The satchel has recently become one of those ‘must have’ items for any fashion conscious soul, but when browsing for a new one I noticed that there are just so many brands to choose from. I’ve compiled (what I think are) the best of the bunch in hope to make it a little easier for you all, whether you’re buying for yourself or as a gift this season!
The ‘Bright’ Satchel
The brightly coloured satchel has become one of those items that can make any outfit pop. With colour blocking re-appearing every season, the easier way to achieve it is through accessories! My favourite bright satchel is the one above from the home grown Cambridge Satchel Company at £93, a company loved by ‘‘fashionista’s worldwide’’ and as seen on celebs such as Blondie and Kelis.
The Patterned Satchel
The patterned satchel is another that keeps appearing on my radar. This is mainly down to the company Zatchels, who have an absolutely amazing array of patterns and styles for any personality. From animal print to metallic, to stars, to polka dots; I challenge you to not find one you adore! The one I have in the photo below is the Cream Reptile Print satchel at £102.
The Vintage Satchel
A squeaky clean satchel isn’t for everyone, especially those vintage lovers which is why I’m showing you this beauty from Scaramanga, as seen in Glamour and Vogue. Inspired by the timeless classic leather old school satchel, Scaramanga’s women’s leather satchels and original leather satchels have a unique vintage style leather so you don’t have to wait years for that antique leather look; fab, eh? Scaramanga’s satchels range from the £40-£120 mark, and are currently giving away a free leather journal with every purchase! What are you waiting for?
The Mini Satchel
Sometimes a large satchel isn’t appropriate; for nights out and other such occasions, hence my suggestion of the mini satchel! The Leather Satchel Company also sell full sized and various colour alternatives but this mini white is my favourite. It would go with practically any outfit and would last you between seasons without a doubt. They are a company of trades people who have skillfully and lovingly created these handcrafted satchels since the late 60s. Grab one for yourself for just £74!
