Tech Geek Chic

While browing the New York Times this morning, this gorgeous red leather iPad case from Yves Saint Laurent caught my eye. Be still my heart.


Now, please realize, I do not own an iPad, nor do I plan to buy one (well maybe if prices drop) but I am crushing hard on this case, even though it costs as much as the iPad itself.

Begs the question: Can fashion make technology cool?

I say yes and really, it has...here are a few chic examples...

Harpers Bazaar chronicled the 7 Best Designer iPad cases last spring (Chanel {see pic below}, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, they all have one...YSL is still my fave though!)
Vivienne Tam designed this fab HP "digital clutch" bursting with pretty butterflies.


Kate Spade punched up the iPhone with its polka dot cover.

What about you? Do you splurge on accessories for your favorite gadgets?
