iCLARE: Clare Vivier is teaming with Apple to create an exclusive line of Macbook laptop cases. Available in three sizes, 11”, 13” and 15” Macbook Pro, the project hails back to Vivier’s early days as a designer. “I started my line with a laptop case way back when, and then I got a call from Apple,” she said. “It kind of came full circle.” Apple first approached Vivier almost two years ago with the collaboration proposal, which has been in development since. As part of the process, the designer was able to live out any Mac-obsessed fanatic’s dream: lunch at Apple headquarters. “It was just the most amazing food,” said Vivier of the Cupertino, Calif.-based compound. “It was everything you think Apple campus is going to be. It’s really beautiful.” The cases are available in three offerings: a cobalt leather, gray nubuck with red stripe detailing and black basketweave leather, and will be sold in select Apple stores beginning November 19th. Prices start at $199.95.
