Cambridge Satchel Company #bagreview

Like kids in a candy shop this week, we have not been able to keep our hands off this kaleidoscopic array of souped up satchels by the Cambridge Satchel Company.  Available in every colour of the rainbow, who’d have thought that this once mundane school day accessory would come back with a vengeance in the form of these ridiculously fun, on-trend Cambridge Satchel classics.  Try The Cambridge Satchel Company Pink Matte Leather 11″ Satchel for a super sweet girly look or The Cambridge Satchel Company Fluoro satchel 13” for some dazzling, retro adornment.  Smacking of schoolgirl chic, these leather satchels are a must-have for those handbag-loving girls who just wanna have fun!

What are they made of?

Made entirely of leather, these messenger bags feature two large front adjustable buckle fastenings, a fold over flap, ample front pocket and that all important adjustable shoulder strap.  The thick, contrasting stitching adds to the idiosyncratic personality of these satchels and with a firm structured body, they are practical as well as fun.

How big are they?

The satchels sizes are mainly differentiated by their width, the smallest having a width of 11”.  With a height of 7.5”, the smallest model is ideal for essentials and is the ideal size (and design) for your festival handbag.  The next size up is 13”, with a height of 9” making this one the best choice for your everyday or office handbag, perfect for documents and your tablet.  The 14” width can accommodate A4 paper dimensions; however the 15” wide satchel is the perfect choice for the student, and with a height of 10” and a depth of 3.8” it will comfortably house folders and stationary.


 What colours are available?

These retro-chic satchels come in almost every colour you can think off.  Perfect for colour blocking you will be able to pick one up in baby or royal blue, pink, orange, coral, fluorescent yellow, purple, green, red, neutral, tan and black!


 Style tips

Made for the fun seeking woman, the Cambridge Satchel lover is a lover of life!  Ideal for Miss Practical or a Vintage Queen, she will have one in every colour and will adore slinging this satchel over her shoulder on one of her many explorative European city breaks or summer festivals.  Pair these colourful satchels with a denim sun dress and sandals by day, or a printed skater dress, a leather jacket and sky-high wedges by night.  Do your wardrobe a favour and buy yourself a Cambridge satchel!
