It seems like we’ve finally broken away from that idea that all laptop bags should be black and lack anything remotely stylish. That’s probably thanks to independent thinkers like Plastic People, a New York-based bag design company, who do a nice line in hip laptop carriers – like these Plastic People Custom Laptop Bags, designed by Shannon South.
There’s a number of colour combinations available, but the one pictured uses a vintage butterfly material – which certainly works for us. It’s handmade and custon-built, so you can specify laptop size you need. It also features half-inch foam padding, adjustable straps, a coloured liner, an interior side sleeve/pocket, an external front pocket and an external side pocket for your mobile phone or iPod.
Priced at $180 (around £98), the company ships worldwide, with postage costing around £13.50 to the UK.
