Now that our MacBook Pros are an extension of our bodies, it’s easy to forget that the laptop accessories market was once dominated by those identikit Curry’s-own laptop bags. You know the sort – an armoured dinosaur briefcase variety that businessmen lugged around circa 2000. But, hallelujah, these days there’s a luxe tech-encasing product to meet the individual needs of every square-eyed worker bee out there. Here’s a trio we’re lusting after for AW14.
Chanel a rural-girl-in-the-city vibe with this Barbour number. Crafted from 100% waxed cotton canvas, lined with traditional Barbour tartan and trimmed with leather, it delivers for the office as well as weekends away. Clean with a soft damp cloth. £148.
Marc by Marc Jacobs‘ slim, lightweight offering comes in gorgeous printed faux patent leather. There’s a practical internal padded lining to protect from knocks and bumps, making it ideal for travel, plus a zip fastening along the top. £120.
Minimal, elegant and functional, LUXAC‘s Max model marries the aesthetic appeal of a handbag with the practicality of a backpack. Spacious enough to fit all your essentials as well as a laptop, it comes in Jet Black, Hot Chocolate, Camel, Crimson, Midnight Blue, Deep Purple and the brand new Camo. £445.
