In our modern, connected world, we can expect bags to do a lot more than just carry our stuff. This is where Piquadro’s new Black Square collection comes in. What will catch your eye first is that this is a stylish line of premium Tuscan leather laptop cases and backpacks, but that’s what happens here. interior that really sets this collection apart.
Each Black Square bag comes with a Connequ device inside. It can be connected to your smartphone or watch via Bluetooth so that it can trigger the alarm if it is far away from you without your knowledge. The geolocation device allows you to instantly locate your bag if you have become separated from it, whether because it has been lost or stolen, meaning there is no longer a need to carefully monitor your belongings on trains and in other busy places.

Incredibly, the Connequ device is as small as a coin and thus fits surreptitiously inside a leather tag. It also means you can keep track of your keys and wallet the same way, and even ring them if you can’t see them, which could make just leaving the house in the morning a lot easier. .
They have even more innovations planned for the future. The Bagmotic technology provided by Piquadro will allow you to use your bag to charge your phone and even to weigh yourself, perfect when you are about to board.
While the tech is more than awesome, you wouldn’t want to be seen carrying these bags unless their look is up to the task as well. Fortunately, the Piquadro pieces are all made from vegetable-tanned full-grain calfskin, washed using an original process that preserves all the warmth and allure of natural leather while accentuating its grain, softness and nuances of color. Their signature design element is the hand-dyed black trim that showcases the original design.
Piquadro bags are therefore perfect for the man who wants an elegant solution to the problem of life on the move. Each is available in classic black and beige, and the Connequ device label can be personalized with your initials. It’s really smart.
