HELLO YOU! KNOMO’S LATEST IPAD PRETTY

2 Posted by - October 15, 2013 - LIFESTYLE

Knomo, the London-based tech accessories brand, is right up my alley. I simply love a gadget and it goes without saying that a stylish gadget needs an equally stylish home. So when the latest Knomo leather iPad satchel arrived at my office last week it was love at first sight. I am obsessed!

Meet Oldbury – it comes in black and cherry, and I love that the shape is classic and ladylike. It’s a timeless choice for day or night, work or play and yes, I put both shades to the test. Use the handle to carry it like a handbag or a modern-day briefcase, or the detachable cross-body strap for those days when you really got to run. Love.

And the Oldbury is not just good-looking; it has pockets and compartments for all your ‘office’ gear plus a shock-protected iPad compartment. Like what you see? Of course you do.

    I love the shock-protected iPad compartment idea, My ipad screen cracked, hopefully it still works and I would hate to see it get worse.

    oh did i mention it’s my birthday on 23rd October…

    I love leather and i love my iPad. Are we meant to be? yes. yes we are.

    I just haven’t been able to find the right accessory to upgrade my old student ipad cover to something more chic for a working woman. until now…the Oldbury is a beauty!

    Why should I get the Knomo Oldbury iPad leather satchel? Well, I love the style of the bag, it has a vintage yet modern look to it. I’m a apple fanatic and this bag would work perfectly for an iPad or just simply for the bare necessities. I prefer quality over quantity and this satchel is definitely the best quality!

    I love the idea of this leather iPad satchel! Working two jobs means I need to carry my iPad and equipment around, whilst still looking stylish, but a backpack doesn’t really work for that, and a handbag doesn’t offer enough protection. The shock-protected compartment would be perfect. I’m often always in a rush, and the detachable cross body strap would be perfect for those days when I have to run, and have a million things to carry! The Knomo Oldbury iPad leather satchel would be a perfect addition to my work essentials. Pretty please?

    This is one stunning iPad satchel and yes, it has my name written all over it (“,) .With a gadget as cool as an iPad, it needs an equally chic bag to carry it around. My iPad would feel at “‘home”in the stylish and gorgeous cherry Knomo leather satchel. As much as it will stand out from the crowd, so will I :)

    WOW! I just neeeed one of these. I want to take my iPad on holiday when me and my boyfriend head off with his friends. Would be great to make a first impression on the friends, how could I not with this beauty!

    Nothing collaborates better than Style that Works- Litterally. As a fashion student, freelance graphic designer & blogger I fell in love knowing that the Knomo bags detachable cross-body strap would allow me to tick the boxes of two seasonal trends, and the ever age-less classic trend of owning leather, as it also protects my iPad with its intelligent interior! The Knomo Oldbury iPad leather satchel is the perfect all season must have as I run around meeting clients & keep loyal to my fashionable look as a fashion blogger. (Form follows function & fashion) ❤

    Having one particular colour of the Oldbury iPad leather satchel would be my cherry on the top! :) Not only is it practical but beautiful as well; it definitely puts the fun in functional.

    As a design educator, what better way to practice what I preach about good design than by exemplifying it daily?

    Gadgets and style just don’t seem together & I don’t know why. As a blogger I need something very practical that still looks the part. This makes me want to take my iPad EVERYWHERE!

    I’ve got to have this!!! It’s been six years that I’ve been on a hunt for something simple, beautiful and functional to carry everything in…..being a architecture student whose often on site, I find myself tugging along a bag that hardly fits everything and makes me look like a ninja turtle. This has enough space for devices as well as a few girly extras. Not forgetting how glamorous it looks!!

  • Ayesha Kola October 20, 2013 - 11:45 pm Reply

    I love the gorgeous styles, I love that it looks like a smart handbag. Just bigger that can sleekly fit devices. Definitely a must have in my books as its such an investment piece…especially since I use a bag daily for work being a freelancer. Always a winning formula when style meets technology!

    I first discovered the brand Knomo when Pippa Middleton was spotted carrying it on the streets of London, immediately I fell in love with Knomo’s whole range! What catches my eye is that they well- constructed, sleek , stylish, looks so luxe, great quality, practical and ultra girly! It’ll take a while before I could afford a Knomo but its so worth it. Fingers crossed for this

    Love the versatility of it. About time there was a decent looking handbag for ladies that is both fashionable and practical!!! Why wouldn’t someone want it?

    Firstly, I have to say that I adore the craftmanship of this leather satchel. It’s absolutely stunning and I’m all about quality & leather.

    Flying through a job that requires on the go-ness where my tablet and bounds of paper are usually stashed in my current sling satchel as I’m flying out the door need to, desperately, come to an end. And this beaut is the perfect answer! Especially with the different compartments of the satchel.

    I’m totally obsessing over the structure of the bag and that cherry colour, oh my.
    Plainly put, I’m dying! Would absolutely kill for this Knomo Oldbury iPad leather satchel
