This Abby Patent laptop sleeve by Lauren Merkin (a cool emerging designer) reminds me a lot of the oversized clutch trend — the foldover closure makes it look like it's holding your going-out essentials instead of your laptop.
Usually I buy sleeves to put inside a bag, but this one could be comfortable carried on its own. But I worry that the scalloped edge and black patent would get old fast.
It's also available in a metallic version and is $150, down from $225. So what's the verdict?
