ONE OF MY PERSONAL favorite designers, JACK SPADE, has teamed up with Tech-heavyweight Apple to create and Apple bag. Here is a quote from the website:

“The bag…features a removable padded laptop sleeve, an exterior zipper pocket for an iPod with a buttonhole loop for headphones, an exterior zipper pocket for an iPhone, an exterior magazine pocket…”
5 years ago I would have been rushing to the nearest apple store (because they are not being sold at Jack Spade’s store in SOHO), but today I was a bit disappointed. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, has teamed up with apple, officially or unofficially, to create a product in hopes of somehow riding the iPod wave.

Conversely, I’ve always felt that the Jack Spade brand maintained an honorable obscurity; teaming up with underground designers and going against the mainstream grain. Well, I guess it was a good business move. You can read more HERE.
