The Cambridge Satchel Company are the epitome of British handmade, quality and simply beautiful handbags.
Their array of designs, shades and styles have been a favourite of mine for many years.
I was recently (very kindly) sent the hugely popular and utterly gorgeous Cambridge Satchel Company Push Lock Bag. I adore the design of these bags. The vintage nod, the handy and practical size, the fact it can be worn three ways, and oh my goodness the PEONY BLUSH PINK has to be my favourite shade of theirs so far. It is just exquisite.
PEONY BLUSH PINK
The beautiful Peony Blush Pink is such a stunning shade of pink. It’s a rich deep pink that is a timeless classic. I love that it appears an ever so slightly different pop of pink in different lighting, especially in photographs. It is however such a gorgeous deep colour and its one that easily catches your eye.
It’s a shade that goes with just about everything in my wardrobe too. From denims to whites, black, greens, blues, beiges, you name it. This is one of those shades you will keep reaching for over and over again, regardless of the Season.
I love that it adds that ‘pop of colour’ to an outfit whilst still being subtle and classic.
The Cambridge Satchel Company Autumn collection features a soft Delphinium blue, rich Peony Blush pink and sunny Indian Summer yellow, all of which are inspired by the curiosity and beauty of what grows behind heavy courtyard doors and within the ruins of old churches. Living in a British Forest this whole collection is one that certainly resonates with me a lot and I adore them all. But I do think you just can’t beat a gorgeous girly pink really can you? The Peony Pink is just so so pretty.
PUSH LOCK BAG
I’m a huge fan of bags that can be worn different ways because you just get so much more wear out of them. Practical yet gorgeously stylish, and in the most beautiful 100% leather, making it an ideal bag for all Seasons, including the good old British Weather.
CROSSBODY BAG / SHOULDER STRAP
In more recent years I’ve been reaching more and more for crossbody bags. I just find them so much more comfortable and practical to wear. They leave you hands free (something we are all so much more aware of at the moment) and its especially helpful when carrying shopping bags, sanitising your hands and holding the children’s hands. The strap is adjustable with seven holes, so you could wear this as a handbag or crossbody bag and adjust to fit your height.
Equally though, by taking off the strap, this makes the perfect day-to-evening clutch bag. Ideal for the bars, pubs and restaurants (lockdown permitting), an ideal date night, brunch with the girls, type of bag. Again holding all the essentials you need in a perfectly comfortable size.
WHAT FITS INSIDE
Despite the fact this looks a small bag, it can certainly hold quite a bit. The Cambridge Satchel Company Push Lock bag has quickly become my everyday bag. Now that we are home more and commuting less, I find that I don’t need to carry the kitchen sink around me (and I will hopefully and very happily remain that way when it comes to handbags).
This bag is the perfect size to carry all your essentials, its perfect for the school run, supermarket shop, appointments, grabbing coffee, running errands, etc.
I like to keep the following in mine on a daily basis – card and coin wallet, iphone, face covering mask, hand sanitizer, lip balm, compact mirror, lipstick (I still wear it even under a mask), small pack of pocket tissues, plasters (they come in handy more times than I ever thought they would) and sometimes my sunglasses (without a hard case).
As each bag is handmade, the measurements may vary slightly but will be approx:
Width – 7.5″ / 19cm
Height – 6″ / 15cm
Depth (at base) – 2.4″ / 6cm
Approx. Weight – 0.34kg
Strap Length (which is adjustable) – 54.5″ / 138cm
Strap Width – 1/2″ / 1.3cm
PRICING AND HOW TO PURCHASE
The Cambridge Satchel Company Push Lock Bag is finished with a signature, easy to use push lock. The bag also comes with a dust bag for storage protection and your bag can be personalised too. You can have your initials or a symbol embossed on the bag for that personal touch. Such a unique and great gift idea with the Holiday Season quickly heading our way.
