Cambridge Satchel x Vivienne Westwood Collection
This autumn/winter, beloved British designer Vivienne Westwood applies her distinct punk and rebellious style to The Cambridge Satchel Company’s classic satchel designs. The unisex three bag capsule collection is strictly limited edition and incorporates Westwood’s infamous squiggle print.
On the project, The Cambridge Satchel Company founder Julie Deane says:
“I could not feel more excited to announce the collaboration of Vivienne Westwood and The Cambridge Satchel Company. Vivienne Westwood is an iconic British designer with a strong ethical base and I am incredibly proud of the association.”
With the Westwood design team adding:
We are very pleased to be working with The Cambridge Satchel Company for this collaboration. Their satchels are nostalgic and fun and make the perfect canvas for our squiggle print.”
The satchels are constructed from premium leather and handmade right here in Britain. They come in two sizes: 14″ for £195 and 11″ for £165, and three colour ways: yellow with black squiggle, white with red squiggle and brown with black squiggle. The squiggles were first seen in Westwood’s iconic 1981 ‘Pirate’ collection, whilst the bag buckles and straps are replicas of those used on the pirate boots featured within the same showcase.
The collection shows the incredible growth and success of The Cambridge Satchel Company, which was started on a budget of just £600 in founder Julie Deane’s kitchen. The company has since gone on to be stocked worldwide with their own standalone store in London’s Covent Garden.
The bags are available exclusively at Vivienne Westwood standalone boutiques and The Cambridge Satchel Company stores.
