What if the case in question were the acid yellow Proenza Schouler iPad Case, which is easily the least iPad-case-looking designer iPad case I’ve seen since the advent of the product? How many more times do you think I can work the phrase “iPad case” into this post? I’d say that the over-under is six.
Anyway, this thing’s kind of a looker, right? And at $685, it’s cheaper than any of Proenza Schouler’s other clutches by a long shot, and unlike most spendy iPad cases (1), this one actually has a functional front flap pocket and the same detailing as the rest of the brand’s handbags. So I ask you: Why not leave the iPad at home, throw your regular stuff inside and carry this iPad case (2) as a clutch?
I see no reason why not, actually. The leather on this case isn’t rigid, and what do you really need for a night out that would be so bulky? A phone, a card case, some cash, a lipstick, your keys; all of that would fit in this iPad case (3) without making it bulge in an unsightly way, and the bright color is calling my name so loudly right now. Plus, the lines of this design are a little bit starker and straighter than those of the PS1 clutch, which feels very current in today’s aesthetic climate. Plus, like I already said, iPad cases (4) are cheaper than clutches! So what are we waiting for? Buy through Proenza Schouler for $685 (in orange-red and black, too).
Oh, and good for those of you who bet on the under. I only got to four.
