Nothing screams luxury like a crocodile-skin case. This one, by British jewelry and accessories designer Alexander Amosu, comes in a variety of custom colors. They’ll even personalize it by adding your name, initials or logo.
The Mondriaan Case by Fresh Fiber not only looks great—it also provides your phone with an incredible amount of protection. The 3D design includes a slot for your credit cards and ID, and has a lock pin to ensure they’ll never fall out.

Miansai might be best known for its signature nautical and military-themed men’s bracelets, but they’ve also come out with a bad-ass iPhone cover. Each 14K gold case is made-to-order and individually numbered and engraved. It comes in both rose and yellow gold (pictured) in either a matte or polished finish.

If a flashy phone case isn’t your style, check out this hand-dyed, hand-stitched leather sleeve by Dutch brand Mujjo. And while you’re at it, pick up a pair of their touch-screen friendly gloves—a winter staple of tech nerds everywhere.
There are tough, indestrucatable iPhone cases… and then there’s the ExoVault. The Brooklyn-based manufacturer uses stainless steel screws to combine Brazilian ironwood with brass, aluminum or aerospace grade titanium (your choice). These babies aren’t even on the market yet, but you can pre-order yours on their website.
