Designers for ipad

I have to admit, I'm a bit late to the ipad game. I was trying to hold out for the next version (you know the next version will come out next spring - hopefully with a camera!), but when Target announced they were selling them and I had a 10% off coupon burning a hole in my pocket, I cracked and bought one. Needless to say, I love it, but I'm not in love with the basic apple logo case I bought to protect it. You could say I'm on a mission to find the perfect case. Did you know there are literally hundreds of designs out there to chose from? Not to mention big names making them (Neiman's, Barneys, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, the list goes on). You would think I would find one that was perfect, but alas, the search goes on.  My friend Hadley sent me a link to this Oscar de la Renta cover, which is quite fab, but not the look I'm going for. My husband teased me that I should see if Louis Vuitton has one (I've been asking for a LV bag for a while now) - little did he know they do make one (and I really kinda like it!). Below are the one's I'm coveting most. For now I think I'll stick with my functional cover, but Christmas and my birthday are right around the corner and any of these would make great gifts.

Louis Vuitton ipad case ($390) from LV UK

Etch-a-Sketch case ($39) from headcase

And the Creme de la Creme....Chanel!  Weighing in at $1555, this one will set you back (it is a classic though, right?)

Chanel ipad case from Chanel (800-550-0005 to order)
How much would you spend on a case for your ipad? I know I'm not in the market for any of these (except maybe the etch-a-sketch - it's only $39!).

I fully support the purchase of an LV iPad case! Do it!

Etch-A-Sketch wins, hands down!
