Great tech is an investment, and just like any other big investment, it deserves to be protected. No matter how many times you tell yourself that your iPad/tablet/laptop definitely isn’t going to come into harm’s way, it somehow always does.

I recently dropped my brand new MacBook Air and put a nice ‘ol dent in the corner, so I can personally attest to the importance of cases. (You should see the other guy, though. And by “the other guy,” I mean “the large gauge in my floor.”) Had it been in a case, I’m almost certain that it would have escaped unscathed. It would have looked even cuter while falling, too!

Kate Spade cases to protect your iPad or tablet

I’ve talked at length about my love for Saffiano leather on the Best Buy Blog before, and it’s a love that’s endured. Kate Spade has continued to use it quite frequently in their cases, which I’ve been happy to see over the years.

Saffiano leather is a durable, water-resistant kind of leather that resists damage and scratches quite well. Kate Spade cases this season feature a vegan version of it, which is similar in water- and scratch-resistance. It can be seen in both the Kate Spade Saffiano Perforated iPad Pro Folio Case and the Kate Spade Saffiano Perforated Surface Book Sleeve, so you can protect your on-the-go device with it no matter where your tech allegiances lie.

Keep your laptop stylish and safe with these Kate Spade cases

I love the versatility (and transportability) of iPads or tablets, but I’m a laptop girl at heart. I get a lot of work done on the go, so I love having my physical keyboard and bigger screen handy! 

To get your laptop around safe, sound, and stylishly, Kate Spade cases are offered in a few different 13″ options. The Kate Spade 13″ Laptop Sleeve this season features the same perforated floral design as the folio case and Surface sleeve above, which is awesome if you like your tech to have matching cases. It has a soft inner lining to protect your laptop from wear and tear (like what befell my own).

Kate Spade also has two colour-blocked laptop sleeves available right now, which I feel embody the Kate Spade aesthetic just perfectly. They’re simple but stylish, with Saffiano-style leather and gold-coloured zippers for a bit of extra class. The Kate Spade Saffiano 13″ MacBook Sleeve is available in both Black/Gold (which is really more like a grey/ivory) and Black/Pink Rose. I always feel like Kate Spade cases look great in pink, so I’m a big fan of the latter!

Finally, for ultimate functionality, there’s the black Kate Spade New York 13″ Laptop Designer Bag. It’s soft and functional, which doesn’t really fit the usual Kate Spade aesthetic. It looks like a cozy “home” for your tech, though, and it’s very no-nonsense. The inside is softly lined, and the exterior features both a shoulder strap and a built-in handle.

No matter what you need from a Kate Spade case, they have you covered for stylish basics. Kate Spade cases can be mixed and matched to your heart’s content, so go fourth and pair them together!
