Hate To Say I Told You So, But Cambridge Satchel Company's Neon Bags Have Officially Tipped

September 13, 2011 by Charlotte Steinway

From left: Brad Goreski at NYFW, and a photo I snapped of a Cambridge Satchel Company-adorned onlooker at Rachel Roy.

As Teen Vogue editor Eva Chen so aptly tweeted, “Things I’ve spotted a LOT of @ NYFW: @Equipment_FR shirts (good), neon Cambridge satchels (good), 100% sheer maxi skirts w leotards (bad).” And boy, was she correct—especially about the satchels.

Since I finally received my neon Cambridge Satchel Company bag last Friday (cue melodramatic saga after the jump), I’ve been wearing it to Fashion Week events and continuously getting snapped by street style photogs—but I am far from the only one getting the attention. Brad Goreski (pictured above) has officially made his neon Cambridge Satchel the “it” bag of NYFW, alongside plenty of other attendees, like the journalist I snapped a picture of at Rachel Roy, above.

When I first wrote about Cambridge Satchel Company’s neon bags a few months ago, I had already placed my order for my 11″ fluorescent yellow monogrammed bag as what was then considered to be an early birthday present to myself. But, considering I didn’t get it shipped to me until almost three months later, I’m starting to consider it more of an early Christmas present. Check it out below:

But the real question is why did it take so long to ship? According to WWD, it turns out that sales of the Cambridge Satchel Company bags in 2012 are expected to increase more than 350 percent from this past June—when I first wrote the post about them “being the next big thing.” Going from $3.5 million in sales to $16 million in roughly the amount of time I waited for my bag to arrive?! I guess I can’t blame them, they were too busy building a global satchel empire.

Love Cambridge Satchel Company bags but can’t stand the wait? We found some Doc Marten’s knockoffs that look almost identical.
