Violet May London, Luxury Laptop Bags and Accessories: BAGTRENDS

Dear Bagistas,

I'm working on a laptop bag story for AOL's fashion site - http://www.stylelist.com/ - and I can't tell how hard it has been to round up a selection of fashionable, computer-friendly bags. It's not like I've never shopped for this bag or written about it, but I'm really trying to find a few that are also true luxury laptop bags - not an easy task. What's a gal who loves the luxury of a Carlos Falchi crocodile tote or a new ditty from Lanvin supposed to use when she goes high tech? Tumi? No offense to Tumi, but while the quality is certainly there, there's still no feminine lux, no use of exotic skins or unique fabrics of other kinds, no wow factor.

Presenting ...

Violet May, a London-based accessories company that as they say "brings a touch of fabulousness and luxury to everyday working life." Founder Claire Collins realized, like most of us, that it's quite frustrating to find stylish, business accessories, so she decided to help herself - I mean us - out. Violet May is produced in Spain at an atelier with over 100 years of experience in the leather goods manufacturing industry. Doesn't that alone make you want to go out and buy one? I mean how many brands that have launched in the past 5 years are being produced in the fine European factories using skilled artisans and top of the line skins? Few! Trust me. Any way, enough of my babbling. Do check out the Viotet May website and you'll see why I'm raving about this brand. The prices aren't budget conscious - the featured style here is $970. But you are getting the python, the fabulous inner lining, the detailing, the craftsmanship and the pleasure of owning a truly bag-a-licous laptop bag.

Have a bag-a-licious day!

Tell me about it! As a gal who travels often for work - laptop and all - I'm thrilled to have found Violet May. This morning I actually did a phone interview with the designer for a feature story we're working on at www.BagTrends.com. Claire, the designer, is so nice and she just exudes the sophistication you would expect from the founder of such a luxurious brand. Stay tuned for the story and ... a fun surprise.

Have a bag-a-licious day!
