When you’ve just taken the plunge to spend upwards of six hundred dollars on your brand new iPhone, one of the first things that you will likely want to do is find a decent, robust and fairly attractive case to slip onto the device in order to protect it from bumps, scrapes, and other knocks and mishaps.

It’s also likely that the purchased case or protector will cost a fraction of the overall handset cost. That is unless you are the type of person who loves the idea of luxury and wants to introduce this Louis Vuitton case into your life at a staggering cost of $5,500.

It may seem like a seriously staggering amount of money for a case that’s essentially designed to protect a smartphone, and in all honesty, it is. Especially when you consider that the top-end version of the product itself costs nearly seven times the amount of the iPhone that it would actually be protecting, but you can’t put a price on luxury, right?

The luxury fashion brand has introduced a range of new cases for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, all under the Eye-Trunk branding, with prices ranging from $1,180, and rising to the aforementioned $5,500.

Parting with $1,180, or $1,250 will get you an Eye-Trunk case sized for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus respectively, complete with a the standard Louis Vuitton pattern that the company has become famous for over the years. It will also have a nice feeling canvas rear.

Stepping up and pumping $5,500 of your hard earned cash into the company’s coffers will allow you to protect your larger iPhone 7 Plus with an Eye-Trunk case complete with a crocodile leather finish. iPhone 7 owners can get one for $5,050.

All cases come complete with four hard protective corners, as well as a latch in the middle to give the impression of a throwback to the company’s luggage creations which is the inspiration here given that Louis Vuitton started out as a luggage maker.

Let’s be honest here; if you’re the type of iPhone user who likes to flaunt their wealth, and have the fanciest phone in the room, then this is definitely one way of doing that. It’s also an instant way of getting people to talk about the type of person that you are if you think that owning a case that’s up to seven times more expensive than your phone is the right thing to do.
