A materials and product round up, to inspire you for winter 15/16

Blending high-tech and tradition, St Dupont has produced a range of laptop cases in calf leather embossed with diagonal lines imitating the striations of carbon fibre. Ever-pragmatic Estime has designed a rigid case for the iPad 2 in smooth and shiny calf leather, including openings giving access to the various connectors and buttons. In keeping with its sense of luxury and its expertise with crocodile leather, Zilli has produced a telephone case with a waxed finish, whilst its tablet case has been given a fine protective layer of resin. Imaginative and refined, Isaac Reina delights us with his original and elegant ideas, the fruit of an creativity that knows no limits. “I don’t restrict myself to certain leathers for this type of product and I give full rein to my instincts”, the designer declares. He covers all angles with a choice of hard and soft cases. His simple and functional telephone case in vegetable-tanned moulded calf is for fans of natural leather. For more quirky tastes, he has chosen water snake and patent calf printed with a tortoise shell motif. Fashion and connectivity combined!
