Kellog’s Special K Advert Features Zatchels

Zatchels are excited to have been featured in the May edition of Glamour magazine as part of an advertorial by Kellogs Special K in conjunction with celebrity stylist Gemma Rose Breger.

Special K is synonymous with the colour red, and our bags in the same colour was an obvious choice especially as our red satchel is consistently our number one bestseller season after season.

Zatchels can be seen featured prominently across the whole article with our classic red satchel and red & white polka satchels taking centre stage and even our chestnut micro satchel makes an appearance.

Stylist Gemma shares her love of discovering Zatchels

“I love Zatchels bags… perfect for adding a modern update to your outfit. The satchel bags are great for fitting enough for my work day, plus my laptop that comes everywhere with me. I love that they come in a range of prints. I’m also a huge fan of the backpacks, especially the mint green. I’m always drawn to bags that are practical and stylish. If I can be hands free to carry all the clothes when prepping for photo shoots, then it makes my day so much easier!”

We love the way Gemma Rose has combined catwalk styling with high street fashion showing how our Zatchels customers and Glamour magazine readers can effortlessly get some of the key looks of the season without necessarily breaking the bank balance.

Shop the Look – Zatchels’ Spring Wishlist

With lots of new products hitting the Zatchels’ website for Spring Summer 2014, we thought we’d share with you some of our favourite new styles and how they can be worn taking inspiration from A-list celebrities and catwalk shows.

One of the biggest colours of the season is blue – and we love it – from the soft muted tones of our baby blue bags to the more vibrant cornflower satchel seen above. Blue is also an absolute classic for Spring when worn with nautical stripes and we particularly like this fresh update.

With lots of weddings on the way for Spring, pastels and florals are also at the top of our #springwishlist especially when worn together incorporating pastel violet and delicate green shades, as well as the brighter daffodil yellow.

Zatchels’ bags are effortless to wear whether dressing them up or down – so one of our other favourite looks for the season is monochrome. A great way to take your wardrobe through this transitional period with its changeable weather and still look fantastic when the sun does shine.
