Selfridges had brought out the exclusive limited edition BlackBerry Bold 9780 created by leather-happy designer Bill Amberg. At £1000 a pop, these handsets are part of a set of just 60, with 10 of each of the six colours available. The designs feature leather back plates and cases and have apparently “undergone an intricate moulding process to achieve the unique curved shape”.
Amberg said on the launch “”I am excited to be working with BlackBerry on this exclusive run for Selfridges that celebrates the launch of the new Bold 9780. Quality products like this are crying out for something complementary on a functional and stylistic level, which is both beautiful and unique”.
I think they look very nice indeed. There’s also a video on Youtube on the making of the cases.
