To launch our brand new collaboration with British brand Brompton, manufacturer of the iconic folding bike, we headed to our hometown of Cambridge for a photo and video shoot.
Together, we’ve created three bespoke leather Batchels designed to incorporate with the front carrier system of any Brompton bike. As part of the collaboration, Brompton have also taken our signature Oxblood colour and created a brand new exclusive bike complete with our iconic logo and leather trimmings.
Cambridge is a famous cycling city so we couldn’t imagine a better backdrop for our shoot. Here’s what happened behind the scenes on the #CSCxBrompton bike ride.
We visited all of our favourite spots around the city. First stop, the Market Square. Then down to Jesus Lock to watch the punters, stopping of course, at our favourite restaurant Fitzbillies for a cinnamon bun.
Finally, saving the prettiest to last, we headed to Portugal Place, a street lined with brightly colour houses and and even brighter bikes!
Our models for the day were made up of members of both The Cambridge Satchel Company and Brompton Team. So, say hello to Maria, our Head of Graphic Design with the Brompton Batchel in Oxblood; Ella, our Marketing Executive with the Brompton Batchel in Turksih Green. And Nick, Press Officer at Brompton with the Brompton Batchel in Lagoon Blue.
Not forgetting the behind the camera team, made up of Anna, the photographer and Owen, the videographer and his team... all overseen by our Creative Content Producer, Sarah.
Our Marketing Executive, Ella definitely made the most of her outfit. All the clothes for the shot were provided by Boden (thanks Boden!).
