Louis Vuitton Launches iPad Cases
Louis Vuitton is coming out with the ultimate luxurious accessory for Apple's much-loved new iPad – cases covered in the famed French fashion house's signature canvas. The sleek, simple sleeve-style sheath will be available in both Vuitton's classic monogram pattern and the more modern Damier Graphite checkerboard. Priced at about $365 apiece and set to be available in 2011, the cases are only a little less expensive than the iPad itself, but certainly lend it a sizable dose of style. And they're still cheaper then the handstitched leather versions my colleague Rigel Celeste wrote about last month. As British GQ notes, the Vuitton cases lend the device the "feel of a lightweight, ultra-portable attaché case - appropriate given that it is superseding your offline files and folders, [and] also gives your iPad some much-needed protection."
