ally capellino messenger bags

for all the recessionistas out there: designers collaborating with other fast fashion retailing firms isn't a new idea, but it's a great way to score a similar item from the designer's range for usually much less. here's one of the better kept secrets: british designer ally capellino's cotton bags are both functional and stylish, but she also did a special range for london's tate museum which is equally stylish but at much affordable prices!

ally capellino beige jeremy waxed cotton messenger bag
beige waxed cotton shoulder bag with tan leather trim. bag has envelope style opening with double tan leather strap fastening and brown canvas shoulder strap. bag is lined in cream and brown pinstripe canvas. 38cm x 26cm x 11cm. available from my-wardrobe for £151.

ally capellino satchel black
black artist's satchel bag created specially for tate by ally capellino and features her distinctive use of durable, utilitarian yet beautiful materials. internally the bag has a main section with two zip pockets. 30cm x 30cm x 6cm. available from the tate museum shop for £35.23.

you obviously get a lot more for your money with the waxed cotton messenger, better lining, better looking waxed cotton, leather base etc. but if it is for no frills travelling, the tate option is a decent watered down choice.

hmmm i need to get myself down to the tate, it's been a l00o00g while since i last went.

  3. Copped the black canvas satchel today from Tate. I am really happy with it too so thanks for the heads up on it in the first place! The quality is great, especially the leather straps and as well as the zip-up compartment you have a photo of there's another zip-up compartment inside the bag.

    On top of this satchel they also have a range of other items as a part of the collaboration with Ally Capellino and these include a canvas tote bag with leather handles not unlike the straps on the satchel as well as a pencil case and artist's apron all made from canvas as well although the latter items are khaki in colour and not black.

    Once again, cheers for the heads up, because it's a nice, trendy and cheap alternative to my dream Mulberry messenger bag for the time being! ;)
