Following the news that it is to open its first ever standalone store in London’s Covent Garden in February 2013, The Cambridge Satchel Company has also announced that the new year will see the launch of its debut men’s collection.
An elegant 75-piece range, expected to launch in AW13 via Italian fashion events group Pitti Imagine Uomo, the men’s collection will incorporate classic styles including Classic, Batchel and Backpack, alongside designs in new colours that will offer the ideal accompaniment to fashion-conscious gentlemen. With shades including pale grey, neutral, Monaco blue, cobalt and dark bottle green there is something to suit every style, from suited and booted to tie-eschewing trendsetter.
The new line will also feature chic embellishments from tartan pocket to embossed crock, patent crock and Fluoro, in addition to a 1914 Classic Vintage embossed design. The full range will be available in both 14” and 15” sizes and will be unveiled for the first time in January at the Pitti Imagine Uomo trade show in Florence, marking another first for the beloved British brand.
I can hardly wait to surprise Daddy with his very own Cambridge Satchel when the brand new men’s collection becomes available from the company’s website in the new year.
