Who would have thought that when the iPad was designed a few years ago, we would be spending almost as much money on the case as we would on the device! But today, with the rise of designer cases, and each one making a different fashion and luxury statement, they are becoming as important as which generation iPad you have.
Ridiculous really but some people would not even entertain leaving the house without their iPad case so the fashion houses have cashed in on this relatively new trend. I have to say, some are positively stunning and hats off to Marc Jacobs who seems to come up with the best design, textures, materials and colours every time. We have picked the most luxurious and some will say expensive, but they are designer brands! Check these beauties out from net-a-porter.com:
