IPAD: a must have accessory?
Apple has become the go to company when it comes to dishing out products that get everyone drooling about. Be it the Ipod, Iphone, desktop or laptop computers, the truth is the exceptional design combined with easy to use functionality, justifies the hype surrounding all their products. It is common to spot people on the street listening to their Ipods, going on and about their daily tasks hopefully made more bearable by whatever tune is playing.
Recently, Apple introduced the IPAD to the market and despite the mixed reviews, it has become the ultimate electronic gadjet to purchase. Professional and personal use aside, I have to admit it looks damn good and makes for a great addition to any outfit. If you have been checking street fashion photos by The Sartorialist or Tommy Ton, you know what I’m talking about (Milanese men have incorporated it in their attire). Its influence on current fashion has reach such status that many high end brands wanted in on the IPADmania and are now offering several accessories, mainly cases. More than protecting your investment, these cases are aimed at providing it with an unique look and most of them go way beyond your average plastic case. Offers range from canvas and fine wool, to tweed and even exquisite leathers such as crocodile or ostridge.
If you happen to have an extra 1000€ sitting around (for the IPAD + acessories, more if you consider a nice case), and are into gadjets, by all means grab one, dress up and sport it proudly!
