Marc Jacobs — does he ever not knock it out of the park? On a Sunday
spree browse 'round the Bal Harbour Shops, we spotted MJ's spring '12 handbag collection, which puts a modern spin on the classically chic quilted pattern. Among the goodies, we couldn't take our eyes of a certain gadget "sleeve." Indeed, as much as we love our iPad (it's basically our child by now), we don't love those duller-than-dull tech cases that are taking over Starbucks. So, this cherry-red version is an oh-so-fabulous way to cart around your best accessory — disguised as a cute cross-body bag (or clutch)! Plus, the plush leather and signature nameplate hardware, plus zippered outside pocket means geek has never been more chic.
Marc Jacobs Quilted iPad Case, $495, available at Marc Jacobs Bal Harbour, 9700 Collins Avenue (at 96th Street); 305-864-2626.
