Usually when we say a collection is “finally” here, we are being overly dramatic. But it actually feels like we’ve been waiting for the Chris Benz for The Cambridge Satchel Company bags for-ev-er. We’ve been stalking the collaboration since September, when the limited-edition satchels debuted during Benz’s spring 2013 presentation at NYFW. The cute two-toned purses were supposed to be available in early March at J. Crew and Bloomingdales but we couldn’t find them online anywhere. Then, J. Crew teased us by putting the black and white version of the bag in their spring lookbook… but it was only available for pre-order by phone (how archaic). After months of
stalking checking, this morning we noticed that the bags are FINALLY available at jcrew.com. We think the wait made the bags even cuter (or is that just our imagination?). Scroll down to shop Chris Benz’s take on your favorite satchel:
You can also shop the pastel versions of the bag at cambridgesatchel.com.
