Unit Portables, from Stockholm, Sweden, isn’t your typical line of bags and accessories. Designed to “fill the gap between boring computer bags and snobbish fashion notebook bags,” its products are based on a clever system in which each unit has its own number, creating structured storage solutions for one’s gadgets. Unit 01 is designed for laptops and comes conveniently packaged with Units 02 and 03 — two smaller pouches for phones, wallets or chargers — while Unit 05 is an Overnight Bag sold in a set with a mesh bag for toiletries, computer sleeve and pouch for one’s cables. They’re also easy on the eyes — each unit boasts clean, minimal lines in a spectrum of monochromatic options, making even the most cluttered of lifestyles look stylish and modern.
Unit Portables are available for purchase now at our online store.

Sensing a gap in the footwear market between “haute couture and street couture,” designer Guillaume Philibert founded Filling Pieces in 2009 as a way to fill the void with quality products and great design. Four years later, the Amsterdam-based label continues to churn out silhouettes that are both sporty and chic, sneakers made in Portugal from exotic, fair trade leathers and premium materials. Filling Pieces’ new Spring/Summer 2013 collection features riffs on the original Low Top — Philibert’s first design — in Polish salmon skin, genuine python from Thailand and Australian ostrich skin. More recent styles like the Mountain Cut and Oxford Cut, meanwhile, resemble hiking boots and cap-toe oxfords and are rendered in the same adventurous, globally-sourced materials. Should you be searching out “filling pieces” for the gaps in your own footwear arsenal, look for the new collection now at our online store.
