Rapha for Apple collection has been designed to carry your iPads and MacBooks in style

TODO alt text

Apple has partnered with Rapha to create a new range of bags for carrying iPads and MacBooks (and maybe Android tablets and Windows laptops if you don't tell anyone).

Already well known for its stylish cycling clothing, the new bags have that Rapha-esque look with their single stripes adorning the outside.

The collection includes a mini messenger bag which you can wear over the shoulder or strap to your bike, a convertible tote backpack, and a collection of MacBook and iPad sleeves. There's also a 'Tech Organizer Kit' in the range, which Apple says is for storing things like charging cables and camera lenses.

When designing the collection, Alex Valdman, Rapha's Creative Director, drew on his observations of San Francisco’s cycling commuters, who combine riding with public transport and walking.

"We approached this project by focusing on precision, quality and problem-solving, and empathizing with the commuter whose journey is 4 miles or 40 miles," Valdman says.

All the bags are water repellent and made of hard-wearing fabrics and come in three colourways: blue with pink accents, black with grey accents, and yellow with grey accents.
