Reviewing The Cambridge Satchel Poppy Top Handle
Yesterday afternoon, I found one that deserved a shopping alert all its own: the new Cambridge Satchel Poppy Top Handle Bag.It’s exceedingly rare that I peruse a fashion retailer’s new arrivals and think to myself, “Whoa, that’s a good deal.” Even when it comes to contemporary designs, bags usually look more or less as expensive as they are, and when they don’t, we try to document the fashion world’s rare good values in as much detail as possible.
The bag is medium-sized and unlined, which would make it a solid, lightweight work bag as long as you don’t need to carry files or a laptop.Cambridge Satchel’s bags almost always look more expensive than they are because the brand uses smooth leather and sticks with structured, classic styles, which are relatively uncommon at a price point that often embraces softer, slouchier bags that appeal to younger, more casual shoppers.
In addition to the generously sized top handle, the bag also has a removable shoulder strap, which ups its versatility and also makes it feel a bit more modern. The Cambridge Satchel is always a reliable source, and this new top handle is the brand’s best effort yet.
