Harry Potter-Inspired Cambridge Satchel Company Is Rolling In The Dough

When we first wrote about Cambridge Satchel Company, the brand was still a fledgling start-up (like, we-had-to-have-them-reshoot-their-bags-so-the-images-were-usuable fledging). Two short years later, the British brand has won the Small Business and Businesswoman of the Year award in March at the News Business Excellence Awards, and is stocked on e-commerce sites around the web, from Urban Outfitters to ASOS. They've also partnered with J.Crew and Comme des Garçons. The brand was initially inspired by the old-school preppy style of Harry Potter's students, but their fluorescent-versions (that we could only see Luna Lovegood carrying), are their top-sellers, and have increased their sales nearly 350% in a year. How's that for having it in the bag? (WWD)
