Why Is J. Crew’s New Laptop Case So Cute (And So Expensive)?

J. Crew has come out with this chic 15-inch laptop case, which you’ll actually find in the men’s section. Channeling that classic prepster style, the zippered sheath shows off a tan leather border with a choice of red, navy, or black for a main color. Unfortunately, the tech accessory doesn’t quite bring the J. Crew prices you’re used to—at $285 each, the cost seems uncharacteristically high. So, why? For starters, the goods are a collaboration with a Montreal-based luxury label called Want Les Essentiels de la Vie, but also the chosen materials sound ultra-fancy. The bag uses “the finest” 100-percent certified organic Turkish cotton, sustainably produced leather from Norway, brass hardware, and is reinforced with Teflon fiber.

So maybe you’re paying for what you get, but in the meantime we’ll be stalking the J. Crew sales before paying full price (please put these on sale, please!). [$285, J. Crew]
