Item of the Day

Tis the season for shopping for the latest tech gizmos. And while we can’t wait to get our hands on the latest from Apple or Microsoft, let’s face it many of their sleek electronic exteriors may appeal to the geeks of Silicon Valley, but even the coolest tech device often seem cold and bare to us fashionistas.

No wonder tech accessories companies are seeking some style advice from Seventh Avenue. Take M-Edge, a leading designer of tablet, smartphone, and e-reader accessories, that has teamed up with designer Trina Turk on a collection that brings her Southern California style and signature graphic prints to iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire HD and laptop cases.

Her tablet cases, for instance, not only look trendy but also offer 360 degree rotation to achieve portrait and landscape stand angles.

“Tech accessories have become as important as fashion accessories,” says Turk. “We are excited to collaborate with M-Edge to design items in our signature prints and patterns to accent today’s technology.”

Just like any good accessories collection, new designs will be added seasonally to incorporate the latest colors and trends.

Suggested retails: $40 to $60.
