It may seem an unlikely duo, but Vivienne Westwood and the Cambridge Satchel Company will be hooking up for a collaborative collection, in celebration of the bag brand's fifth anniversary.

Already considered an iconic Brit label, the limited edition Cambridge Satchel Company collection has been inspired by Vivienne's own 1981 Pirate theme.

Taking details from Viv's legendary Pirate boots, the new satchels will feature pale tan buckles and straps that replicate those on the now famous footwear. The original collection's 'Squiggle' print will also appear on satchels, in three different colourways.

"We've brought a quintessential British bag back into fashion and so when we thought about a dream British brand to work with on an anniversary range, Westwood was the most obvious choice for a collaboration and to keep the brand moving in a fashion direction," says Cambridge Satchel founder Julie Deane.

The new collection bags be available at Vivienne Westwood and Cambridge Satchel Company stores as of October, coming in two sizes - large 14" and the smaller 11" - that cost £195 and £165 respectively.
