Back in April, we discovered the iMaxi, the most hilariously literal iPad case to date. Cleansing the palate of that image, Gucci, will launch a luxurious iPad case collection in mid-June, to be available at the Fifth Avenue flagship. Time to put your name on the waiting list, people! Retailing at $230 (kind of steep, but isn't your iPad worth it?), the double G-logo-ed case features a strap closure and suede lining to keep your precious iPad plushly protected. It doesn't stop there, starting in October, "special occasion" iPad cases will start rolling out, like a silver leather number for the holidays, a poppy red for Valentine's Day and a blinged out diamanté-patterned one (to be available only at Gucci.com). Looks like our iPads may be better dressed than we are.
