PRLog - Dec. 21, 2012 - NEW YORK -- The Cambridge Satchel Company has revealed it will launch a collection for men in the new year at Pitti Immagine Uomo. The range designed exclusively for men comes in response to the demand from retailers for a collection that showcases the more male elements within Cambridge Satchels without losing either their unisex appeal or the character of the brand.
Due to launch in A/W13 the range will feature 75 pieces, in a variety of styles and sizes including Classic, Batchel, Music Bag and Backpack and see the introduction of new colors including pale grey, neutral, Monaco blue, cobalt and dark bottle green. Other new lines will include tartan pocket, embossed crock, patent crock, Fluoro and a 1914 Classic Vintage embossed design. All bags will be available in 14" and 15" sizes.
The range will be showcased for the first time at Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence in January. It is the first time the brand has appeared at the trade show and will offer the best international buyers in the world a chance to see the collection.
Julie Deane, Founder of The Cambridge Satchel Company, said “We are thrilled to be launching our first ever men’s collection. The range looks amazing and I know the bags will be extremely popular. I can’t wait to show them off at Pitti in January and hear what everyone else thinks of them.”
The men’s collection will initially be available to buy from www.cambridgesatchel.co.uk.
