Handmade in Great Britain, I'm smitten with Cambridge Satchel's high quality leather and the iconic design.Cambridge Satchel is more than a fashion accessory. To me, the timeless design represents a specific attitude and lifestyle. I have had mine for a couple of years and I carry them almost everywhere. I thought it's about time to share my review and how I style them.

|劍橋包側揹款11吋心得和穿搭|

我最早購入的是11吋的側背款劍橋包,擁有的顏色分別是經典的寶石紅和奶油裸色。11吋的尺寸不大,窄窄的剛好放下我的10吋iPad、口紅、手機、和皮夾。除了主要的裡層容量,外層另外還有一個小夾層。我喜歡側背款的變化,除了以學院風的姿態掛在身上,收起揹帶也可以當成手拿包,給舉手投足間一個比較成熟的選擇。劍橋包復古式的扣環不是很容易扣,不過這點不影響我對劍橋包設計的喜愛,我通常就是扣帶穿進環裡並不再另外扣起。因是百分百牛皮製作,所以包包內裡沒有內襯。目前官網單筆訂單50歐元以上(約等於台幣1750元)全球免運,非常划算。

|The 11" Cambridge Satchel Review & Style|

The 11" satchel is my first Cambridge Satchel purchase. I own the same style in classic red and cream just because I love them so much. For the compartment, there are one main big and one outer small compartments. My 10" iPad fits well, along with my lip stick, cell phone and wallet. The 11" satchel is the perfect size for everyday essentials. Aside from the size, I love how versatile the adjustable shoulder strap is. Carry it cross the body for a classic preppy style or hold it as a clutch for a clean and refined look. Also, I have to say the nickel buckles on the bag are not easy to fasten and unfasten. I personally don't mind it but some people complain about this traditional buckle-closure design. I usually have one or both buckles undone instead of fastening carefully. As the bag is made 100% leather, it doesn't have an inner lining. The Cambridge Satchel official website is now offering free global shipping on orders over $54.

|劍橋包後背款14吋心得和穿搭|

我後來再購入了14吋的經典棕色後背包,內部空間寬敞許多,可以豪邁些放更多細碎小物,甚至裝得下我13吋的筆電。我很喜歡後背款的學生味道和細膩氣質,包包上面的手把也多了手提的功能,出門的日常生活所需質感,一切交給劍橋包背負。

棕色的高實搭性容易過度著迷或著說讓人發懶,因為不管穿什麼顏色的衣服,幾乎都不會有衝突,還多了分皮革色的優雅。紮實的牛皮用料和手工讓所有的劍橋包形狀都維持得很好,也相當耐用,到目前為止我手邊擁有的都沒有變形或褪色。(同場加映:點綴黑白灰的穿搭色:焦糖棕

官網目前後背的新款是直立式的 Portrait 版本,尺寸是一樣的,且扣環改為更為方便的磁扣。

|The 14" Cambridge Satchel Backpack Review & Style

My third Cambridge Satchel is the 14" leather backpack in vintage tan. The main compartment is pretty spacious. I fit my 13" Macbook Air, cell phone, portable charger, purse, and an assortment of cosmetics. The additional top handle makes it more practical. The color vintage tan is such a timeless and elegant color. It's easy to go with lots of other clothing. The high quality of leather makes the bag very durable and structured even after extensive use. So far, all the bags I have from The Cambridge Satchel Company are still stiff.

The current Portrait Backpack on the Cambridge Satchel official website is the same size as the 14" and has the convenient magnetic buckles.
