Last week I had the pleasure of attending the opening of The Cambridge Satchel Company’s shiny new flagship store, which is a stone’s throw away from the iconic Covent Garden Piazza.
The term flagship store doesn’t really do the space justice; the store is actually a six floor townhouse with two sprawling retail floors in addition to a showroom and space for the head office.
The basement features an adorable beach hut which is some to their bespoke embossing service. The store also features a lounge area for bloggers and editors to work or relax with free wifi – hello new blogging spot!
The store also features limited edition pieces, like the ‘Metallic Mini’ collection.
The party was a very British affair, we drank English sparkling wine, ate Chelsea buns and Neal’s Yard cheese while gin cocktails were served in antique china cups at the secret tea party.
