Welcome to Stripe City: The global destination for horizontal, linear, and colorful eye-candy. This perfect storm combines unexpected and breezy bold stripes with the hues we are seeing all over the runways. Prada is clearly the front runner with their SS11 collections. Prada’s designs use a bevy of bold colors donned on dresses, handbags, and shoes. Their palette of bright orange, pink, black and white is flawless. My good friend, style innovator, Andrew Mukamal, and I dreamed up the ultimate ipad clutch inspired by this seasons must have color combo. It’s perfect for our on-the-go adventures and also works as a non-tech accessories, to tote around town.
To create a version of your own, reach for a durable kitchen drawn liner, heavy duty, colorful tapes (Duck, Gorilla, and Gaffers are my favorites), Velcro and scissors. Measure (by wrapping your ipad around), and cut to size. Fold bottom half up, and tape all around to seal and secure. Continue to tape and smooth away any lumps and air bubbles. Stick pieces of velcro as the clasp and your clutch is complete! Get creative with your patterns and colors. Yell it from your pipes: I love STRIPES!
