Once again, The Cambridge Satchel Company and Vivienne Westwood have teamed up to bring a trio limited edition of bags, available for the fall/winter season starting July 7th, 2015. The three styles, “the tiny” ($180 ), “the classic 14”” satchel ($335 ), and “the music bag” ($380), are unisex and feature a design inspired by Westwood’s iconic boots from her 1981 “Pirate” collection. To make the bags’ story even more unique, the squiggle print found on them (screen printed directly on to the leather) was done by the same British printer who has been producing Westwood’s Pirate Boots for over 30 years.
If you’re not familiar with the brand The Cambridge Satchel Company, it started in 2008 by a mom and daughter duo, with bags that are handmade in the UK and feature the finest materials and craftsmanship. Vivienne Westwood as a woman and a brand has forged a distinct, thought-provoking career in fashion that has spanned five decades and today is a recognized and independent global brand.
If you love these bags as much as I do, you may want to pick one up at its select retailers: exclusively at Vivienne Westwood standalone boutiques, The Cambridge Satchel Company stores, and online at www.CambridgeSatchel.com.
