During the past few years, I have had a “fashion epiphany” where, in order for me to wear a garment or accessory it has to be beautiful (obviously!), but also practical. Otherwise, there is a high chance it will remain hidden away unworn in a dark corner of my closet collecting dust.
The CHARLIE mini backpack is the perfect balance between design and functionality. It’s spacious enough to fit my camera, notebook, phone charger, and lip balm – pretty much ALL the essentials! At the same time, it’s super compact.
I also love that the Charlie converts from a backpack to a shoulder bag to a handbag! In my ongoing mission to promote ethical and sustainable fashion, I often talk about the notion of cost per wear – evaluating the price (monetary and environmental) of an item according to the number of times you wear it. By having a 3-in-1 bag, like the Charlie, we can really maximize its use and wearability and, consequently, our purchase.
I am self-employed, so I am usually out-and-about meeting clients. Since first impressions count, when I go into my bag to take out my laptop, I like for my laptop cover to reflect my personality while still remaining professional.
The SACHA laptop case is minimalist, beautiful and not bulky – it ticks all the boxes! It easily slips into my bag without taking up all the space and I am genuinely proud to take it out during a client meeting and leaving it to lie on the table. Between you and me, that was not at all the situation with my old laptop case!
