Nothing bad could ever come of combining the exquisite patterns of famed pattern-maker Alexander Girard, and renowned bag makers Built NY. It’s a match made in heaven as Girard’s folk-inspired work (which we have featured many times before) adorns the useful, sturdy and stylishly-tailored range which includes an iPhone case, lunch purse, shoulder bag, camera case and laptop sleeve.
For parents, these kinds of protective products become essential as our little ones can wreak havoc on our expensive gadgets. My iPhone would have long ago gone to Apple heaven if it had not had a case – my kids use the apps every day so it has inevitably been dropped!
Patterns available are the black and white ‘Retrospective’, the candy-colourful ‘La Fonda’, and my favourite ‘January’ in tones of pink and red. The lunch purse is $79.95, the camera case is $44.95, iPhone case is $39.95, the laptop sling is $89.95 and the shoulder bag is $119.95 from Shop Until.
