It's all coming full circle for LA handbag designer Clare Vivier. As foldover clutch superfans know, the accessory star's success story goes like this: girl working a stint in French TV needs a stylish iBook case, girl goes all DIY and a booming bag business is born. Seeing as Apple's been hiring a host of fashion folks to join their tech team, it comes as no surprise that they tapped the Echo Park-based bag maker to create a collection of chic leather laptop cases in her signature colorblocked style.

As the designer reveals on her blog, the three-piece line of stylish padded sleeves comes in 11", 13" and 15" sizes ($199.95 to $219.95) and features "a cozy suede zipper protector panel so no metal will scratch your beautiful Apple laptop." Check out the other two cute covers after the jump.

The LA-made merch is available at Apple stores in Santa Ana's Westfield Valley Fair and Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade. Our holiday wish list is getting longer by the minute.
