reflecting the clean design aesthetic of the 1960’s, ‘business is pleasure’ by japanese designer le vero uses a vintage ‘royal’ typewriter to personalize each item in the collection. the business accessories are intended to help connect people during a first meeting through the paired back design and customized nature. the recycled typewriter adds a personal touch, these machines were once a colorful and elegant centerpiece of every desk, and have now been replaced by computers. built from strong japanese canvas, 100% wool and cowhide leather, the products also use metal hardware rather than plastic found on many computer bags. extra padding has been worked into both the front and back of the bag in a decorative quilted stitch pattern, which results in a soft and protective computer bag. the construction follows vintage, mid-century upholstery techniques, making the accessory a comfortable yet durable addition to the office environment. the collection also consists of a passport holder that fits a boarding pass in lengthwise, a pen holder, and additional storage pockets for customs papers, hotel info and other necessary documents.

  • This whole Collection looks stunning! I love all the attention to detail & with such clever little touches, such as the Storage Compartments in the Laptop Bag, Personalised Name Plates etc. it gives an elegance of times gone by but has all the modern needs & finishes of today’s busy lifestyle. It really has a certain style that one normally only finds at such high end & well established Brands but this Collection is available at a fraction of the cost. You only need to take a look of the Picture of the stitching – it’s perfect! They Truly Are A Class Act!

    If you haven’t seen the full capsule Collection that they are showing, at an extraordinarily discounted price, for their Kickstarter Project then I really recommend that you take a look at it in full. It is great to see such a wealth of talent in both design & manufacture for such a young Company. Also its a great opportunity to pick yourself up a piece at a fantastic price & also support a new dynamic partnership that, in my opinion, are really going to make a ‘big splash’ when they hit the marketplace!

    (Note Bene: I have no affiliation with the Company or it’s employees. I am just a Backer & Angel Investor in Companies, with experience of supporting over 300 Crowd Funded Projects across different platforms, and I believe in ‘singing out’ the praises when I see true talent & creativity being shown. I hope others will follow in my footsteps & help ‘kick start’ small companies by becoming a Backer of such talent, then also receiving a generous reward from them if they get funded. Did you know that ‘Kickstarter’ is an ‘all or nothing’ program, meaning unless a Project reaches or exceeds its requested funding goal, that unfortunately they receive nothing. So, what are you waiting for? Go check it out & help bring someone’s design dreams to life & in doing so help a young business succeed & in return receiving a great reward for doing so – what is there to lose?!)
