The Cambridge Satchel Company, having already taken the world by storm by creating satchels worthy of any student at Hogwarts in neon (not to mention a lot of copycats), has done it again. This time however, they’ve enlisted the help of menswear designer Christopher Shannon to create these fantastic backpacks for a S/S12 capsule collection.
Not a stranger to designing luggage and formerly with Eastpak, Shannon’s approach was simple – while still keeping the design integrity of The Cambridge Satchel intact, he vertically elongated it’s shape while adding new elements including fringe to matte and patent leather. Plus, when your source of inspiration is 80’s pop singer/deejay John ’Jellybean’ Benitez, the outcome is sure to be interesting.
Due to drop in stores soon, as you can see for yourselves, The Cambridge Satchel Company has yet another hit on their hands so be on the lookout.
