Unit Portables AW13 Collection
How many pieces of technology do we each actually own? You need only take a quick look around on the morning commute (lifting your head that’s buried in your iPad, no doubt) to notice how technology savvy the world actually is.
Who has been continuously jostled on the tube by commuters, compromising their stability by determinedly cradling their Kindle in one hand and Android in the other? Or been subjected to a series of questionable playlists blasted from a sea of headphones on the bus? Even the motorway isn’t safe, as you sit in the 8am traffic surrounded by morning meetings taking place via Bluetooth earpieces.
The morning ritual for the majority of us involves frantically grabbing mobiles and iPods and throwing them into jacket, trouser and bag pockets – only to begin the panic inducing ‘pat down’ as soon as you set foot in the office door.
Thankfully, Swedish-based brand Unit Portables has designed a range of technology-inspired bags to provide a secure and organised way of transporting our prized possessions.
Aiming to fill the void between boring computer bags and ‘snobbish fashion notebooks’, the brand offers functional yet stylish bags at affordable prices. The current range includes shoulder bags with two pockets (one with an added tablet pouch), an overnight bag (which boasts room for a change of clothes and footwear in addition to your tech needs), rucksack and tote bag, as well as other smaller storage pockets (for iPods, smartphones etc.), which can be bought separately and added to the main bodies as per your needs.
Each bag comes in an impressively wide range of colours too, which makes them even more appealing to the eye – from standard black to fuchsia pink. And with the potential dreariness of winter growing ever closer, the brand has also added a further three colour ways specifically for autumn/winter 2013: charcoal grey, burnt orange and deep purple. Each of the additional colours will be running across the entire range, excluding only the overnight back and backpack, which will both be available in charcoal.
