The satchel is a hot bag. The satchel is a hot bag. The satchel is a hot bag… We keep hearing this over and over and seeing it represented by many handbag designers. The styles range from classic, preppy, outdoorsy, sophisticated, and executive in design. Fashion forward and colorful? Not so much. Enter a rising star designer: Meredith Wendell.
Pop style, color-blocking immediately set this bag apart from most satchels. Strong contrasting colors or black, white, silver and grey or vibrant red, cobalt, turquoise and periwinkle make bold statements while offering the high functionality of a satchel.
Meredith and Wendell German founded Meredith Wendell in 2008. All handbags are crafted in Florence Italy using Italian leathers and feature handmade American glass accents. In her childhood, Meredith spent a great deal of time around the famous West Virginia Greenbrier hotel with it’s Dorothy Draper designed interiors. Her love of color is referenced within elements of her bags. As a lover of art glass, I appreciate this incorporation of pure color!
