Cambridge Satchel Company x Christopher Shannon

Look Good:

Loving this snazzy collaboration between Cambridge Satchel  Company x  Christopher Shannon.  Gracing Spring/Summer 2013 men’s runway in London last week, for me, it was love at first (thumbnail) sight. Cambridge Satchel Company is already king of the sleek English schoolboy bag. The collaboration with Shannon maintains the satchel's classic shape but, of course, Shannon funkti-fies them in his signature, spectacular way - color blocking, fringe, shine, even just a good old sleek black model. The backpacks belonged to men on the runway but I’m pretty sure they’ll be unisex on the street.

Last year Cambridge Satchel gifted me a black satchel with my initials monogrammed on it, seldom do we part. The genius of Cambridge Satchel is in their mastery of the classic combined with fearlessness of the fresh and progressive. In addition to the classics, they offer a variety of bags in vibrant colors including some of the most intense neon shades around. So what started as a cult blogger fad has become a global fashion staple. Superb quality and equally fantastic design is not something that fads are made of- Cambridge Satchel Company is here to stay.
