SOF Leather Phone Cases Transmit Savoir Faire

It's not often one gets all ooh la la about an iPhone case. But with its super-soft Italian leather and sleek design (and those colors!), it's hard not to feel all the feels when clutching a SOF case from still-newish Silicon Valley-based SOFRANCISCO. Designed by French founder and CEO Charlotte Boedec, the iPhone 6 and 7 cases come in a range of ultra-chic color combos and with complimentary hot-stamped personalized monogram if desired.

In a real-life case of necessity breeds invention, Boedec was compelled to create the first case when she couldn't find one to reflect her style. She "absolutely disapproves" of the classic cold plastic case but still wanted to protect her precious device. Lucky for her (and us), she studied leather material engineering in graduate school in France. The rest? You know, history. // Find the cases at Pascaline Paris (3234 Sacramento St) in Presidio Heights, the European Cobblery (385 State St) in Los Altos and online at sofrancisco.com
