPhone! But I would pick the LV.

  • LV-nowwhat

    I have an Ipad LV cover, so I would get LV phone cover too.

  • AbbytheBT

    Have both Crackberry(for work) & iPhone4g for personal and love cases for both fun & protection.
    But because I need to have them out so much, I don’t want the screens covered if sitting on my desk.

    For practicality with the iPhone, I put the Zagg for the screen on right after purchase, and have just a simple silicon grip case.

    BUT, for more protection, the iPhone fits perfectly in my small LV vernis “greene” bag from the “80s.

  • Maggie

    I like the LV one! (ipad)

  • Naggy

    The idea of recycled classic patterns just to fit a small device is annoying. (ipad)

  • Shalon

    I like them all except for LV. People would just assume its a fake. (ipad)

  • creighbaby

    hands down, Nancy Gonzalez. Hermes is nice, but NG is nicer. (ipad)

  • Julia

    i like them all, but i’d much rather be able to whip out my phone and answer it with one hand, instead of dealing with the hassle of removing it from an extra case. (ipad)

  • sneezz

    ^I agree (iPad).

  • Nikki_B

    I wish they would create new cases for phones other the the iphone and make them to where you can wear on a belt. (ipad).

  • helen

    No iphone here, but I would like a pink one if they had it. (ipad)

  • Jen

    As much as I like the Hermes one, I think I have to go with Balenciaga on this one. (ipad)

  • Cathy Fitz

    Searching Balenciaga iPhone case after seeing one on the Forum, and came back to the Blog! Obviously, I’m interested in that Balenciaga. Why can’t I find any? boo-hoo (ipad)

  • Joyce

    These are pretty indeed, but I’d prefer one that had the technology to boost my battery life personally rather than just looking pretty!

  • edoardo

    I lvoe the Prada Saffiano Red one for 95 euros, that is the cover I had and it’s great!!


  • ChrisH

    Prefer my EDGE Design Aktiv case
