This $5000 Louis Vuitton iPhone 7 case will make you lose faith in humanity

 
If you think iPhones are overpriced, just wait until you see the latest Louis Vuitton merchandise for the Apple flagship of 2016.

The luxury fashion house premiered a brand new line of cases called "Eye-Trunk" which can make your iPhone look like a leather trunk. Why, you ask? Because the company started off as a luggage designer in the 19th century, and these cases are devised to pay tribute to its origins.

The most "affordable" case of the Eye Trunk line is the traditional Monogram version and its color variations. They cost $1,180 for the smaller iPhone 7 and $1,250 for the larger 7 Plus model. 


However, the obvious jewel of the crown here is the Eye-Trunk in "precious Golden crocodile leather". It has a higher retail price than your handset and kidney combined, respectively selling for $5,050 and $5,500 for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

While I can't claim that I'm at the avant-garde of high fashion, I'll dare to express my personal opinion on the design of these lavish accessories. The back sides of these cases look quite alright (some of my colleagues strongly disagreed), although I do like the classic Monogram style the best. However, we all agreed that the front side looks underwhelming, to say the least.


As these are premium items with more than premium pricetags, they are not available for online orders - potential customers have to call the company for more information. If you have a boatload of cash to spare and are interested in what you see, visit Louis Vuitton's website for more information.

We're in 2017, and companies are still allowed to kill animals only to use their skin.

To some people, social status is above all.

...or how poachers broke into a French zoo and killed a white rhino and stole his horn. This world is f***ed up.

Pretty soon, when Planet X or the Aliens or Quantum robots or whatever arrives, they're probably going to kill us all and use us for our skins. That's life. So enjoy grazing this Earth of barbaric human natures, and flawed systems of endless corporate greed. One day soon we may have the final privilege to meet our overlords. The sad thing is, when they come, it will be hard to blame them for sending us back to the realm of spirits...

Don't let my GreenMan ID fool you, I'm no environmentalist or animal right activist... But... When I wonder what it'd be like if someone try to kill me merely and solely for my skin, everything becomes crystal clear... So... If I can't understand pain and suffering of someone, I just put myself in their shoes for a moment... Like they say; with age comes wisdom...! This, gentlemen, is the perfect strategy to kill the racist, sadist and bully inside yourself... The beast within... Oh well, G'Day!

Everytime I kill an insect for bothering me, or simply just for existing, I become saddened - oh boy look at me...I'm so sensitive lol.

It is weird to me that anyone would actively be against a healthy environment or treating animals well. I'm not saying you are, I just can't recall ever coming across someone who was opposed to the idea of taking care of the planet.

Or, they just like the case and dropping 5 grand doesn't mean much of anything to them.

"Rich people are one of the worst people on the face of humanity" English that awful deserves a medal! Oh.....and generalizing people because they have more money than you is retarded.

Seriously? Rich people are bad because they have money? Lot of them support in good causes. How do you think some of these non-profit organization get their big funds?

I'd have to say that even the ones who don't use their money to support good causes aren't bad either. Nobody is entitled to do good with their money just because they have it. You earn it, spend it on whatever you like. Sure, it'd be nice to see more wealthy people contributing to good causes...but eh, what they do with their money is their own business.

36. TerryTerius unregistered

I'm not sure I can 100% agree with that. Especially since many wealthy people are using their money to extract even more wealth from the less well-off. I'm not a Christian, but there's a reason greed is looked at as the worst sin by so many people and the Bible warns about worshipping material wealth and goods. To be frank, I think we have to answer a fundamental question as a species. Are we just a bunch of individuals on this rock in space who should put ourselves first and foremost, or are do we have a moral responsibility to help one another and uplift everyone? To be frank, the implications of the former make me extremely uncomfortable.
