Designer Fashions for your iPod.
The iPod has become a cultural phenomenon. Not since the original Nintendo gaming system has the general public gone so utterly mad over a high-tech consumer gadget. You see them everywhere you go…..on the subway…..in the schoolyard…..on the runway. That’s right, my friends. High end fashion design houses like Louis Vuitton and Gucci have launched a line of iPod cases that are sure to please even the most jaded fashionista.
It should come as little surprise that somebody is designing stylish cases for the most stylish gadget ever created. There are countless iPod cases available on the market, most of which are tacky or ugly or made from yucky rubber-like materials. Frankly, I couldn’t be happier that people with a real understanding of design and fashion are giving fashion-conscious consumers some stylish options.
These cases are fashion must-haves for this year. My personal favorite is designed by Paul Smith. It’s called the Swirl. It reminds me of those psychedelic designs of the late 60’s or early 70’s. Think Mod. The multicolored strips accent the smooth texture leather very nicely, and it has a very snug fit. It is designed for the iPod mini, but it will accommodate both the 4 and 6 Gig models. I love it!
I am also quite keen on the Gucci cases. They are constructed from the classic Gucci monogrammed material, available in beige/ebony with dark brown leather trim. It also comes with a silver Gucci emblem on the front, and a nice carrying strap. The only drawback I see with these cases is the price. At close to 0 USF, these cases cost almost as much as the iPod itself! I will admit, though, that these cases are slick!
For those not interested in spending so much money on a case, Apple has quite a few reasonably priced cases on their website. There is a company called Incase that has a wonderful line of cases for your iPod. They are oh-so-stylish. They look like designer cases, without the designer price. I have a brown and pink leather one on order. It has a wonderful argyle pattern on it, and we all love argyle…..don’t we? I can hardly wait for mine to arrive! Which one do you have?
