I found out the wonderful news last week. New York Fashion Week started recently and designer Chris Benz has decided to collaborate with the iconic Cambridge Satchel Company to create a range of 2 tone satchels. These beautiful satchels have also been seen on a variety of celebrities including Zooey Deschanel, Dakota Fanning and Taylor Swift. This isn’t the first collaboration that The Cambridge Satchel Company has produced, the company has collaborated with Dover Street Market and even Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, who commissioned custom satchels bearing the Sterling Cooper Draper Price logo as an end-of-season gift for the cast. This collaboration however is the first US designer that has produced a collection for the company
In the collection there will be 9 colour variants and I would expect nothing less from Chris Benz and he is known for his love of colour. His take on the classic school satchel in my opinion is really cute and fun.The satchels are available in a range of colors including lilac, lemon, rose, duck egg, tangerine, green, red, white and brown. Here are some of the satchels that you will be able to get your hands on next year:
Personally my two favourite out of the photos that I have seen are the black and white one and also the pastel purple and white one. I can’t wait for this collection to be released next year so I can add to my collection – currently on order is my 11″ classic red satchel which should turn up in October so I’m really excited about that when it finally arrives.
What do you think of the Chris Benz x Cambridge Satchel collaboration?
