Originally a weekend pastime for founder Shashi Reddy and his wife, Case-Mate has blossomed into one of the world’s leading mobile accessories brands. The Reddys launched Case-Mate in 2005 with a fairly straightforward goal: to create super-stylish tech accessories that combined expert engineering and cutting-edge materials. They succeeded: Today, Case-Mate’s award-winning, fashion-forward product line includes brightly colored iPhone cases and tablet covers embellished with animal prints, glitter, and other attention-grabbing designs. Models like the Phantom and Tank iPhone cases offer military-grade protection in bright colors such as turquoise and tangerine. For more conservative crowds, Case-Mate’s Barely There (iPhone), carbon fiber (iPhone), and Venture (iPad and Kindle) series come in basic black and gray with textured finishes. Regardless of color or style, every Case-mate accessory has enough personality to stand on its own.
You may not want to cover up your beloved mobile device, but these sleek cases by Case Mate, Hard Candy, and others will protect your precious laptop, iPhone, or iPad without detracting from its sex appeal. Give your device the love it deserves with any of these second skins in cool hues — plus, rest easy when you travel with the stylish laptop bags.
