Object of Desire: Moda:Ko has you stylishly covered

Perfect shoes? Check!
Perfect shirt? Check!
Perfect pants? Check!
Perfect blazer? Check!
Perfect iPad sleeve? Uh oh! Better get a Moda:Ko!

Gone are the days of stuffing your precious electronics into utilitarian looking solid coloured neoprene zippered sleeves. Say hello to Moda:Ko, the brand designed to stylishly celebrate your electronic best friend as you move through your day to day and into the night.

Canadian made Moda:Ko is the fashion child of designer Kelly Ho Chia Lee and Byron Hawes and is, "an accessories line borne of the idea that a constantly carried accessory, like an iPad or MacBook, should be treated as a fashionable possibility. That function, fashion and fun need not to be mutually exclusive."

The line is divided into two collections known as the Downtown Collection and the Uptown Collection.

The spirited Downtown Collection, (starting at $45,) is bold and ready to make a statement with its energetic patterned fabrics including seersucker, houndstooth, polka dots and tartans. A thoughtful back pocket, (available in both collections on the iPad and MacBook cases,) allows for easy access filing of your phone and other "need to grab in a flash items," such as business cards or your Starbucks Gold Card as you breeze through the cash filling your "frappa-cappa-addiction".

My must have print is the, surprise surprise, black and grey Neville madras print. What can I say, it simply goes with everything, has a distinctly masculine vibe and is casual and sexy all at once.

The luxurious Uptown Collection (starting at $125,) is made with Italian leather detailing, sleek textiles including chrome tweed and black waxed cotton. The iPad mini version features a removable shoulder chain, allowing it to double as a clutch for the ladies. Fun fact, the chrome tweed fabric for the Uptown Collection was originally designed for Chanel.

My favorite fabric combination in the Uptown Collection is the Phillip in black and silver metallic tweed with leather. I can see any woman of any age carrying this thoughtful combination.
