Style with Grace

We are quite often out and about at meetings or events, and though we have got used to the standard black laptop bags to carry gear around in, it was a welcome bit of news when we spoke to our client STM about their new range of bags. Named the Grace after US Navy Admiral ‘Amazing’ Grace Hopper who helped developed the first programming language that revolutionised the computer world, the Grace range is elegant, fun and strikes a balance between simplicity and style. stm grace all dark purple front angle Combining STM’s trademark focus on protection for your digital gear, and clever thoughtful design, the Grace is a chic and sophisticated range. Consisting of a Clutch, Sleeve and Deluxe Sleeve, the whole range is designed to carry, protect and organise just the essentials of any digital day and are all slim enough to drop into another larger bag if necessary. They all come in four different colour options – night sky, dark purple, coral/dove and teal dot/night sky, and for 13″ or 15″ laptops. We are having trouble here deciding on our favourite (Jess has voted for purple to go with her purple laptop, obviously). STM Grace_Deluxe Sleeve The Clutch is available for £14.95, Sleeve for £29.95 and Deluxe Sleeve for £39.95. For more information please see
