The Bella Fino Edition has a slim design that adds just 0.28 inches to either side of the case, and it attaches to the ‌iPhone‌ though an interior snap-on case that attaches to the leather of the Bella Fino through 3M adhesive.

There are several card slots inside to hold six to eight credit and debit cards, and there's also a larger pocket that can hold cash. An elastic strap holds the case closed when the ‌iPhone‌ isn't in use, and there's a quick access window for holding a driver's license or ID card.

For all of the different case variations for each ‌iPhone‌, there's an appropriately sized camera cutout that leaves the camera operational, plus wireless charging is supported. The Bella Fino Edition comes in multiple colors, including chocolate and blue, black and plum, black and gray, whiskey and blue, and whiskey and green.

Priced at $99.95, the Lowry Cuff Edition comes in multiple colors and features either silver or black lugs to match the various Apple Watch models that are available, plus it has UV-resistant stitching, brass hardware, and rivet reinforcement.
