iPad (iPad 2 included) accessories that are classified as ‘cool’ are a dime a dozen and this particular Chloé item just happens to one of them. its clean and minimalist look is what might appeal to business-class iPad users. the blackcurrant hue lamb leather gives the case a formal business feel, but not overly seriously as oppose to the strictly serious black. the subtle touch of gold hardware is classy, yet not too ostentatious. i don’t know about you, this case makes a dude like me wanting one – even if it’s a Chloé. that said, it is from Chloé, so expect to shell out £307.62 for this classy beauty. pricey but honestly, the beauty is hard to resist if not for my wallet’s violent objections. even though it might not have any obvious features to scrutinize but still, do check out a few more images of this gorgeous case – for admiration sake.
