Fashion | Vivienne Westwood for The Cambridge Satchel Company

Thursday 9 July 2015

Quintessentially British. This collaboration couldn't get anymore British if it tried…
Vivienne Westwood is one of our Countries best loved and highly comended Fashion Designers. She started off as a Primary School teacher whilst selling handmade jewellery on a stall in the infamous Portobello Road. She has worked incredibly hard to get to where she is today and because of this she has incredible success as well as an immense following. Westwood has collaborated with one of the biggest homegrown accessories company - The Cambridge Satchel Company.

If you know me personally you'll know that I am a sucker for handmade clothing, accessories and more and when they've been handmade, here in the UK, that'll mean I'll love it 110% more. I dedicated my English Coursework to 'Buying British Clothing' as it's something I feel very passionate about - especially because British Fashion is important! This collection is perfect for promoting British Fashion and that's what I adore about it the most.

The designs of these bags are very Westwood indeed. Featuring Vivienne's trademark squiggle print (First seen on her A/W 1981 Pirate-Themed showcase). I'd say the bags are unisex although some would disagree - but it's honestly up to you, the consumer, what bag/colour/print suits your persona more.

As seen above are the three designs currently on The Cambridge Satchel Company's Official Website. The three designs are as follows:

  • Jet Green with Black Squiggle
  • Coral with Grey Squiggle
  • Navy with Yellow Squiggle
And the bag types are as follows:
  • Music Bag (£245)
  • 14" Satchel (£215)
  • Tiny Satchel (£115)
This collection is an amazing addition to the British Fashion Industry and I'm sure it will be remembered for many years to come. It's bold, unique and of course British; perfect for any fashionista who adores British Fashion!

I myself, own a Cambridge Satchel and I must just say, they're simply amazing. So durable, versatile and incredibly chic. Satchels have been made 'cool' again thanks to The Cambridge Satchel Company - and now Westwood has teamed up with them, Satchels are set to be HUGE in the coming seasons. Get yours HERE, today!
