What's the best way to say that you're carrying around a top of the line $829 iPad? By carrying around a case that's worth more than the iPad itself!
Yves Saint Laurent will release a $795 black leather case later this month, Burberry has a $450 version while Louis Vuitton offers a $336 version of its classic design. You can carry a Gucci case for $290 or one one from Salvatore Ferragamo in calfskin leather for $390.
But the cream of the iPad cases crops is the $1,555 quilted black leather Chanel hitting stores this Fall, which is double the actual iPad price itself. "I think it's a great idea," said Chanel shopper Molly Robb. "The price tag isn't so bad. If I'm going to spend a couple thousand dollars on a purse, I'd like it to be practical." And that practicality equals a snug fit and zipper down the middle, according to a Chanel salesperson.
For that much money, you're just better off not buying an iPad, really.
