5 reasons why the Satchel handbag is a must have April 20 2017
The New Collection launched online last November with an inspirational focus of universality and a cosmopolitan lifestyle. The Satchel bag is one of three in the collection and fully embodies the designer’s concept and vision of creating something that will find a place in the varied styles and cultures of international fashion.
Having already featured at London Fashion Week in collaboration with Ethologie and more recently made its appeal to global buyers at overseas trade shows in Los Angeles and Paris, the Satchel is already becoming a popular accessory for the upcoming summer season. This article explores the further intricacies of the distinctive handbag and clarifies how its unique twists will help to develop its presence in a wider market.
Having a handbag should not just be a style statement or a fashion fix; it should also be an accessory to your every day life. The Satchel from SHERENE MELINDA has a timeless attraction as it offers great comfort, versatility and function that can make it an attractive component of any outfit.
The Satchel has a leather top handle and a silver coloured chain and leather strap. The two straps are both removable and the longer strap is adjustable. This allows the wearer to adopt multiple styles suited to different outfits and occasions.
Inspired by the earthy hues of London architecture and the brighter shades of the city’s rich greenery and wildlife, the Satchel offers a range of colour that does not limit itself to the constraints of one season. The eclectic palatte includes classic blacks and browns, contemporary blues, burgundies and purples and vivacious tones of dazzling yellows and pinks.
The current collection online includes Autumn/Winter colours with Spring/Summer set to be released soon.
The modest size of the Satchel bag strikes the perfect balance between the demand of eveningwear and the practicality of daywear. Measuring at 25 cm wide, 5 cm deep and 18 cm high, the handbag provides ample room for the majority of occasions whilst still showcasing a style appropriate for nightlife of the modern day. The additional inclusion of several inside pockets including a mobile / lipstick pouch is also a thoughtful touch.
The Satchel bag maintains the symbolic feature of SHERENE MELINDA’s current line through the use of authentic and ethically sourced springbok hair-on-hide. This eye-catching material is reason alone to own a Satchel bag and is complimented flawlessly with a fully lined interior of entirely natural pigskin leather.
The historic style of a satchel bag dates back to Roman times and became increasingly popular throughout the 19th Century as a clothing accessory for various reasons. We explore these ideas further in this blog. The design has a truly universal attraction as a result of it being complimentary to a variety of body shapes, comfortable and for having an air of panache associated with modern fashion.
The Satchel bag is now available to buy online in Autumn/Winter colours. The latest season’s colours will be launched online soon so make sure you sign up to our mailing list or follow us on social media using the links below to stay up-to-date with its release.
