Fashion Meets Technology



After the release of the iPad in April 2010, Apple created a frenzy among consumers; selling 3 million iPads in 80 days. The demand for this sleek computer tablet with its signature sleek Apple design, prompted many designers and fashion houses to introduce accompanying luxe iPad cases. Designer Top Set from top left to right: Burberry $475, Yves Saint Laurent $795, Chanel $1,555, Salvatore Ferragamo $390, Oscar de la Renta $290, Louis Vuitton $390. For those where couture cases are not within the budget, there are some fashionable affordable options available as well. Bottom Set from top left to bottom: Acme Skinny Sleeve $29.99, Incase Neoprene Sleeve Plus $39.95, Hard Candy Bubble Sleeve $49.95, Case Logic Herringbone Case $29.99.

I have a touch phone and it drives me INSANE so I can't imagine having an iPad (which is essentially a computer) 0_0 My phone definitely tests my patience enough... I must just have a shit phone then.

i know it's LV's identity with logo-printed monograms. but i get disgustingly tired with the signs. i wish LV would do something else more daring in the future.

Great post! I probably wouldn't bother with a case if I had an iPad, half the point of it is that it's handy, and not a laptop. But the Chanel is my fave xxx

I want that YSL. I guess I should buy the ipad first though..haha. Have been thinking about buying it but might wait until the next model comes out. Apple always makes it a habit of making the first editions not so good.

I've got the very basic black one as I refused to pay so much more for Apple accessories. But guess what? I still paid over 40$ for it!

I think I might as well go for ones of these, style it up a little! Thank you for sharing!

Kate said...

Oh, I like, I like! I'm a huge Apple fan. Here's how it would go if I took this post to the store with money to spare...

1: Buy iPad. I'm so tempted.
2: Buy YSL case. Beautiful.
3: Wonder why I bought a YSL iPad case before I bought a YSL bag.
4: Buy YSL bag.

ha!

Thanks for your comment. It amazes me to see the attitude that some people dare to have without owning the respect from others.

We as bloggers can do so much but we have to do it with respect.

Hope you have a lovely day. Chili this morning in NY. Hope it is sunny and warm for you on the west coast.
