Why Louis Vuitton’s new iPhone case costs $5000

Louis Vuitton says the cases are “more than a protective cover.” Instead, the case “establishes itself as the ultimate fashionable accessory of the season.”

For $5,000, your iPhone can wear the latest fashions.

Luxury fashion house Louis Vuitton has debuted a new product called the Eye-Trunk, a leather iPhone 7 case designed to pay tribute to the company’s origins as a trunk designer.

But outfitting your phone in couture will cost you: The lowest-end case costs more than $1,100, while the priciest version will set you back well over $5,000.

Here’s what they look like.
