Finding a new designer is always exciting, especially when you consider the tight hold some big brands have on the handbag market. Earlier this month, I was introduced to Dillon Des Pres. When I saw his line, I felt a freshness that I always yearn for; the designs are simple and natural, with a beautifully finished aesthetic. It looks like Dillon Des Pres has an exciting career ahead of him – shortly after his launch, Moda Operandi commissioned this exclusive iPad case/clutch from him.
Crafted from vegetable-tanned leather, the Dillon Des Pres iPad Case has an envelope-style construction with a cutaway front flap, brass rivet embellishments and a contrast bridle leather belt-style strap that reminds me of Restoration Hardware. The fact that this reminds me of the famous housewares is not just a good thing, but an amazing thing – half my apartment is furnished from Restoration Hardware, and I love the brand’s feel. This case can be easily used for a woman or a man and looks both strong and feminine at the same time. There will be much more to come from Dillon Des Pres, but for now you can buy this iPad case for $215 via Moda Operandi.
