Happy shopping and a very merry Christmas from all at Zatchels.
Here at Zatchels we’ve officially got that festive feeling and recently saw the official VIP opening of Westfield London’s spectacular ice rink! Situated directly below our kiosk boutique, the atrium is home to a 540 metre square ice rink which has a capacity of 160 skaters.
As you all know, we love a celebration and we thought what a better way to start that Christmas countdown than to get involved. Over the festive season, the rink will be hosting a selection of events including date nights, DJ evenings and more specifically “Family Fun,” – which Zatchels will be mostly involved in. We’ve got Zatchels for all the family and fun designs to help you release your inner child! Similar to a session on the ice!
Westfield London put on a spectacular showcase which kick started with champagne, cocktails and canapés to get guests feeling a little merry, before staging an incredible collaboration of entertainment. Professional ice skaters, choir singers and a final performance from Westfield London’s official charity Save the Children’s Ambassador choirboy, Jack Topping.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening and we cannot wait for Christmas now! The rink will be at Westfield London until the 5th Jan and we think it’s well worth a visit! Don’t forget to come and say hello to us at our kiosk boutique though, we can’t think of anything better than a personalised Zatchels to treat your nearest and dearest!

Founded in 1995, the contemporary art biennale is Asia’s oldest, and often shows work under a theme- this season’s being the British flag- and what could work better than a British made, Union Jack classic satchel?!

Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 years and under.
Taking place this year on Friday 20th September 2013, Jeans for Genes Day is the well-known annual fundraising event which simply asks the British public, children and adults alike to wear their jeans for the day and make a £1 / £2 donation. Jeans for Genes Day funds the care and support of children with genetic disorders through its grant programme. In 2013, 23 charities will benefit from the funds raised on Jeans for Genes Day.
“Do you prefer fashion victim, or ensembly challenged?”
The immortal words of Cher from hit 90s film Clueless ring in our minds even today. Of course, none of us want to be labeled a fashion victim, and this season looking back on Cher and her friends is the best inspiration for a fashion forward wardrobe.
From the little white dress “Calvin Klein Daddy!” to a complete tartan ensemble, if Cher really was clueless, it certainly wasn’t about fashion.
What’s more, this 90s look is really easy to create- the key is in the layering, combining your mini skirt with the classic over the knee socks, a vest over a baby-tee or open chiffon blouse in pace of a cardigan. To complete the look, add a headband to your glossy poker straight hair (or do a Dionne and try some cornrows!)
This maxi dress with leather bodice adds a tougher, grunge edge to the 90s look.
This white dress is the perfect way to bring a touch of Cher to your outfit. Great for a date with your crush!
All over tartan was even seen on the catwalks ready for Autumn / Winter 2013.
The perfect bag for any clueless occasion is a Zatchels Duffel Rucksack. Not only will it leave your hands free for your phone and shopping bags, it is also a timeless, chic alternative to the regular handbag.
Or check out these pastel saddle bags – the perfect size for all your essentials, and easy to match any girly summer dress (because duh! it never rains in Beverly Hills!)
Available in a wide range of colours, sizes and styles, Zatchels have a bag to compliment every outfit!
