Dior designs a frock for the iPhone

Designer still caters to others just weeks after releasing its own handset.

New iPhoneaccessories seem to come out daily, if not hourly, but the timing of this particular case seems a bit odd because it's made by Christian Dior. The venerable design house unveiled its own mobile handset only weeks ago, making a fair splash with a high-end model that will go for an estimated $26,000.

That type of fearless (read: insane) pricing probably helps explain why this rather plain-looking pouch--pardon us, the "Dior Homme iPhone Holder"--is listed at $450, according to Luxurylaunches. It's a good thing that the iPhone needs only one case, unlike the "My Dior" handset and its "Mini-Me" companion.
