Longer iPhone gives London jewellery designer first mover advantage.

Jewellery designer Lara Bohinc has teamed up with Slovenian luxury production house CalypsoCrystal to create a range of cases for the new iPhone 5.

London-based Lara Bohinc has created an ever-expanding luxury goods empire that now includes jewellery, bags and sunglasses.


She was awarded an MBE this year as well as joining the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 as a Tresor Paris Trendsetter.

The iPhone 5 cases join a range of designs for the iPhone 4, but are a little longer, in line with the extra length of the latest Apple gadget.

Three designs have been announced in advance of the launch of the iPhone 5 in the UK, which is expected next month. Rainbow is made of glossy leather with silver finishing; Sunrise is made from black leather with a silver ring; and Rainbow Dream is a deep red cabrio version.

Retail price is expected to be around £120.
