Have you ever tried to make a bucket bag fit a rectangular laptop? Or bought a computer case with the hope of carrying it around under your arm, only to completely neglect it every day? (Been there, done that.) It’s kind of funny how some people will spend three figures on a handbag but are reluctant to buy something that will protect their pricey laptop.
Yes, the term “laptop bag” may sound dull, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t chic options out there. In fact, one of my favourite brands—Knomo, the solution to my six-month search—makes the sort of laptop bags that are perfect for work and beyond. The brand’s bags are also padded inside and feature pockets and slip pouches, making a meagre canvas bag obsolete.
