We’re all familiar with Moleskine’s line of very popular notebooks, but the Italian company is making a foray into the bag and storage scene. Moleskine has announced a number of messenger and backpack style bags designed for both technology and analog tools or supplies.
After the break we have more information on all five models, plus details on availability and pricing.
First up, Moleskine has the Device Bag series, offering two different solutions for carrying a lighter load of products. The Horizontal Device Bag has a messenger style design that can carry a 13-inch laptop in addition to accessories needed for both digital and analog creation. It will retail for $89.90.
Meanwhile, the Vertical Device Bag offers a portrait layout and backpack straps, it will also hold a 13-inch laptop with pockets for holding cables, accessories and tools. The Vertical bag carries a price tag of $99.90. Both of these slim-profile bags are available in Payne’s Grey or Scarlet Red with a water-repellent polyester outer shell.
Additionally, Moleskine has a new myCloud Collection of bags, which are made of the same water-repellent polyester material. There are three offerings here with different designs to fit the needs of the user. Starting at $149.95 for the Smallpack, this “dainty, resistant” backpack can carry smaller laptops and is available in Payne’s Grey or Scarlet Red. The Briefcase model is more robust and offers larger storage compartments for additional devices such as iPads or accessories. It will ship in Payne’s Grey for $185. Finally, the Briefcase Curve is designed to be carried as a messenger bag or over-the-shoulder storage solution. It is slight smaller than the aforementioned Briefcase and retails for $185 as well.
It’s no surprise that Moleskine is getting into the world of bags and briefcase. It seems like a natural fit, especially if the workmanship of its notebooks are carried over.
New Moleskine bags introduce new colors and styles for creativity on the move.
Moleskine adds 5 new bag models introducing a new color, a slimmer design and its first ever Device bags to its existing collection of tools for creativity. Designed to contain, carry and protect everything you need to be creative on-the-go, the bags bring the brand’s iconic design together with enhanced comfort and functionality.
Every detail appeals to the needs of the modern nomad and the personal mix of analog and digital tools which follows them wherever they go. Storage space has been organized into various compartments for quick access and maximum protection, including laptop compartments (also useful for keeping newspapers crease-free), cable pockets, pen and business card holders, and of course, a dedicated space for the notebook. Exterior features make it easy to attach the bag to a trolley handle and adjust the straps for a perfect fit.
