Hello and happy Friday fellow fashionistas. We’ve got some amazing accessory news to share in honor of London Fashion week. One of our favorite footwear brands, Brazilian plastic footwear brand, Melissa, has announced an exciting new collaboration with iconic British handbag and accessories brand, The Cambridge Satchel Company. Officially launched today, the first day of London Fashion Week, Melissa and The Cambridge Satchel Company welcome the Melissa X CSC Satchel Collection. The contemporary capsule collection of bags features Cambridge’s classic 11″ satchel, in Melissa’s signature Melflex plastic, giving CSC cutomers a vegan alternative. The Melissa X CSC Collection is the perfect blending of British heritage and Melissa’s innovative and stylish designs, giving the bags both a modern and timeless feel.
The re-envisioned Melissa The Cambridge Satchel Company 11-inch satchels feature classic buckle closures, detailed stitching, easy-to-open pin closures, an adjustable strap, and nickel-free metal hardware with authentic “Cambridge” branding. The bags boast a glossy finish, a delectable bubblegum scent, and is entirely waterproof, perfect for London, who averages around fifteen rainy days a month. Production for the Melissa X CSC Collection was moved to Melissa’s manufacturing facilities in Brazil specifically for the collaboration (The Cambridge Satchel Company bags are traditionally handmade in England). The stylish Melissa X CSC Collection bags are offered in three distinct colorways: Black, Red, and limited edition color, Holographic.
