This is perhaps the most beautiful laptop bag I’ve seen. If only it came in red! The Item 01 bag from La Fonction is made of aniline-finished cow leather and is lined with a cotton/polyurethane Italian canvas. It measures about 17″ X 14″ X 2.4″ and weighs 4.4 pounds. It fits newer-generation laptops up to 15″. When closed up, it looks like a sleek, luxurious messenger bag. Unfold it, and it turns into a workstation that holds pens, notepads, and other gear in the pockets that line the side panels. Those panels can serve as privacy panels to prevent your nosy seat mate from reading your files (or watching your movies) during flight. There’s also a removable pouch on the front of the bag to hold chargers and cables. Beauty and function comes at a high price – €840 (about $1138 US). Add in shipping and customs charges and it may cost as much as my fully loaded 11″ MacBook Air cost.
