5pm Fix: H by Harris

26 October 2009

Harris Elliot

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. You want a sexy laptop case? How about one in hand-quilted nappa leather – in classic black, or lipstick red, which not only perfectly protects your precious laptop, but looks superluxe too?

Et voila; check out these sophisticated cases, designed by fashion stylist Harris Elliott, the man who made us fancy Mark Ronson (Elliott styled him for his Version album cover), as well as dressing Scarlett Johansson and Eva Green for the red carpet, and working on photoshoots for iD and GQ.

His H by Harris range (check out his oh-so ’90s quilted backpacks too) are beloved by such A-list boutiques as Dover Street Market, Browns and B-Store.

'You spend so much on a gorgeous laptop, I just wanted something equally cool to carry it in,' says Elliott. 'Most people just use those naff neoprene skins that are not that nice. I wanted to design something that was just a bit cooler, with a sexy nostalgic edge,' he says of the quilted cases (all handmade in England) that call to mind the interior of a ’50s Cadillac.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the bags are also being used as mega-clutches. When something looks this chic, it’s a shame to have to leave it at home with the laptop.
