Although LA brand Bandolier offers great statement carriers for your smart phone, minimalist style stars may be looking for something a bit more simplified. To the rescue is Building Block, one of our Racked Young Gun 2013 semi-finalists known for merging luxury and utility. The local accessory label's design duo Kimberly and Nancy Wu has whipped up a super-stylish iPhone and travel sling that features smooth black leather and a rubber shoulder strap. In addition to holding your phone, the carrier also hooks up a single card holder. Bonus: it's only $90.
