CELINE iPAD CASE
With the on-going craze over the iPad 2, there’s no better time than now to release an exquisite piece of leather goodness to protect your beloved gadget. For Fall-Winter’11, Céline is releasing its take on luxury leather iPad cases – and I must say they are gorgeous! First seen during the brand’s Fall-Winter’11 show, the Céline iPad case is made out of full smooth and high quality leather. From the looks of it, the material resembles that of the Classic Box - namely calf leather exterior with the buttery goodness of lamb in the interior. The detailing on this case seems exquisite and parallels that of the Classic Box. The look and feel is unique to the market of iPad cases released by other brands and designers. It feels more like a small attaché, masking and protecting well its treasured contents. Inside, you have space to place some of your documents with slots for cards. Of course, there is a well-padded space to place in your most treasured iPad.
I’m not exactly sure yet if it will fit an iPad 2, but assuming it was designed for the original iPad I’m pretty sure it will - given the original's smaller size. Rumor mills say that this fine piece will be available around July, potentially retailing at USD 2000-2500[do note, my guesstimate is as good as yours]. I know, it sounds expensive but I think this piece of art seems versatile enough to be used as a small clutch when it isn’t cradling your beloved iPad.
Will you be getting a piece of this exquisitely tailored luxury? I sure am thinking about it. In any case I’ll see if we can get more details on this from our local Céline shop here in Singapore and will keep you posted if any.
