knomo Bags from London – sold in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

2013 and I got my first designer handbag! :)

Well, I’m more of a shoe girl, buying them in every shape, colour & size and priced from RM10 – RM1000 (no Jimmy Choos yet) but I have yet to splurge this much on a bag. This is the knomo Rubi Dome Zip Top, RRP 1099.

Knomo-16

I was given a few to choose and selected this one as the rich colour and luxury finish caught my attention. I won’t deny that I was attracted to the pink one, but I thought the understated elegance of this Rubi in bronze would suit my wardrobe & corporate profile better.

In truth, I go from colourful to prints to subdued blacks anytime, anyday and as and when I wish and the Rubi seems to match my chameleon nature easily enough.

For those who have seen me during events would have noticed that I usually lugged 2 bags around, one a handbag for the camera, purse, pens, tissues, hairbrush (you get the drift) and another for the laptop. Due to the amount of travel and walking I do (from the car to the event venue to the carpark) and taking into consideration the odd hours (events do finish late), my bag for the laptop is quite an ugly looking one but one that’s very inconspicuous, so much so that you won’t take another look at it.

I have been looking for a nice bag that doesn’t look like a laptop bag for the longest time. I buy a new bag every 2 months or so and they never last, the handles are always to the first to go as it can’t take the weigh of both my ultrabook and camera. And my ultrabook is only 1.3kg max!

So when I was contacted to review the knomo bags, I was immediately interested as knomo are known for their range of laptop bags but in stylish, sleek designs. Exactly what I need! :)

Here’s the interior. It fits everything that I’ve got pretty well!
My Asus Zenbook, Padfone 2, Sony NEX 6, hairbrush, purse and still with sufficient additional space for snacks (yes I keep food in my bags!), power cord for the Zenbook, mouse and etc.

A full review, with regards to comfort, shape (does it stay in shape with me stuffing so many things in it?) and ease of handling (meaning carrying around,  whether the handles are comfortable on the arms, and its hardiness (it is a laptop bag, so can it take the weight? are the handle sturdy) would be next week or so.

You’re killing me with the bags! I’m a huge fan of bags… (and shoes whenever I’m stressed). One question though…I always have problems with leather bags. The most they could last is just a year. The skin will never fail to fall off like some snake changing it’s skin, even the branded ones like Bonia and Polo. :( Have any tips to remedy that? So sick and tired buying expensive bags and they couldn’t even last for a year! So kesian me… these days I got fed up and just opt for canvas backpacks… :(

ps: the bag is lovely. Love the colour!
