The luxurious Alcantara Type Cover for Surface Pro 4 is finally coming to Singapore

The luxurious Alcantara Type Cover for Surface Pro 4 is finally coming to Singapore

Introduced in April this year, the Microsoft Signature Type Cover for the Surface Pro 4 will soon be available in Singapore.

Announced at an event to introduce Microsoft’s series of collaborations with local fashion designer Max Tan for the Singapore Fashion Week, the Signature Type cover, to recap, sports the same nicely spaced keys and large glass trackpad as the standard Surface Pro 4 Type Cover. However, it’s wrapped with a luxurious Alcantara fabric that’s sourced exclusively from Italy. Meticulously made (Microsoft says each cover takes five weeks to produce), the Signature Type Cover feels soft to the touch and exhibits a two-tone gray mélange effect. It’s supposed to age beautifully over time, too.

The Signature Type Cover will be available at select retailers starting mid-November, at a price of S$249. I’m told that only a few hundred pieces are brought in.

MAX.TAN × Surface sleeves

On a related note, if you’re a fan of Max Tan (the designer) or MAX.TAN (his womenswear brand), know that he has designed three exclusive Surface device sleeves. Two of these sleeves (in tan and red) are available for consumers who purchase a new Surface device at selected retailers and online via the Microsoft Store until October 31. TANGS will also carry an exclusive edition in black for customers who purchase any MAX.TAN apparel instore.
