THE SATCHEL IS BACKIf only I had kept mine from my school days!
Blazer H & M
Satchels are so ubiquitous on the high-street right now. It’s quite interesting observing all the different styles that have evolved from something I used to wear to school many moons ago. When it comes to satchels though, I do carry a loyalty for two brands in particular: The Cambridge Satchel Company - the company responsible for ‘bringing the satchel back’ – and Zatchels; they both tick the boxes for quality, originality and affordability, in addition to being real-leather and ‘Made In Britain’.
Before I spent my hard earned disposable income on this satchel, I asked my mum whether by any chance she had kept my brown rustic satchel as a memento of my first days at school (she kept my milk teeth!), to which she replied “no”. It would have been so special and nostalgic to be carrying around a vintage satchel that was second-hand only to me! Oh well, I was left with no other alternative but to log on to the Zatchels website.
The story behind the boots: they were the closest look-a-like to the Givenchy Fold-Over boots I've been lusting after.
Do you own a satchel or know anyone who still has their old satchel from school?
