In 2013, Covent Garden became home to the first ever Cambridge Satchel Company flagship store. Collaborations with Vivienne Westwood and recognition from the likes of the Prime Minister and Prince William were what followed. You could say that the brand is fit for royalty. This season, they’re demonstrating that pastels are not just for the brighter months. They have rewritten the rules with their new collection, made in Great Britain and inspired by Great Britain and the last of the summer.
From left to right: Medium Push Lock in Periwinkle Blue (£75), the 11” Satchel in Quince (£125), the Small Portrait Backpack in Periwinkle Blue (£150) and the Mini Poppy Bag in Dusky Rose (£95).
Edith Head once said "You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it." With a variety of sizes and styles, (and options to personalise), you’ll always be dressed for the occasion with their versatile collection. For a day at the office, opt for the gorgeously named Small Portrait Backpack in Periwinkle Blue and for a night in the city, the Mini Poppy Bag in Dusky Rose. If you were looking to carry a part of the summer with you while embracing the season ahead, this lovely handmade collection has just ended your search.
What The Cambridge Satchel Company say: “Inspired by the last hurrah of the summer and making the most of the British garden, we hope you find the new bag you've been looking for.” www.cambridgesatchel.com
