A cigarette case for the iPod

Borrowing from 1920s style

Popgadget

Crave has a long-standing tradition of ranting against useless or ugly " special editions ," but rarely have we seen one just for a product's case. But when you're a company like WANT Les Essentiels De La Vi, we suppose, you can pretty much do whatever you want.

The international purveyor of luxury goods has proven that point with its limited-edition "Narita" iPod case, a handcrafted work of Italian leather that Popgadgets says weighs more than the media player itself. Never mind that it's not exactly the most practical item, as you need to open it to get access to the iPod, clamshell-style. Another blog said it was designed like a "chic vintage cigarette case" emulating 1920s luxury. Translation: not cheap ($180).

If you have more than one iPod, however, you'll have to look elsewhere to store them in appropriate style. For that, you may need a Fendi iPod trunk .
