From The Archive: 2016

The year of travel- from Aus to Africa- as well as some of my favourite ever photos, I hope 2016 brings a small dose of wanderlust (and fashion inspiration if not)!

I must’ve been about 17 when I bought my first Cambridge Satchel Company bag. After seeing it peppered in street style photographs, on the arm and shoulder of Alexa Chung and Zooey Deschanel and with the promise of university around the corner (which was short-lived, unlike my love for this bag)- it almost felt like a late-teen rite of passage, and it was, and still is, the perfect classic bag in my wardrobe.

The thing I love most about their bags is their balance of practicality and style. They’re the perfect size for everything from everyday essentials (read: portable phone charger, Stylist magazine and my ‘help-me-see-the-train-times-specs, to laptops- but still ooze the charm of somewhat of a wardrobe staple- heck, I’ve even used the classic as a clutch on a night out. But, forward to 2016, and things have changed a little since then…

…Although the classic satchel still is as timeless as a boater breton or pair of 501’s- Cambridge Satchel have recently upped their game and extended their line, with some more trend led items (even if it’s as subtle as the perfect tonal hue) and menswear pieces joining the family. One of their latest additions, and one of my personal favourites, is the Poppy bag. With it’s delicate rounded details, modern silver hardware and Pantone-ice-cream palette; I think it’s safe to say we’re going to get along just dandy…

Location care of the wonderful ladies at Palm Vaults in Hackney- my favourite little spot for ‘gramming, indulging in avo toast and yes, enjoying their PINK LATTES too. Which taste of red velvet and marshmallow. Head here to find them!

Post in collaboration with Cambridge Satchel Company; which, in short- was a complete honour. 18 year old Liv feels a little like this right now.
