Oh, Fashion Week. While many are at the shows to see and be seen, there are plenty of us who are actually there to work. On top of running frantically from one show to another, we online writers and editors are also fighting for precious power outlets, angling for space in the free-for-all “blogger pit” in Lincoln Center, and basically racing to get our pieces up on the internets before the next. So, yeah, we’re toting our precious MacBook Pros (sorry, PCs are so Spring 2000) all over town–and our laptop bags better be more than presentable.
But it’s not so simple. Yes, the bag has to be cute (or chic or refined or futuristic, whatever can get you into the street style snaps, right?), but portability is key, too. Staying nimble is the mantra at Fashion Week, people! Thankfully there are some tech-savvy designers making really cool laptop bags out there that suit any style and budget—from lightweight, adjustable cross-bodies to menswear-inspired top-handle satchels to sleek envelope clutches. (And there are some great bags out there that just happen to be big enough to tote a laptop–we included those, too.) These bags will help us look good and do our job anytime of the year, even when it’s not Fashion Week.
