'Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful'. - William Morris
We are very close, my iPad and me. We spend a lot of time hanging out together you see. Long, late nights. Early mornings both of us up with the larks. Whiling away afternoons in cafés or taking a long train ride. Often a bar if we are feeling a bit flashy.
Like any close relationship though, things can get stale. Sometimes you need to spice things up a bit.
Oh, Hi COVERT Accessories.
Last week I was fortunate enough to be invited to receive a sample of a beautiful iPad case from COVERT Accessories, the UK's leading creator of fashion-led tech accessories that launched in 2013. I find the usual range of tablet cases on the market a little sterile and so I jumped at the chance to receive a stylish new case to transform my iPad.
It was waiting for me when I came home from a night out in London Town. Despite the late hour and a few cocktails consumed, I could not wait to open the envelope, its contents inside painstakingly wrapped. Beautifully encased in a stylish box and monogrammed exterior, the case was gorgeous.
COVERT combines lasting style with amazing craftsmanship and my new iPad looks and feels brand new such is the quality. High-end visually, but with an affordable price tag attached, there is no need to break the bank to style your tablet.
Fashion over practicality has always appealed to me. Plus, the products are British-designed which is always a winner.
There are three collections in the COVERT Accessories portfolio - COVERT, C by COVERT and Rosie Fortescue for COVERT. It was The C by COVERT collection that caught my eye. It focuses on understated luxe and contemporary classics with signature organic, subtle palettes. The simplistic detailing guarantees style, functionality and high quality.
I chose the Elwood for iPad, constructed from soft brushed canvas in stylish grey and tightly secured with a band in a fabulous pop of orange. It looks fantastic, but securely holds my iPad in place when I am on the move and I can stuff things into the discreet document pocket, rather than have clippings from magazines and receipts falling helplessly out of my bag.
Thanks COVERT. We are back in love again and ready to write.
