Protect your laptop and iThings with these sleek laptop totes, MacBook sleeves, duffle bags, and other tech accessories by Hex. Founded in 2010 by longtime friends and business partners Dan Maravilla and Trent Valladares, Hex designs everything from canvas backpacks and textured iPhone cases to bright blue and yellow watch bands for your iPod Nano. Extra pockets and cushioning make each accessory super-practical as well as stylish. Based in Southern California, Hex is Maravilla and Valladares’ second joint venture; the other, August, launched in 1990, offers more traditional fashion accessories such as headbands and small leather goods.
Being connected is just as important as looking good. To that end, these iPhone docking stations, audio systems, and speakers will keep you plugged in while you work (and they’re all stylish, to boot). Also, don’t miss the wide selection of cases, and some seriously nifty retro radios and record players.
