Vintage photo slides give laptop bag old-school feel

The first thing you'll notice about the Skylark LTD. is the use of photographic slides to furnish the front and sides of the bag.

Although this laptop holder looks typical of any other run-of-the-mill bags, there is more to it than meets the eye.

The Skylark LTD. is designed and created by RedCamper's Maura Gramzinski. The first thing you'll notice is the use of photographic slides to furnish the front and sides of the bag. These slides are actual vintage images taken by Gramzinski in the past, and each picture is carefully chosen by her.

Other than the old photographs, the designer also sourced 1970s car upholstery to make the Skylark LTD. The adjustable strap of the bag is modeled after a seatbelt, complete with a clip from an airplane.

The Skylark LTD. can hold a 15-inch laptop and has compartments for your iPod, mobile phone, and other knickknacks. But you got to have a deep pocket for this retro-looking bag. It retails for $224 on RedCamper's Web site, though given that each piece is handmade, that probably justifies the price.
