Hogtown

This week’s iPhone-case roundup includes a great mix of protective accessories, including some TV-inspired fashion, and one model in which our neighbors to the north show off all their…studs.

Aritzia

The La Notte (iPhone 5; $20) is made from silicone for a soft feel and bouncy structure that keeps your handset safe from the vagaries of everyday life.

The case features a custom-designed owl graphic at the back, and provides the appropriate cutouts for accessing all your iPhone’s buttons, cameras, and ports while the case is on.

Cartolina

The Ciao (iPhone 4, 4S, and 5; $35) is made from tough polycarbonate to offer excellent protection from bumps and scratches.

It features a vintage print of the word “Ciao” reproduced on the back and the sides.

ExoVault

The Exo 17 (iPhone 5; $120 to $140) offers a minimalist approach to hardcode protection thanks to an all-aluminium construction that offers additional protection for your handset’s sides and corners.

The case comes in silver aluminium, brass, or black aluminium.

Felony Case

The Gold Studs (iPhone 5; $60) is made from TPU silicone and features a grid of gold studs.

If gold isn’t your thing, this Toronto-based artisan also sells dozens of other case models that feature studs and frames of many different colors.

Griffin Technology

The Pyragrid (iPhone 5; $25) features a motif inspired by ancient Egyptian culture and designed by Project Runway start Amanda Valentine.

The case is printed with UV-cured ink on Griffin’s Reveal hardshell case, which offers excellent everyday protection.

iSkin

The ProTouch Titan (iPhone 5; $25) is a high-impact screen film whose multi-layered construction offers excellent protection from scratches and harder-than-usual impacts.

The film, which features an easy, bubble-free installation, also offers a superior viewing experience and ensures full access to your handset’s touchscreen functionality.

Sneaker St.

The Champ X2 (iPhone 4, 4S, and 5; 35) is an upcoming slim-fit case that provides excellent protection and features a special anti-glare camera ring to help you take better pictures.

According to the manufacturer, the case will be available on August 24.

Speck

The CandyShell Flip (iPhone 5; $35) is made from a shock-absorbing soft inner shell combined with a hard outer shell. The latter’s glossy finish helps your phone slide in and out of your pocket with ease.

Available in nearly a dozen different color combination, the case also features a bottom panel that flips away for easy docking without having to completely remove the CandyShell from your iPhone.
