In fashion right now: leather satchels It may be the Easter holidays, but fashion is going back to school with vintage satchels fast becoming an essential wardrobe staple. With the likes of Alexa Chung championing this revival, it is clear that satchels are not only classic in style, but are also extremely practical. Francesca Murray has picked some of the best satchels available online now. I managed to bag (pun very much intended) this beautiful satchel at Marshmallow Mountain, a vintage shop just off Carnaby Street in London. Needless to say it was love at first sight. Whether you choose to fill yours with school books, an apple for teacher or your vintage treasures, the simple fact is that satchels are hot. Here are five classic styles available to buy online right now. 5 Responses Frankie - Swell Vintage April 9th, 2009 My desk looks so messy in that picture! Whoops x Reply Claira April 15th, 2009 It’s not messy, Frankie, it’s atmospheric. 😉 & I think I need a satchel right now (what was that noise? did my overstocked wardrobe just groan?? Traitor!) x Reply Benny Mitchell April 18th, 2009 These satchels rock!!!
