New York Fashion Week may be over, but there are still so many details to uncover. For example — we couldn't help but notice the number of bags on the runway that could double as tech clutches, storing your ereaders, tablets, and other gadgets in a most fashionable way. Check out the items we'd like to squeeze our tech in.
Fashion week may be behind us, but checking out all those hot fashions really gets us in the mood for a wardrobe overhaul. Fall is arguably one of the best seasons for fashion, and this Marc Jacobs Polka-Dot Leather iPad Case ($550) could easily sit atop our gadget accessory wish list.
Coming in a lovely deep green, this case keeps your iPad fashionably protected all season long. Of course, the price tag may be too much for gals on a budget, but it does serve well for inspiration when searching for more affordable options.
Despite a severe gadget accessories addiction, we're adding the colorful laptop cases from the upcoming Missoni for Target collection to the shopping list. The laptop sleeve needs to be shown off, and hopefully the black and white chevron bag can double as a computer bag.
The line of over 400 clothing and home pieces is sure to be a hit with customers thanks to the iconic patterns and stripes of the Italian brand. FabSugar has more preview photos of the Missoni for Target collection; the items will hit Target websites and stores on Sept. 13!
Looking for a new laptop sleeve for Spring? Check out the Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon Computer Commuter bags available in both 15-inch and 13-inch versions. The nylon cases are padded for protection and feature large embroidered logo letters.
The case comes in four colors and features a detachable shoulder strap and exterior flap pocket. Pick up a case in one of four colors for $88 (13-inch) or $98 (15-inch). Click through the slideshow for more images and color options.
Luxury men's outfitter David August has released a line of accessories that includes the world's most expensive iPad case. While there are plenty of pricey gadget accessories to go around (including this overpriced Prada number), this one takes the cake for over-the-top accessories.
The case is made from "the world's finest alligator skin" and is hand cut and sewn by Italian artisans. The full accessory set of five pieces costs $37,800, and each piece is available in a range of colors, in glazed or matte finish, and completely customizable.

Take note gadget fashionistas: the Michael Kors collection for Apple ($80 - $130) is here, and it's beautiful. Coming with three designs each for your iPad and iPhone, all six clutches and cases come in soft leather with python, gold, or metallic accents to suit your high-end fashion palette. My favorite has to be the Python iPhone 4 Wallet Clutch ($80), which not only stores your cell in soft leather but even has room for credit cards and ID, so you can leave your big day-to-day tote at home for a sleek night out on the town.
Plus, there's room for your headphone jack and charging cables, so you'd almost never have to take it out of the case. Except to talk maybe? Holding up that big clutch to your face would be kinda awkward. Check out more pics of each case when you read more.
Maybe you should sit down. This iPad case? It's $3,900. This luscious Domenico Vacca number costs eight times that of a WiFi-enabled iPad (which seems to be a growing trend among gadget accessories), and it should — it's made from the finest genuine alligator skin, crafted in Italy, and comes in 25 different shades.
The first batch of these hard-to-come-by cases sold out in a flash, but good news for those of you who have a spare grand or two lying around the house — more are being made as we speak.
While designer tech accessories may not always be in the budget (especially after purchasing a top-dollar gadget!), they're almost always lustworthy. These just-released iPad clutches from Oscar de la Renta are no exception. The Red Python, Pearlized Rose Python, and Pearlized Taupe iPad Clutches retail for $390 each, while the black Embossed Crocodile iPad Clutch comes in at a (slightly) more reasonable $290.
I love, love, love all four of these beauties (especially the red one!) and would be quite happy to rock any of them.
Although this laptop sleeve cries out "Spring," it's the kind of thing that could put a smile on someone's face all year-round. The Coach Poppy Print laptop sleeve ($78) fits your 15-inch laptops like a glove, and surrounds them in leather-trimmed goodness. Plus, it's Coach, and if you're a label lover that's all you really need to know.
Personally, I could go either way with this case — I don't despise it, but I'm not gushing with lust, either. Now it's your turn — do you love it, or would you rather leave it?
Although I would have trouble whittling down my home office desk accessories, this ConSOUL desk from DesignSpray would be a fantastic addition to a tiny apartment or kids' room. The clean lines would prevent too much pileup on the desktop front so you can focus on your work instead of all those trinkets (or messy papers) within eye shot.
The only downside? The price. Even though this minimalist desk looks like it came from cost-conscious Ikea, it's priced at nearly $1,000. Maybe someone can hack a (much) cheaper Ikea desk and teach us all how to DIY one ourselves. Any takers?
