The problem with pretty laptop sleeves is that you hardly ever get to see them when they’re stuffed in your purse. (Unless you take to carrying around your laptop as a huge clutch, which doesn’t seem very comfortable, safe, or practical.) Enter Rebecca Minkoff and her wonderful laptop carrier that’s half purse, half case. Both business-y and fashion-y, the alligator-embossed leather holder is accommodating enough to hold all your other necessaries, or is slim enough to complement a second purse.
Your laptop is having an identity crisis. Why? Because too often, Lappy feels like he’s wearing a mask when he’s zippered into some outfit that is completely unrepresentative of his style. This trompe l’oeil laptop case by Cooperative will show you value your machine’s essential beauty. You’ll protect your buddy, but still retain his basic character. OK, so that’s a bit far-fetched, but we’re crushing on this product because it’s cute and cheap. Need we say more?
We think you’d have to be kind of crazy to actually chop onions on your MacBook cutting board case, but for the gal who loves a two-in-one, go dice-happy. [Unplggd] Keep reading »
Maybe it’s because we’re bloggers, but for us, our computers rank among our most prized possessions. In fact, some of us would even say that our primary relationship is (sadly) with a laptop. To be fair, Lappy can be better than a boyfriend—he keeps you warm in bed, cuddles up with you any time to watch a movie, and is there for you in the middle of the night when you can’t sleep. So, we like to take good care of good ole Lappy McLapperson by making sure he’s dressed up in a swank case, like this Marc by Marc Jacobs denim sheath decorated with a multicolor sketch print. True, the girl illustrated on the cover doesn’t look too happy, but that’s the same look we’d get if Lappy broke up with us. Best to keep a reminder around so we treat him well.
J. Crew has come out with this chic 15-inch laptop case, which you’ll actually find in the men’s section. Channeling that classic prepster style, the zippered sheath shows off a tan leather border with a choice of red, navy, or black for a main color. Unfortunately, the tech accessory doesn’t quite bring the J. Crew prices you’re used to—at $285 each, the cost seems uncharacteristically high. So, why? For starters, the goods are a collaboration with a Montreal-based luxury label called Want Les Essentiels de la Vie, but also the chosen materials sound ultra-fancy. The bag uses “the finest” 100-percent certified organic Turkish cotton, sustainably produced leather from Norway, brass hardware, and is reinforced with Teflon fiber.
So maybe you’re paying for what you get, but in the meantime we’ll be stalking the J. Crew sales before paying full price (please put these on sale, please!). [$285, J. Crew] Keep reading »
It’s hard to find a laptop case that isn’t overly girly or completely utilitarian. Looks like Incase has come up with a creative solution. Collaborating with Japanese street wear website, Honeyee, the company created this sleeve made of a faux leather material that’s printed with a cool safety-pin design. On the inside there’s fake fur to keep your lappy safe from nicks and scratches. If you want one, better hop to it because it’s a very limited edition.
