I have already made a pre-order for a fluorescent orange color Cambridge Satchel bag from Doorstep Luxury and could not resist making another pre-order when its classic colors are also available at Doorstep Luxury!!! I have ordered a vintage brown 13 inch bag and it should be delivered around mid May. There is a 5% discount and i paid S$171 for it. The pre-order will close 9am tomorrow so those who love the bags should get it soon :) I also love the green, yellow, purple and red color bags and wish i could have all of them hehe then i will be able to carry a different color bag daily ;)

Here is an article from Her World about the classic color bags:

Cult bag now available in classic shades

The Cambridge Satchel Company’s bags are such a hot item with fashionistas in the know around the world, that when a Singapore online store offered versions in exclusive neon colours for per-order, they sold out within hours.

So Doorstep Luxury grabbed the opportunity and now you can pre-order the cult satchels in more classic shades like black, navy and vintage brown, as well as other bright – but not screaming neon – colours including red, yellow, purple, green and pink.

Using the new Facebook function “Shop Now”, Singapore bag lovers can pre-order the traditional-style satchels in a variety of sizes as well; from 11 inches to 15 inches.

Singapore’s top fashion blogger Bagaholicboy was instrumental in urging Doorstep Luxury to grab the Cambridge satchels, and his posts on both the fluroescent bags and now the classic colours have helped cement them as the “must have” bag for fashionistas in the region.

Bagaholicboy will be presenting an Autumn Winter 2011 capsule collection for Doorstep Luxury which is why he’s so involved. He even has suggestions as to which size and colour satchel or batchel – a satchel with a handle – is best depending on whether you’re male or female or want to carry an iPad or A4 documents!

The “regular” colours are even more affordable than the capsule collection neon colour bags, from $170 for the 11 inch size to $200 for the 15 inch version. The batchel (pictured below) only comes in the 15 inch size but is available in all eight traditional colours; it costs $220.

If you’re looking for something that will stand out even more, try the multi-colour 14 inch batchels; they are available in three combinations – green with blue trim, purple with yellow and vintage brown with navy trim. At $280 these bags are still amazingly affordable, and if you use the Facebook application you’ll get a 5 per cent discount as well.

The Shop Now application is relatively easy to use; I gave it a try and while I certainly don’t need another bag I couldn’t resist a super classic, schoolboy batchel in black. 

You can use your PayPal account if you have one – which I don’t, it’s too tempting – or sign up to use your credit card via the PayPal system. It’s more complicated and time consuming but it makes you really think about the purchase, which is great for shopaholics.

The bags will be available for delivery by the middle of next month and shipping to Singapore addresses is free.

To order a Cambridge Satchel Company bag from Doorstep Luxury, go to the website’s Facebook Shop Now page. For more unique accessories available in Singapore, check out the Doorstep Luxury website at and for more news and views on handbags from Singapore son Bagaholicboy go to
