Cambridge Satchels available at Bohemia

Cambridgesatchels

It's not often that a hot item in magazines like Italian Vogue ticks all the boxes for Retro To Go as well, but that's most certainly the case with these Cambridge Satchels. The company's new bag ranges are set to become something of a cult favourite, and with looks and craftsmanship like these it's easy to see why.

Made in a variety of sizes and colours, each satchel uses thick, great quality leather to make bags every bit as sturdy as the classroom classics of old. Shown above are a classic brown 14" version and the quirkier red 11" – ideal for men or women, these are an investment well worth making.

Now available online from Bohemia, they retail from £75 (decidedly cheaper than the £88 Urban Outfitters are asking).
