Place: Italy

Thing: Paul Smith for Apple accessories

Ridiculously prolific designer Paul Smith is adding even more projects to his overflowing organizer this month.

The preppy Brit has designed a lovely limited-edition glass bottle for Evian, but we're even more excited about his other collabo: a collection of accessories for Apple, including graphically beautiful laptop cases featuring his signature stripes juxtaposed with nature imagery.

They're so pretty, in fact, we predict even the most hardened Luddites will be lining up for them.
