Hermes, the French luxury luggage company, has created an Apple iPhone 12 and 12 Pro protective case just days after announcing the release of its collaboration with the Apple AirTag.
The “Fauve”-hued Fawn Barenia calfskin leather iPhone case, with its Bolduc design, stands as the absolute word in luxury, or at least for bringing a sumptuous touch to Apple’s newest smartphone. The pattern is supposed to resemble the ribbon that winds around the brand’s signature orange boxes and features a hot stamping of Hermes’ namesake and the horse-drawn cart insignia.
The sleek item is also made up of two elements, with a thicker panel sewn onto the base with white thread, creating a clean and elegant contrast to the brown-toned casing. All the customary cut-outs and bumps have been added for easy access to the charging port and volume controls. In addition, Hermes has also lined the case in genuine leather before branding it with its “Made in France” declaration.
According to Hermes, the case is not just for show; it is also protective since it has been put through rigorous testing. It is also compatible with Qi-certified induction chargers and other MagSafe accessories, and it perfectly snaps into place mainly due to a slew of magnets packed in the body of the case.
In a similar story, Hermes has also announced its own edition of the Apple Airtag. It is sold at $600 and comes in three different styles: a bag charm, a baggage tag, and a key ring, all made of Barenia leather with complementary saddle stitching. The AirTag combines Hermes’ superlative leather-making talents with Apple’s cutting-edge technology to provide a (stylish) tangible alternative to Apple’s Find My feature. If you are both an Apple and Hermes lover, you won’t find anything better than these two products combined!
