1920s glamour – the Inspiration Behind Our 2017 Christmas Collection

Cambridge Satchel - 1920s glamour

“There’s nothing quite like the decadence of a Cambridge ball – glitz, glamour, and dancing under the stars”.

Those with a keen eye for design may have noticed an Art Deco theme running through our collections this year; from the glamour of the golden era of travel to the French Riviera in the 1920s.

Our Christmas collection is the grand finale of the year and continues this Art Deco theme. We are celebrating the party season with a collection which draws inspiration from the roaring ‘20s and the decadence of Cambridge college balls.

When designing the collection, we imagined that very Cambridge tradition of celebrating the end of term by donning party dresses and jewels, sipping champagne in the glittering college dining halls, and dancing beneath the moonlight until dawn with the bright young things of Cambridge.

The jazz-age references can be seen in the new-season metallic finishes (Silver, Gold, and holographic Silver Borderline) and adornments (gold rivet studs and tassels).

The collection also introduces three new prints perfect for the festive season: the foiled Zig Zag chevron, golden Star Haze, and monochrome Deco fan (a nod to the iconic fan-vaulted ceiling of one of our Cambridge’s King’s College Chapel).

But as much as we love a good party, the Art Deco mood translates just as beautifully to our favourite daywear colours for the new season. The soft, muted hues of Peach Pink, Clay, and French Grey are the perfect accompaniment for this winter’s colour palette, but will also see you through to spring (and beyond).

We hope you love the new season collection as much as we do! Now, if you’ll excuse us, we have a party (or three) to get to…
